According to Bill Huber of Packer Report:
#Packers have signed Scott Tolzien to the roster, according to source.
— Packer Report (@PackerReport) November 6, 2013
There were similar reports from Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network and others on Tuesday, but the Packers announced no moves.
The Packers placed Jermichael Finley and Sam Barrington on injured reserve while activating Derek Sherrod from the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list, leaving one roster spot open.
Reports that the Packers would sign Matt Flynn don't appear to be coming fruition.
"Barring another transaction – there seems to be nothing brewing with Matt Flynn – Tolzien will be Seneca Wallace’s backup on Sunday against Philadelphia," writes Huber.
Tolzien would appear to be the Packers' backup for a long as Rodgers remains out. There's no definitive timeline for return for Rodgers, but he's liable to miss a month or more.
A spot will open up on the team's practice squad with Tolzien's promotion.
The Packers reportedly worked out linebacker Jarvis Reed this week, but there's been no word if he'll fill the open spot on the practice squad. Reed was in training camp with the Packers earlier this season.
