Roster Moves: Packers Open Up A Spot For Scott Tolzien

It doesn't look like the Packers are going to make a move for a quarterback, except to promote QB Scott Tolzien to the 53-man roster. They might have signed QB Matt Flynn if his elbow was OK, but the fact that he cleared waivers unclaimed is a sign that he's probably still injured. Going with only Tolzien and QB Seneca Wallace makes sense because QB Aaron Rodgers could return by the end of the month. Here are the other roster moves they've made, including one to open up a spot for Tolzien.
I'm still in the camp that believes Finley's career is over, though that's not his current plan. Barrington is a surprise, he was injured at some point on Monday night, and his injury would have been a major problem a couple weeks ago because back then he was their only depth at linebacker. But now LB Brad Jones is back (with LB Clay Matthews not far behind) so they should be fine without him.

While the return of Sherrod helps at practice while RG T.J. Lang is recovering from a concussion, his return to the 53-man roster was more about timing because he's been practicing for the past three weeks. They had to take him off the PUP list or place him on season ending I.R. He doesn't appear to be ready, he's been practicing but no padded work, so he should be inactive for next week's game.

Hey Brandon, do you think it's possible Tolzein and Wallace could just split time at QB instead of Wallace playing all the time?
