With nose tackle B.J. Raji out for the season with a torn bicep suffered in the third preseason game against the Raiders, the Packers will now turn to veteran tackle Letroy Guion.
Guion was drafted out of Florida State in the fifth round of the 2008 draft by the Minnesota Vikings. He played in 66 games for the VIkings, but has relatively little experience with the Packers, having only come off the PUP list one week ago.
Despite this lack of experience, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting that Guion will get the start Thursday night in Seattle.
"Letroy has a lot of experience," Trgovac said. "I thought he's done a good job. That's not a new position for him. There really isn't a lot of change from what they did at Minnesota to what we do.
"Terminology is different, but it's not like you're putting a first- or second-year guy in there. That helps. And he's had some good quality practice days behind him. It's been two weeks."
