=== Tolzien to start again for Packers ===
 
 Green Bay, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Aaron Rodgers is still not ready to return
 from  his fractured  left collarbone, meaning Scott Tolzien will draw a second
 straight start at quarterback for the Green Bay Packers this coming week.
 
 Head coach Mike McCarthy confirmed that Tolzien, who has spent the majority of
 this  season  on the  practice squad,  will be under  center when the slumping
 Packers host Minnesota this weekend during his Monday press conference.
 
 Rodgers,  who suffered  the injury to his non-throwing shoulder on the opening
 possession  of Green Bay's Week 9 loss to rival Chicago, had been hoping to be
 ready to go for the Minnesota game. However, McCarthy stated that the 2011 NFL
 MVP has not yet been medically cleared to play.
 
 "I  don't make  medical decisions," said McCarthy on Rodgers' status. "We know
 he wants to return as soon as he can, when he can."
 
 Backup  Seneca Wallace  sustained a season-ending groin injury during his lone
 start  in Rodgers' place,  elevating Tolzien into the No. 1 role for this past
 Sunday's  game against the New York Giants. The former Wisconsin signal-caller
 did  amass 339  yards while completing 24-of-34 passes in his first NFL start,
 but threw three second-half interceptions in the Packers' 27-13 loss.
 
 Green Bay did bring back Matt Flynn, Rodgers' understudy for four seasons from
 2008-11,  last  week.  However,  the  move  was  apparently  more  to  provide
 experienced depth at the position.
 
 The  Packers  have been in  a free-fall since  Rodgers went down, losing three
 consecutive  games to drop  to 5-5 on the season. Green Bay currently sits one
 game behind co-leaders Detroit and Chicago in the NFC North.
