Aaron Rodgers is still recovering from a fractured collarbone. After Seneca Wallace went down with an injury, Scott Tolzien got his chance to start for the Packers. However, on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, Green Bay turned to an old friend, Matt Flynn. Flynn replaced Tolzien and will get the start for the Packers against the Lions. This is the opportunity Flynn's been waiting for.
Here are the other big news items from Wednesday.
The Steelers will likely be without linebacker Lamarr Woodley in Week 13 as he continues to recover from a calf injury. After a slow start, Pittsburgh is in the thick of the playoff picture in the AFC with a 5-6 record. The Steelers take on the Ravens on Thanksgiving, so Woodley being listed as doubtful is a big blow.
Get ready for Chad Henne vs. Brandon Weeden on Sunday. When the Cleveland Browns take on the Jacksonville Jaguars, Weeden will be starting for the Browns, according to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal. Weeden has already been benched twice this season but returns to the lineup after Jason Campbell suffered a concussion in Week 12. Weeden will be looking to avoid his fifth loss of the season.
The National Congress of American Indians is calling for the Redskins to change their name. The group released a YouTube video on Wednesday that outlines its stance and expresses its desire for Daniel Snyder and the Redskins to change the team's nickname. This discussion isn't going away anytime soon, despite Snyder's insistence that the team keep its name.
