No QB decision

Coach Brad Childress still hasn't named a starting quarterback for Sunday's game at Green Bay, saying it will be a game-time decision between Brooks Bollinger and Tarvaris Jackson.

Bollinger is expected to get the nod, with Jackson still recovering from the concussion he suffered last week, but if the quarterbacks know who's starting, neither was saying.

"It's no fun for me," Bollinger said of the weekly guessing game, "but it is what it is."

Childress said quarterback Kelly Holcomb's neck injury has improved but that just-signed Koy Detmer "very well could play if need be."

Childress said the team could end up making a roster move at quarterback before the day is out but didn't elaborate.

Holcomb said his neck is good enough that he could play this week and isn't something that would necessitate putting him on injured reserve.

That could mean a quick release for Detmer, who was signed Tuesday.

In other injury news, Childress said cornerback Antoine Winfield (hamstring) and wide receiver Sidney Rice (hamstring) are both questionable and game-time decisions.

If Winfield can't go, rookie Marcus McCauley is expected to make his second straight start.

Rice said he would be good to go.

Defensive end Ray Edwards (foot) also is questionable.

Offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie (knee), wide receiver Bobby Wade (knee) and offensive tackle Ryan Cook (shoulder) are probable.
