The Green Bay Packers are showing interest in Tim Couch and Eric Crouch. Yesterday, Cleveland granted the Packers permission to talk with Couch, a quarterback whose 5-year stint with the Browns effectively ended earlier this month when the club signed free-agent quarterback Jeff Garcia. Green Bay could be looking for Couch to be a backup and potential successor to Brett Favre, who is nearing the end of his career. The Packers' current backup is journeyman Doug Pederson. Crouch, the 2001 Heisman Trophy winner who twice previously bolted NFL training camps and seemed to be retired, has been reinstated by Green Bay from the "reserve/retired" list, according to ESPN.

There may be two games on Monday night, but there is only one Monday Night Football. Because of last night's World Series game in Miami, the Chicago Bears at Miami Dolphins game was switched to tonight. But the only game on the tube is Green Bay at New England (Channel 6, 9 p.m.) in a rematch of last season's Super Bowl. The Packers (5-2), who have had trouble stopping the run, should get a big boost in that area from 350-pound nose tackle Gilbert Brown, who is returning from a knee injury.

The Green Bay Packers yesterday traded Brent Fullwood to the Cleveland Browns for a draft choice, saying the fullback did not fit into the club's system. Fullwood missed the second half of Sunday's 27-13 loss to Chicago after carrying twice for minus-3 yards in the first half. Fullwood said he was too ill to continue playing and did not come out of the locker room for the second half. Fullwood led the Packers in rushing last year with 821 yards. He had 124 yards in five games this year.

THE GREEN BAY Packers have raised $67 million the last 6 weeks by selling shares of stock for $250 apiece. When the Packers decided to upgrade Lambeau Field - a $143 million effort to add 6,700 additional seats, high-definition video screens and a new entrance by next year - they resolved not to ask for a single taxpayer dime. Instead, they reverted back to the same strategy that has helped keep the Packers afloat several times in team history - a stock sale. The latest offering wrapped up Wednesday.

The Green Bay Packers are interested in signing troubled running back Lawrence Phillips as a backup to Dorsey Levens, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. Last week, Phillips rushed for 177 yards and spurred the greatest comeback in NFL Europe history by leading the Barcelona Dragons to a 42-35 victory over Scotland after they trailed, 28-3. The winning touchdown was a 73-yard romp by Phillips. The former Nebraska running back, who also played in St. Louis and Miami before being waived by both teams, already has set NFL Europe season records in rushing yards and touchdowns.

Green Bay had Tampa Bay's once-vaunted defense on the verge of collapse, so coach Mike Sherman was determined to finish it off. Facing fourth-and-1 from the Buccaneers' 16 in a tie game, the Packers sent Najeh Davenport barreling up the middle for 5 yards instead of going for a go-ahead field goal. Three plays later, Ahman Green scored from the 1 to finish a 98-yard march that gave the Packers a 20-13 victory yesterday. "It was such a beautiful drive, I just hated to let it go to a kicker.

The outlook for injured Green Bay cornerback Al Harris is encouraging. The former Eagle hurt his spleen in Sunday's game against Dallas and won't play in tomorrow's game against Tampa Bay. Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Harris would be out for "at least three to four weeks. " However, it is no longer feared the Pro Bowler would be lost for the season or his playing career is in jeopardy. McCarthy said Harris' spleen doesn't need removal and would be allowed to heal on its own. Giants.

THE LAST TIME Allen Barbre got an extended NFL starting opportunity, it didn't go very well. This was 2009, his third season with the Packers. Mark Tauscher, the team's longtime starting right tackle, had torn the ACL in his left knee the previous season and wasn't re-signed. Barbre, who had been selected by the Packers in the fourth round of the '07 draft, was named his replacement and started the first seven games of the '09 season. He wasn't awful, but he wasn't good either.

Will Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers play Sunday? Let's look at the clues and see what we can deduce. Rodgers, appearing recovered from his broken left collarbone, practiced Thursday and looked OK. So maybe he'll play. But though he did a little stretching and looked sharp in position drills, he watched as backup Matt Flynn, who took the majority of the reps on the day, led the offense during another short practice period. Uh, oh. However, coach Mike McCarthy said he thought Rodgers looked "ready to play" and said he would name his starter on Friday, which might mean Rodgers has a shot.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - With one tiny word, Fletcher Cox may have spoken for everyone inside the Eagles locker room. Cox, the Eagles' mammoth defensive end, had just helped his team cruise past Green Bay, 27-13, Sunday afternoon. He was asked about Packers quarterback Scott Tolzien, the man his team had vanquished. "Who?" Cox said. Who is right. Tolzien entered the game having thrown zero - that's right, zero - NFL passes. Heck, Tolzien had been active just three times in his three-year career, and in each of those, he never put down the clipboard.

GREEN BAY - When Eagles backup Najee Goode heard the words from his position coach he didn't imagine it would be he who would put them into practice. Rick Minter last week stressed to his inside linebackers that the fates of football blessed the Eagles with a precious advantage: The Packers' best player would not play. Good NFL teams thin the herd of contenders by eliminating the weakened. Without quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the Packers are weakened more than any other team in the league.

CASEY MATTHEWS thinks his brother is playing this week, he said yesterday. Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy would venture only that Clay Matthews "went through the normal reps" in yesterday's practice, when McCarthy spoke with Philadelphia-area reporters in an evening conference call. "We'll see how the week goes," McCarthy said. Told of Casey's opinion, McCarthy said: "That's pretty good information. " Clay Matthews, the Packers' four-time Pro Bowl linebacker, one of the NFL's most recognizable stars, broke his right thumb Oct. 6 against the Lions and underwent surgery.

THE EAGLES' DEFENSE has been thrown at more than any defense in the NFL this season, 45 times per game, yet the team is in the bottom third of the league in sacks. It remains their most significant issue on that side of the ball. Tackling is a thousand percent improved over the last few years. The big passing plays have been minimized - opponents have completed only four passes of more than 40 yards. The run defense has been consistent and solid, again affected by the improved tackling.

This is a rare chance for the Eagles to win a game everyone circled as a loss on the schedule going into the season. But the Packers still have the better team, they just might not have the better quarterback, with Aaron Rodgers out. That's assuming the Eagles are led by Oakland or Tampa Nick Foles, and not Dallas Nick Foles. Mike McCarthy is a smart coach who is capable of crafting a game plan that will allow journeyman Seneca Wallace to succeed. McCarthy faced a similar situation 3 years ago after a Rodgers injury; the Pack looked dreadful the rest of that game, losing, 7-3, to the Lions, but backup Matt Flynn was a different guy with a week to prepare, throwing for three touchdowns in the next game, a 31-27 loss to the Patriots.

SOMETIMES LIFE hands you lemons and you try to make lemonade. Other times, it's a bowl of cherries. Sunday should be a jubilee. The Eagles, reconstituted and rearranged from top to bottom, entered this season looking at a few sure-fire losses. At Denver, for sure. At Green Bay, almost certainly. Then, on Monday night, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers left the first quarter against Chicago with a fractured left collarbone. It could cost him a month. Suddenly, the can't-win in Green Bay became a must-win.

When the NFL schedule was released in April, the first thing Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis checked was the number of top quarterbacks the Eagles would face. At that point, he knew Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers loomed on Nov. 10. Now that the Eagles are preparing for the Packers, Davis no longer is game-planning for Rodgers. The Packers' Pro Bowl quarterback is expected to miss Sunday's game at Lambeau Field with a fractured left collarbone. Coach Mike McCarthy said the Packers were preparing veteran Seneca Wallace to start.
