Packers still uncertain about kicking situation

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - While the Green Bay Packers may have decided on their backup quarterback, they're still uncertain about their kicking situation.

On Sunday, the Packers announced the release of incumbent No. 2 quarterback Graham Harrell, making it likely that Vince Young will open the season as Aaron Rodgers' backup.

Also, the Packers signed kicker Zach Ramirez and had him competing with Mason Crosby and Giorgio Tavecchio, who've been battling throughout camp.

"How do I feel about the kicking position? We had three kickers (on) the practice field today. I think that illustrates how exactly we feel about the kicking position," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said.

"There's a job available and someone needs to jump through the door and take it. That hasn't happened yet."
