Packers bench RT Moll, shuffle O-line for Finale

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers are benching right tackle Tony Moll and reshuffling their offensive line for Sunday's regular-season finale against Detroit.

The Packers won't make the playoffs but want to go out with a victory over the Lions, who are winless in 15 games this season.

Moll is a third-year player who took over at right tackle after veteran Mark Tauscher sustained a season-ending knee injury in the December 7th loss to Houston.

For the Detroit game, Moll won't be starting and three other players will be shuffled.

Daryn Colledge will move from left guard to the right tackle spot, Jason Spitz will move from right guard to left guard and rookie Josh Sitton will enter the lineup at right guard.

Coach Mike McCarthy says he wants to establish more stability and avoid the many changes that have been made in the line this season. He also says Moll wasn't as sharp as the coaches wanted, so they're making the changes that also will give Sitton a chance to start.
