Seven to see action in spring league

Seven members of the Green Bay Packers will be participating in NFL Europe, which kicks off its 11th season this weekend.<p>

Quarterback Craig Nall, looking to acquire game experience in preparing for his second season, is one of four Packers assigned to Scotland's Claymores, joining linebackers Isaac Keys and Jermaine Petty, and safety Bobby Jackson.

Two others, safety Jeremy Unertl, a former UW-La Crosse standout, and punter Tim Morgan, will be playing for the Frankfurt Galaxy, and wide receiver Travis Williams for the Amsterdam Admirals.

Nall is the only player allocated by the Packers who was on the team's regular season roster in 2002.
