The Packers, who were down to one healthy quarterback on Sunday vs. Philadelphia, will work out veteran passer John Skelton, Lauren Magiera of WAOW-TV in Wausau, Wisconsin reported on Monday.
Skelton, 25, was most recently with the 49ers, who waived him on Oct. 9 after a week’s stint in San Francisco. Skelton also spent about five months with the Bengals before being let go after the 2013 preseason.
Scott Tolzien, who played the bulk of the Packers’ 27-13 loss to the Eagles, will start next week’s game at the Giants. However, it’s unclear who will back him up. Seneca Wallace, who started Sunday’s game, suffered a groin injury in the first quarter, and his status for next week is uncertain.
Skelton started 17 regular-season games with the Cardinals from 2009 through 2011. For his career, he’s completed 320-of-602 passes for 3,707 yards with 15 TDs and 25 interceptions.
