Packers place Lane Taylor on injured reserve

The former undrafted free agent is set to be a free agent next March. 

The Packers announced on Tuesday afternoon that they have placed guard Lane Taylor on injured reserve and released linebacker Greg Roberts from the practice squad. 

The 30 year old Taylor, who is set to be a free agent in March after reworking his deal this past offseason and taking a paycut. injured his right knee in Week 1's game in Minnesota.

Taylor played in two games last season before a biceps injury ended his year.

The former undrafted free agent has made a career out of beating the odds. Here's hoping he's back at it either in Green Bay or in another NFL city next season.

He beat the odds. Age, injuries. Time to move on.

Actually, if he comes back from the knee surgery, he could be effective for 3-4 more years. He's 30, tough call.

He could come back on a lower priced, prove it deal and be worth while. Or a deal with a vast majority of compensation not guaranteed. But with the younger possible depth at G he could be looking elsewhere than GB anyways. Rooting for him as a person to persevere.

Lane took a team friendly deal this year. Not sure how much more you can ask the guy to give. Lets hope its a complete and quick recovery, he deserves that and our thanks for his time with the GBP.

I think this allows them to move John Lovett up to the regular roster from the practice squad.
