GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Atari Bigby is getting the starting nod at safety for the Green Bay Packers in Thursday night's preseason game.

But coach Mike McCarthy says that doesn't necessarily mean Bigby has won the starting job over Marquand Manuel.

McCarthy said repetitions will be more important than who the starter is.

But Manuel's job with the Packers could be on the line.

If Bigby takes the starting position, the Packers have several young safeties they may want to keep on the roster instead of Manuel.
