Bryan Bulaga among Packers inactive in Week 2


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) The Packers will be without offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga (knee) Sunday, as the starter is inactive for the Week 2 matchup with the Jets.

Bulaga sprained his MCL in the season opener and was questionable to play in Week 2. His absence means Derek Sherrod will start at right tackle for the Packers. The team's other inactives include quarterback Scott Tolzein, cornerback Demetri Goodson, wide receiver Jeff Janis and linebackers Brad Jones, Carl Bradford and Jay Elliott.


Packers inactives Week 1


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) The Packers have listed QB Scott Tolzien, CB Demetri Goodson, LB Carl Bradford, DT Mike Pennel, WR Jeff Janis, TE Brandon Bostick and LB Jay Elliott as inactive Week 1 against the Seahawks.

Both Bostick and Goodson had been ruled out earlier in the week. Linebacker Brad Jones, who was probably heading into the game, is active.


Matt Flynn no lock to hold off Scott Tolzien


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Matt Flynn is the Packers' backup quarterback as of now, but Scott Tolzien could overtake him by the end of August, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. The paper called Tolzien "the younger arm with the higher ceiling."

Packers due to draft a quarterback


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) The Packers couldn't win without Aaron Rodgers last season, so now they're determined to find a promising quarterback in the draft, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Green Bay has drafted only one quarterback, 2012 seventh-rounder B.J. Coleman, in the past five years.

The paper noted Matt Flynn is an impending free agent and Scott Tolzien may or may not be the answer as Green Bay's backup quarterback.

"I think we definitely need four, so I'm hopeful that we can get a young guy in the draft," coach Mike McCarthy told the paper. "That's something we're looking at and maybe taking even a harder look this year — well, that's not true, we've always taken a hard look.

"That's something that we're focused on."


Packers declare playoff inactives


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) The Packers listed linebackers Clay Matthews (thumb) and Nate Palmer, wideout Chris Harper, quarterback Scott Tolzien, cornerback Jumal Rolle, and offensive linemen Ryan Taylor and JC Tretter as inactive for the playoff game vs. the 49ers.

Packers coach still not ready to name Week 13 starter


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2013) While Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) went through individual drills Tuesday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said it remains unlikely Rodgers will play Thursday at Detroit (Week 13). Matt Flynn worked with the first-team offense Tuesday, but McCarthy didn't name him the starter and said the team is also preparing Scott Tolzien for Week 13.

"Matt Flynn took the starter reps today. That's where we are. Still want to make sure both quarterbacks are ready," McCarthy said.


Packers coach holding off naming Week 13 starting QB


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2013) Packers coach Mike McCarthy indicated Monday he doesn't expect Aaron Rodgers to be back in the lineup Thursday at Detroit, but he wouldn't name a starting quarterback for Week 13. McCarthy said the team will prepare both Scott Tolzien and Matt Flynn for Thursday's game.

Flynn came off the bench Sunday against Minnesota in the third quarter to replace an ineffective Tolzien, who made a second straight start. Flynn rallied Green Bay to a 26-all tie. McCarthy said Flynn "played very well and deserves to start," but said he will prepare both quarterbacks.


Scott Tolzien benched in second half vs. Vikings


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Packers quarterback Scott Tolzien was benched in the second half of Sunday's game against the Vikings. Tolzien led one offensive drive in the third quarter Week 12 before being replaced by Matt Flynn, with Green Bay trailing 20-7.

Tolzien got off to a promising start, as his 6-yard touchdown run on the team's second drive in the first quarter put Green Bay ahead 7-0. Tolzien showed some nice athleticism on the play. After rolling to the right, Tolzien cut back to the middle of the field, spun away from a tackler and dove into the end zone for the score.

Unfortunately, it went downhill for Tolzien from there. He was pulled after completing just 7 of 17 passes for 98 yards. He rushed for 25 yards on two carries. The Packers are back in action on Thanksgiving at Detroit.


Scott Tolzien will have more freedom to adjust plays


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2013) Packers quarterback Scott Tolzien, who will be making his second straight start Week 12 vs. Minnesota, said he will have more freedom to adjust plays at the line of scrimmage Sunday than he did during a Week 11 loss at N.Y. Giants.

"I think primary is to let the offense come to you. Usually good things happen when you let that game plan take care of itself," he said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "All I can control is what the game plan (allows), whether it's getting us in the right runs or advantageous passes, I think. I'm not going to try to do too much, just try to let the game plan and my preparation try to take care of that."


Scott Tolzien should be much better in second start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/19/2013) Packers quarterback Scott Tolzien is gearing up for his second career start Week 12 vs. Minnesota, looking for better results after his first career start didn't go so well. Tolzien tossed three interceptions in a 27-13 loss Week 11 at N.Y. Giants, despite completing 70.6 percent of his passes (24 of 34) for 339 yards.

The chances of Tolzien having a strong performance for Fantasy owners Week 12 isn't as bad as you would think. Quarterbacks are averaging 23.8 Fantasy points per week against Minnesota, which is the second-highest average. Quarterbacks also average 293.4 passing yards against the Vikings.

