Even with his familiarity with the offense, Tauscher almost certainly will be watching his replacement, Allen Barbre, playing right tackle on Sunday against Detroit. Tauscher said he’s more in “jogging-down-the-street shape” than he is football shape. That was evident during individual work, when he appeared to wear down quickly during drills.
“Today was a good start, just going out and doing some drills and getting the pads on and hitting again,” Tauscher said. “It’s been obviously a long layoff. So, obviously, to come back and to get back into it, a little bit of time is needed. I don’t think that’s been determined.”

Despite Tauscher presence, Barbre likely to start for Green Bay Sunday
