The Green Bay Packers' quarterback problems just got worse. With Aaron Rodgers out, Seneca Wallace got the start — but he didn't last long.

Wallace appeared to injure his groin with about five minutes left in the first quarter after completing a pass to Andrew Quarless before a Packers punt.

When they came back on offense, Scott Tolzien — who had just been elevated from the practice squad this week — replaced Wallace in what became his official NFL debut.

Wallace completed his first five pass attempts for 25 yards before leaving.

Tolzien was able to finish the game for the Packers, and did so in respectable fashion all things considered. The former University of Wisconsin QB was 24-of-39 for 280 yards and one passing touchdown. But he also threw two interceptions in a 27-13 loss to the Eagles.

Depending on the severity of Wallace's injury, the Packers may be forced to pick up another quarterback. Head coach Mike McCarthy said after the game that Tolzien will start Green Bay's Week 11 game against the New York Giants.
