Matt Flynn to start Thursday

Packers make it official, rule Aaron Rodgers out. Aaron Wilson

Packers quarterback Matt Flynn will get the start Thursday against the Lions, the team announced Wedneday.

Starter Aaron Rodgers, who has a broken collarbone, will miss his fourth straight start. Flynn, who started a game for Oakland earlier this year and is now back where he was before leaving for Seattle via free agency last year, led the Packers back from a deficit last week to ultimately tie the Vikings 26-26 at the end of overtime.

Funny enough, the last time Flynn, as a Packer in 2011, faced the Lions, he torched them for 480 yards and six touchdowns.

Scott Tolzien will serve as Flynn's backup.
