GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Scott Tolzien will remain the starting quarterback as Aaron Rodgers continues to recover from a broken collarbone.
McCarthy said Monday that Tolzien will start Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field, even though the coach said he had not yet spoken with the team's medical personnel about where Rodgers stands with his injury.
Tolzien completed 24 of 34 passes for 339 yards, but threw three interceptions in the Packers' 27-13 loss to the New York Giants Sunday in his first NFL start.
A week earlier, Tolzien came on for an injured Seneca Wallace after one series in a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, and McCarthy tabbed him the starter after that game.