As far as passing touchdowns are concerned, there have been plenty against Minnesota. Quarterbacks have thrown 22 passing touchdowns to just eight interceptions in 10 games. Seven quarterbacks have thrown for multiple touchdowns, which included Aaron Rodgers, who Tolzien is replacing again Sunday. Rodgers, who is nursing a collarbone injury, threw for 285 yards and two touchdowns during a 44-31 win Week 8 at Minnesota.

Tolzien might have made some key mistakes Week 11, but he still had a high completion rate and threw for a lot of yards against a New York defense that has had a strong turnaround as of late. The Vikings will be a much easier challenge for Tolzien, who could serve as a sleeper Fantasy start for Week 12.


Scott Tolzien will start again Week 12


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/18/2013) Packers coach Mike McCarthy said quarterback Scott Tolzien will make a second straight start Week 12 vs. Minnesota, ending speculation Monday quarterback Aaron Rodgers is ready to return from a collarbone injury.

Scott Tolzien picked off three times in Week 11 loss


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Packers quarterback Scott Tolzien did his best to manage the game against the Giants, but it wasn't enough carving up 300-plus yards in his first career start in Week 11.

Tolzien was picked off by Jon Beason in the opening drive of the second half and then again by Jason Pierre-Paul in the fourth quarter, who took it back for a touchdown. Antrel Rolle picked him off with under two minutes remaining in the game to seal the deal.

Tolzien completed 24 of 34 passes for 339 yards with no touchdowns and three interceptions. He averaged 10.0 yards per pass attempt and finished the game with a 65.7 passer rating in a 27-13 defeat.

Tolzien has completed 48 of 73 passes for 669 yards with one touchdown and five interceptions through two games played. He'll look to get back on track in Week 12 at home against the Vikings.

Don't count on Scott Tolzien for Week 11


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2013) Packers quarterback Scott Tolzien was thrown into the fire and will make his first career start Sunday against the Giants. So what can Fantasy owners expect from him in Week 11?

Tolzien made a relief appearance for an injured Seneca Wallace against the Eagles and looked as comfortable as a practice-squad quarterback has ever looked, as he completed 24 of 39 passes for 280 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in Week 10. He'll face a New York defense that has allowed 226.9 passing yards per game, which is the 11th fewest allowed this season. The Giants allowed only 122 passing yards against Terrelle Pryor and the Raiders last week.

Even after his performance last week, Tolzien is owned in only five percent of CBSSports.com Fantasy leagues, and for a reason. We're not ready to trust Tolzien after one game. Consider him a low-end option in only deeper Fantasy formats for Week 11.

Report: Matt Flynn will back up Scott Tolzien


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2013) The Packers signed Matt Flynn to back up Scott Tolzien, not start, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Green Bay is preparing to visit the Giants on Sunday.

Scott Tolzien steps up for injured Seneca Wallace


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Packers quarterback Scott Tolzien, who was recently brought up from the practice squad, came in for an injured Seneca Wallace and turned in a decent performance in Week 10 against the Eagles.

Tolzien was picked off in the end zone by Brandon Boykin in the second quarter and again by DeMeco Ryan in the third quarter. He bounced back with his first career touchdown pass , as he took advantage of the defense on a pump fake and found rookie tight end Brandon Bostick for a 22-yard score in the third quarter.

Tolzien completed 24 of 39 passes for 280 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in a 27-13 defeat. He finished the game with a 70.5 passer rating.

Head coach Mike McCarthy said after the game that Tolzien will make his first NFL start against the Giants in Week 11. The Giants limited Terrelle Pryor to 122 passing yards and an interception in Week 10.

Colt McCoy still No. 2 quarterback


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2013) 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said Colt McCoy will be the No. 2 quarterback Sunday against the Vikings. Scott Tolzien and B.J. Daniels will enter after McCoy, but Harbaugh did not say in what order.

B.J. Daniels gaining in 49ers' backup quarterback battle


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2013) 49ers rookie quarterback B.J. Daniels will get more practice reps this week after his "encouraging performance" Friday against Kansas City, coach Jim Harbaugh said. Daniels' reps will be in line with those of Colt McCoy and Scott Tolzien, according to the Sacramento Bee.

All are vying to back up Colin Kaepernick.

"It was an encouraging performance, and he's done some encouraging things in practice as well," Harbaugh said of Daniels, who hit 6 of 9 throws for 72 yards and a touchdown. "So he continues on his process and he competed well and made plays. As far as it stands for him, it was encouraging. And when somebody does a good job you give them a little more."

McCoy tossed an interception, and Tolzien threw two passes that should have been picked off.


49ers claim rookie QB Tolzien


(9/4/2011) Rookie QB Scott Tolzien, who the 49ers claimed off waivers from the Chargers Sunday, was signed as an undrafted rookie out of Wisconsin. He completed 72.9 percent of his passes last season for the Badgers, a single-season record, and also holds school records in career completion percentage (68.1) and single-season completions (211 in 2009).

(9/3/2011) Notable cuts by the Chargers on Saturday include: LB Kevin Bentley, DB Quinton Teal, LB Bront Bird, DE Mike Blanc, RB Curtis Brinkley, CB Ramon Broadway, DE Charlie Bryant, TE Charles Davis, DE Carl Ihenacho, DE Ogemdi Nwagbuo, RB Isaac Odim, RB Dean Rogers, CB Traye Simmons, FB Frank Summers, TE Brad Taylor, QB Scott Tolzien and LB Kion Wilson.
