Packers | Turn To the Backup To A Backup

The Associated Press reports after Green Bay Packers starting S LeRoy Butler broke his shoulder today, he was replaced by backup S Chris Akins. Akins was benched early in the fourth quarter when he committed a 15-yard personal foul on a drive that led to Atlanta's decisive touchdown. Akins was upset as he was pulled from the game and he got into an animated discussion with coach Mike Sherman on the sidelines. "He was still emotional from the play that just occurred, I'm sure," said Sherman. Sherman said he benched Akins for slamming his helmet. Akins was replaced by rookie S Bhawoh Jue. After the game Akins was contrite for his actions.
