Harrell Cut, Young Looking Like Backup

Vintage Vince Young resurfaced for one entertaining series at Lambeau Field.

The seven-year NFL veteran looked as if was scrambling around for the Texas Longhorns again, running for first downs and extending plays.

He's hoping it will help earn him a green-and-gold jersey with the Green Bay Packers. Young made a strong bid for the backup quarterback job behind Aaron Rodgers with an impressive outing in limited time during the 17-10 preseason loss Friday to the Seattle Seahawks.

Young was 6 of 7 for 41 yards and a 1-yard touchdown pass to tie the game in the third quarter. He also ran for 39 yards.

Coach Mike McCarthy says Young is getting more comfortable after being signed about a week into training camp.
