QB, offensive line question marks for Packers

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - For the first time since the strike-interrupted season of 1987, the Green Bay Packers are getting ready to work on their third starting quarterback in three straight games.

The Packers also might have a reshuffled offensive line protecting first-time NFL starter Scott Tolzien against the New York Giants on Sunday.

Injuries have forced Green Bay to not only turn to Tolzien as the latest replacement for Aaron Rodgers, but also resulted in significant changes on the line.

The Packers ended last week's loss to Philadelphia with different players at three of the five lineman positions than how they started the game.

But the outlook for the matchup with the Giants is somewhat encouraging as Green Bay (5-4) looks to end a two-game losing streak.

Right tackle Don Barclay, who suffered a knee injury against the Eagles, didn't practice this week and is questionable for Sunday.

Center Evan Dietrich-Smith, who also left the game with a knee injury, was held out of practice Friday but is probable.
