The Seneca Wallace era in Green Bay didn't last long.
Wallace was placed on season-ending injured reserve on Tuesday when the Packers made the signing of Matt Flynn official.
In parts of two games, Wallace completed 16 of 24 passes for 139 yards with zero touchdowns and one interception.
Wallace's salary for the rest of the season will be cut in half after agreeing to a split contract upon signing with the Packers. He'll be a free agent at season's end.
Head coach Mike McCarthy has already committed to Scott Tolzien as the team's starter Week 11 at the New York Giants, but Flynn becomes the immediate backup.
With his familiarity with the system, Flynn shouldn't encounter much of a learning curve, but his elbow issues do stand as a bigger problem.
During his time with the Packers, Flynn completed 82 of 132 passes (62.1 percent) for 1,015 yards and nine TDs with five INTs for a 92.8 passer rating. He played for Seattle in 2012 and spent time with Oakland and Buffalo this season.
Wide receiver Chris Harper has allowed Flynn to wear his old No. 10 jersey, while Harper will now wear No. 13.
