Lost amongst the Favre brew ha-ha, (and really, what football info hasn't been?) is the fact that starting center Scott Wells has been out with an injured 'trunk'. (Don't ask) While no one thinks it's serious, he's been out a good couple days now and it is definitely something to watch.
The good news is that Wells absence has allowed rookie Josh Sitton a chance to shine with Jason Spitz moving over to center while Wells is out. (Remember, Spitz was drafted as a center) Watching Sitton during Family Night, I can tell you the kid has the one thing the Packers' offensive line has lacked since McCarthy installed his zone-blocking scheme. To put it simply, Sitton's got a bit of nasty to him. The guy keeps blocking up until (and possibly just after) the whistle blows. And for a team that was the worst in the league on third and short, he's a welcome addition.
Now word comes that McCarthty has indicated that Sitton is being given a chance to win the right guard spot, indicating that Spitz could move to left guard if Sitton was inserted on the right after Wells' return. Anything that sends Colledge to the bench is fine with me...
