Josh Myers' up-and-down starting to training camp could cost him his starting job at center. Head coach Matt LaFleur made it clear.

"Josh has done a really good job but we need more consistency," said LaFleur, according to Bill Huber of Sports Illustrated.

Myers struggled for consistency as a starter last season, and it's something he needs to fix to keep hold of his starting job long-term. The former second-round pick hasn't made the best start to training camp, having been involved in several botched snaps.

Zach Tom getting first-team reps at center earlier in the week is an indication that LaFleur is considering other options. A starting five of David Bakhtiari at left tackle, Elgton Jenkins at left guard, Tom at center, Jon Runyan Jr. at right guard, and Yosh Nijman at right tackle could be how the Packers begin the regular season.

Myers has started all 23 games he has played across two seasons, but the Packers need to see more from their third-year center. With a young and inexperienced offense, Green Bay needs its offensive line to hold up and give Jordan Love as much time as possible.

Unless Myers improves his consistency, he could soon lose his starting job to Tom.
