Packers coach Mike McCarthy reiterated on Monday that he will not be looking for a replacement for kicker Mason Crosby. The Packer kicker missed two more kicks in Sunday’s win over Chicago. Crosby has made just 17 of 29 field goal attempts this season. The NFC North champs take today off and will get back on the practice field on Wednesday in preparation for the Tennessee Titans on Sunday at Lambeau. That game kicks off at noon and you’ll hear it on KFIZ.
