Packers Announce Moves To Reach 75 Man Roster Limit

Packers Announce Moves To Reach 75 Man Roster Limit


The Green Bay Packers placed six players on injured reserve, two on reserve/physically unable to perform, and released two players. The transactions were announced Monday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

The Packers placed RB Du’ane Bennett, LB Desmond Bishop, TE DeMarco Cosby, G Ray Dominguez, DE Johnny Jones and WR Shaky Smithson on injured reserve. TE Andrew Quarless and LB Frank Zombo were placed on reserve/physically unable to perform.

Green Bay released FB Jon Hoese and DE Jarius Wynn.

Look for many of the guys sent to IR to be released after they reach injury settlements with the team.

The Packers fell victim to the inability of the league and players union to agree on a proposed one-man non-season ending injured reserve designation, thus forcing them to put Bishop on IR, ending his season.

The influx of talent along the defensive line made the decision on Wynn an easy one, as did the move away from the fullback in Mike McCarthy's offense for the decision on Hoese. That, and both players rarely showed much throughout the summer that deserved inclusion on the roster.

As for Quarless and Zombo, players on PUP must sit out the team's first 6 regular-season games.

It is interesting that they didn't put sherrod on the PUP. Must mean he is somewhat close to returning.

Maybe they should put Starks on the PUP. Seemed to work in 2010. He'll be ready in time for the playoffs. Just kidding... sort of.

They could still put Sherrod on PUP. In fact, I think they probably will.

Sad to see Jon go, but now he can follow his true calling and open a nautical store called "Boats 'N Hoese."

Shakey?? What does the Pack see in him? Avg WR at best.

It's because you can't cut a guy with a name as cool as "Shakey"

Shaky will def reach and injury settlement and be released.

If Sherrod goes on PUP, then he can't participate in team practice for 6 weeks, right? Maybe they want him to have his "training camp" if he's almost ready to practice.

Smith will fit in fine filling Desmond's shoes. No worries.
