Harrell replaces Rodgers in second quarter

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on August 23, 2013 – 8:33 pm

GREEN BAY–Aaron Rodgers only got a quarter of work on Friday night, as he was replaced by Graham Harrell at the start of the second quarter of a game that remained tied at halftime, 3-3.

Harrell’s earlier-than-expected entrance into the game promised a longer-than-expected drama in the competition for the backup quarterback job. Vince Young is expected to replace Harrell at quarterback.

Packers second-year wide receiver Jarrett Boykin fumbled following a reception midway through the second quarter, and Seattle recovered at its 47-yard line. Three plays later, however, linebacker Nick Perry tipped a Russell Wilson pass into the air and cornerback Casey Hayward made the interception near midfield.

A pass interference penalty against Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman on a Harrell deep pass for James Jones put the Packers at the Seattle 26-yard line. On third and 10, Harrell completed a pass to Boykin, who broke a tackle and gained 14 yards for a first down at the Seattle 12-yard line.

On fourth and two from the 4, tight end Jermichael Finley was originally ruled to have made a diving, finger-tip catch in the end zone, but replay review reversed the call, as the ball was seen to have gone through Finley’s hands and touch the ground.

Harrell was five of 12 for 47 yards. Rodgers completed four of seven passes for 41 yards. The Packers running game was nonexistent in the first half, as they rushed for only 15 yards.

Wilson played the entire first half and completed 10 of 15 passes for 110 yards, but most of Wilson’s completions were of the dink and dunk variety. He was intercepted twice; safety Jerron McMillian joined Hayward in the interception category.

The second quarter included brief skirmishes and a couple of taunting penalties, but no scoring.
