At his Monday press conference, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said quarterback Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) is “a couple weeks away” from returning to action, Paul Imig of FoxSportsWisconsin reported.
McCarthy also confirmed that free-agent quarterback Matt Flynn had worked out for the club, but he indicated no decision had been made on whom will back up Scott Tolzien for Sunday’s game at the Giants.
“Well, Matt Flynn’s here. He went through his workout this morning. Looks good,” McCarthy said. “That’s really all I have all for you right now. Everything else is a work in progress. I just came from the training room. A lot of the information that you need to make decisions is still coming in, so we’re still trying to put it all together.”
Flynn, 28, played for the Packers from 2008 through 2011. He has had stints with Oakland and Buffalo this season.
Asked if Seneca Wallace (groin) would be available on Sunday, McCarthy said: “His information is one of the ones that just came in, so I don’t have an answer for you.”
Wallace started Sunday’s 27-13 loss against the Eagles but departed in the first quarter with his injury. Tolzien, who was promoted from the practice squad earlier in the week, completed 24-of-39 passes for 280 yards with one TD and two interceptions.
“I thought he played an outstanding football game based on the amount of preparation,” McCarthy said of Tolzien on Monday. ” . . . I saw a young man get better during the course of the game running plays he hasn’t played yet and doing things that I thought was exceptional for a young quarterback. I was very pleased with his performance.”
