Impending free agent QB Seneca Wallace underwent a procedure to repair his abductor tendon.
Wallace was placed on injured reserve back in early November, clearing the way for the Packers to sign Matt Flynn. He wants to play in 2014, but interest figures to be scant at best. Wallace turns 34 in August and was brutal in his brief relief of Aaron Rodgers. Mon, Jan 6, 2014 11:12:00 AM

Packers placed QB Seneca Wallace on injured reserve with a groin injury, ending his season.

Groin injuries are rarely season ending, so it's possible Wallace will eventually be released with an injury settlement. The move clears a roster spot for Matt Flynn. Now finished with his age-33 campaign, Wallace heads into the offseason with just 24 pass attempts over the past two seasons. He should get a chance to crack someone's roster next summer, but is near the end of his career.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Seneca Wallace (groin) is expected to be placed on injured reserve.

Wallace suffered the groin injury in the first quarter of Sunday's loss and will likely be shut down for the season. With Aaron Rodgers (week to week, collarbone) sidelined, Scott Tolzien will start in Week 11. The Packers brought back Matt Flynn on Monday to handle backup duties. John Skelton could also be signed as a third quarterback.

It's unclear if Seneca Wallace (groin) will be healthy enough to serve as Scott Tolzien's backup in Week 11.

The Wallace era in Green Bay lasted one quarter. That's when he pulled his groin and Tolzien played well enough to earn a start. Even if cleared, Wallace can be dropped across the board.

Seneca Wallace left Sunday's game against the Eagles in the first quarter with a groin injury and is questionable to return.

Wallace was hurt on an innocent play near the sideline during which he was merely trying to throw the ball away. It's left the Packers with only practice squad callup Scott Tolzien at quarterback. Wallace was 5-of-5 for 25 yards before leaving. Aaron Rodgers (week to week, collarbone) can't get back soon enough.

Coach Mike McCarthy suggested a lack of practice time contributed to Seneca Wallace's poor relief performance Monday night.

Despite stacked boxes designed to stop Eddie Lacy, Wallace went 11-of-19 for 114 yards with no touchdowns and one interception. In fairness, he didn't even spend training camp with the Packers and has barely gotten any reps since signing just before Week 1. "Seneca, he needs to perform better and he'll definitely do that with a week of practice," said McCarthy. We wouldn't brush Wallace off as a QB2 candidate if he does start in Week 10. The Packers get to face the Eagles at home and this scheme once made Matt Flynn look like Dan Marino. Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) is tentatively expected to miss three weeks.

Coming on in place of an injured Aaron Rodgers (left non-throwing shoulder) in the first quarter, Seneca Wallace completed 11-of-19 passes for 114 yards and one interception in the Week 9 loss to the Bears.

Wallace hadn't taken a regular-season snap since appearing in six games with the Browns in 2011 before he was summoned to replace Rodgers on Green Bay's second possession. He handed the ball off to James Starks for a 32-yard touchdown on his first snap. It went downhill from there. Wallace short-hopped a couple of his receivers and took four sacks, two of which came on the final drive that killed any hope of a potential comeback. It's unknown how long Rodgers will be out, but the Packers are in serious trouble if Wallace has to start another game. Green Bay will take on the Eagles in six days.

Packers signed QB Seneca Wallace.

Wallace was just released by the 49ers -- the Packers' Week 1 opponent -- on Thursday. He immediately slides in as Aaron Rodgers' direct backup as Green Bay has released both Vince Young and B.J. Coleman in the last few days. Wallace, 33, hasn't appeared in an NFL game since 2011 with the Browns. Current Packers GM Ted Thompson drafted Wallace to the Seahawks in the fourth round of the 2003 draft.

The player rep for free agent QB Seneca Wallace now insists his client is not retiring.

Coach Jim Harbaugh had been informed otherwise, before the 49ers cut Wallace on Thursday. "My understanding is that Seneca will continue his football career but that there was a discussion about his situation particularly with the 49ers," said agent Don Yee. Wallace turned 33 earlier this month.

Seneca Wallace is retiring from football.

It was apparently Wallace's call not to suit up in Thursday's preseason finale. "He felt strongly about it," coach Jim Harbaugh said. "I don't talk people out of that. I've never seen it done on game day, but I wish him well." A 2003 fourth-rounder, Wallace hangs it up with a career 81.3 QB rating, 59.2 completion percentage and 31:18 TD:INT ratio through 764 passes. Wallace hasn't played since 2011.

49ers will release QB Seneca Wallace.

The Niners did Wallace a solid by not playing him in the preseason finale and risking injury. So he'll have a chance to catch on elsewhere, most likely after Week 1. San Francisco already waived Scott Tolzien and will enter the season with Colt McCoy and rookie B.J. Daniels behind starter Colin Kaepernick.

49ers signed QB Seneca Wallace, formerly of the Saints.

Wallace, 33, was cut by the Saints Monday and immediately drew interest from the Niners. Colt McCoy and Scott Tolzien have struggled throughout the preseason, combining for three interceptions and zero touchdowns. Rookie B.J. Daniels is the other signal caller on the roster behind Colin Kaepernick, but he's nowhere close to being ready. Wallace is no lock to make the roster.
Thu, Aug 22, 2013 02:12:00 PM

CSN Bay Area reports the 49ers are interested in free agent Seneca Wallace, and have arranged a visit.

The 49ers haven't been happy with Colt McCoy and Scott Tolzien's play behind Colin Kaepernick, going as far as to increase passing-challenged rookie B.J. Daniels' reps. In theory, Wallace would be a nice addition, but was struggling for the Saints before being released. He was out of the league last season.

Saints released QB Seneca Wallace.

The Saints are going with Luke McCown as Drew Brees' backup. Out of the league last season, Wallace was 3-of-6 for 32 yards and an interception this preseason. He also lost a fumble and took two sacks. The 33-year-old's career is on borrowed time.
Mon, Aug 19, 2013 12:14:00 PM

Seneca Wallace and Luke McCown are sharing second-team reps equally at Saints camp.

It's McCown's second straight training camp with the Saints, so he's tentatively considered the slight favorite. Wallace was out of the NFL last season and is currently nursing a minor groin injury. Drew Brees has missed one game since joining New Orleans in 2006.
