Fri, 09 Aug 2013 20:25:02 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Vince Young, who just signed Tuesday, Aug. 6, made his team debut in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 9, against the Arizona Cardinals. Young completed one of his three pass attempts for seven yards, and he had two runs for 12 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Young might get a chance to supplant Graham Harrell as the primary backup to Aaron Rodgers, but for now one has to think the battle is between Young and B.J. Coleman just for a spot on the 53-man roster. No fantasy value here.
