GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers' plan to get Brett Hundley a lengthy stint at quarterback didn't last as long as they'd hoped. Hundley, who started in place of a resting Aaron Rodgers, left Thursday's 20-12 preseason win over the Oakland Raiders early in the second quarter because of an ankle injury.
Packers physician Dr. Pat McKenzie could be seen looking at Hundley's left ankle, the same one that kept him out of practice for nearly two weeks earlier in training camp.
Hundley would not have been able to play in the Hall of Fame Game had it not been canceled, and he did not suit up for last week's preseason game against the Cleveland Browns.
McCarthy said after Thursday's game that Hundley was "doing good."
"He reinjured the ankle, same injury as the first time, but they don't think it's as bad as the original," McCarthy said. "Don't have a timeline, and we'll see how he is in the morning."
Before his injury Thursday, Hundley directed an early touchdown drive that used more than half of the clock in the first quarter. He finished 5-of-7 for 67 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions.
Hundley, a fifth-round pick in 2015, was the Packers' third-string quarterback last season but never played a snap. He moved up to No. 2 after Scott Tolzien signed with the Indianapolis Colts in free agency this offseason. Last summer, Hundley led the NFL in preseason passing yards (690) and threw for seven touchdowns and just one interception.
