The Green Bay Packers’ injury parade continues. They have placed safety Chris Banjo and receiver Jared Abbrederis on injured reserve.
Banjo, one of the Packers’ top special teams performers, has only played in two games this season. It was expected he would be able to return, but with their safety depth and issues at cornerback, the Packers obviously felt Banjo was essentially expendable.
More Packers CB injury news: Chris Banjo headed to IR, source says. Will be healthy in 3-4 wks but they're juggling roster spots at CB.

Abbrederis, it appears, was in a similar situation. He missed the Bears’ game, but has barely played even when he’s been available.
The #Packers have put WR Jared Abbrederis on injured reserve with a thigh contusion.

A thigh contusion isn’t something that would normally end someone’s season. Apparently, the Packers finally decided that seven receivers was a luxury they couldn’t afford.
The bottom line here is the Packers now have two roster spots to fill. Those moves will surely be coming soon and we’ll update you when we have them.
No! 7 receivers are needed. Allison is being promoted.
Apparently, needing them, and using them, are 2 different things.
Could the Packers be opening a spot for Jared Cook’s return?
I think Cook is just inactive on game day. Not on any reserve lists.
Your probably right, i just cant think straight because i got so excited about Mark Murphy’s announcement in his rare press conference I’m just giddy..
Ok people….I have huge breaking news!!!!!
Just when you thought Mark Murphy only cared about developing the Titletown district, he held a news conference to address the hot issue that Packer fans everywhere have been waiting for. I hope this issue that Mark Murphy has finally addressed put’s Packer fans minds at ease. Murphy let it be known, that he is large and in charge of the Green Bay Packers. Following this News conference, make no mistake about it, the future of the Green Bay Packers starts and stops with Murphy’s vision and leadership.
Yes, it’s true, Murphy announced the huge news that a photograph of Rodgers, Favre, and Bart Starr will go on sale in November. Just in time to buy your loved ones that very special X-Mas gift. No pricing is available at this time, but just remember. Running a NFL franchise the way Mark Murphy runs it, can’t be done on the cheap.
