GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -

Backup quarterback Graham Harrell had a big night for the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, but one thing was missing in the late stages of the game: the swoosh symbol that's supposed to be on his jersey.

Talk about a football fashion faux pas.

Harrell says he had to change jerseys after his got torn during the Packers' 24-3 preseason victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. But the Packers apparently didn't have an identical replacement for Harrell's Nike-branded jersey available, so he had to put on an older one.

Harrell said, "They ripped my Nike one, and we just don't have replacement ones yet, I guess, is the story."

Nike replaced Reebok as the supplier of NFL team uniforms earlier this year.

Harrell added, "I hope I don't get fined, I guess."
