Matt Flynn set to work out for the Packers Monday


GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- Both and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel are reporting Matt Flynn will work out for the Packers on Monday, the day after Green Bay lost 27-13 to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Former Wisconsin Badger Scott Tolzien finished the game at quarterback for the Packers after Senaca Wallace went out with a groin injury in the first quarter. Packers coach Mike McCarthy already named Tolzien the starter for the next game. Wallace was starting in place of Aaron Rodgers, who suffered a broken collar bone in the previous week's loss to the Chicago Bears and is expected to miss at least three weeks.

Some have expressed concerns about Flynn's elbow issues the past two years, and NFL Media is reporting a Flynn signing would be a signal the team will move Wallace to the injured reserve list.

Flynn was cut by both the Raiders and the Bills this season after failing to win the starting quarterback job in Seattle last season. But Flynn had success in two previous fill-in starts for the Packers under McCarthy.
