Since arriving in Green Bay, Christine Michael hasn’t had much to do except for read up on the playbook.
The recently acquired running back looks as if he’ll finally get a chance to get a few carries on Monday night when the Packers visit the Philadelphia Eagles .
For the first time in weeks, Green Bay might have two experienced running backs on the roster in Michael and James Starks.
Establishing the run might help the Packers get off to the more productive starts that have eluded them the past two games.
“They’re teaching me the game plan … and getting me ready to go,” said Michael, who was claimed off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks last week. “Getting me in the game plan this week, a couple runs here, play action. Keeping it simple, but definitely trying to get my feet wet out there.”
Losers of four straight, the Packers (4-6) have at least been able to get the passing game going the past few weeks.
