Packers Calendar: Six Roster Moves Forthcoming

Packers Calendar: Six Roster Moves Forthcoming

After releasing seven players on Sunday, the Green Bay Packers' roster currently stands at 81 players.

By Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. CT, the Packers must be down to a league-mandated 75 players, meaning they must make six transactions before day's end.

One option available to the Packers would be to place several ailing players on injured reserve, including defensive lineman B.J. Raji (biceps), wide receiver Jared Abbrederis (knee) and offensive lineman Don Barclay (knee).

In addition, two more rookies that haven't practiced or played in more than two weeks appear to meet their fate as well. Running back Rajion Neal (knee) and linebacker Joe Thomas (knee) figure to either be placed on injured reserve or released with an injury settlement.

The last transaction could come down to offensive lineman Andrew Tiller (calf), who didn't practice on Tuesday. The Packers won't have much use for someone that can't play in the team's preseason finale on Thursday against the Kansas City Chiefs unless Tiller is ready to return.

Two days away from the final preseason game at Lambeau Field, they won't be having a full-scale training camp practice.

Instead, the Packers will be having meetings and a walk-through at the team's Conditioning, Rehab and Instructional Center (CRIC) inside the stadium.

It's part of the new practice schedule instituted by head coach Mike McCarthy this season, one that's been in place for every game so far.

McCarthy will have a press conference at 11:30 a.m. CT to be streamed live on, however, it remains to be seen whether the organization will have made their transactions in time for McCarthy's meeting with the media.

In the evening hours, former Packers kicker Chris Jacke will represent the team  at the grand opening of the Bellin Health Home Care Equipment from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at 508 S. Military Ave. in Green Bay.
