Packers put Tolzien on active roster

CREATED Nov. 5, 2013 - UPDATED: Nov. 6, 2013

The Packers have moved up a third-string practice squad quarterback to the active roster, as first reported to a report from our own Lance Allan.

The Packers also moved a training camp player, Alex Gillett, to the practice squad.

Tolzien was named the Packers' 3rd-stringer when the team picked Seneca Wallace as the backup QB behind Aaron Rodgers.

Rodgers was injured in the Packers' 27-20 loss to the Chicago Bears.

Tolzien led the Wisconsin Badgers to the Rose Bowl in his senior season in 2010.
