Thursday's Game Important For Packers Back-ups

Posted:

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- If everything goes according to plan for the Green Bay Packers, Thursday night's preseason finale in Kansas City will be the last time anybody sees Matt Flynn at quarterback for a while.

In two seasons as a starter, Aaron Rodgers has shown an impressive combination of productivity and durability. Still, Flynn must be ready to step in if called upon, so he's treating Thursday's game as a significant chance to sharpen his skills.

Meanwhile, No. 3 quarterback Graham Harrell has shown steady improvement during training camp, and could use Thursday's game to solidify his spot on the team -- even if it's just on the practice squad.
