Packers Bench C Jeff Saturday, Evan Dietrich-Smith Moves Into Starting Lineup
Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy told reporters Friday he has benched five-time Pro Bowler Jeff Saturday.
Saturday signed as a free agent with the Packers in March after Scott Wells signed with the St. Louis Rams. He started all 14 games at center this season.
Saturday was asked to evaluate himself.
"I've graded out well," said Saturday, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "You win 10 games, you win the division. So I've got no complaints with that."
The versatile Evan Dietrich-Smith moves into the starting lineup against the Tennessee Titans with Saturday's demotion.

No, but maybe he's just too old, to play a full season. He was limited in practice this week too, due to neck and shoulder injuries. Maybe this was another reason, to start Dietrich-Smith over him.
