What do the Green Bay Packers love more than anything else? Defensive futility!
Okay, other than that.
The Packers came out of camp with just one fullback on their roster this season — Aaron Ripkowski. While that is perfectly normal, this is a team and a regime that once carried three fullbacks on their roster and has carried two more times than most.
Last season, the Packers finished the season with two. Undrafted rookie Joe Kerridge joined Ripkowski.
Kerridge was a tough cut — in terms of performance, not position — following camp, this year. Much like receiver Max McCarffrey, who was/is in the same position, Kerridge is now back.
The Packers signed Kerridge to the practice squad on Monday.
That’s where Kerridge started his Packers career. The team initially signed him to the practice squad last October. They brought him up to the active roster shortly thereafter. Kerridge played in eight games for the Packers in 2016.
So now he’s back where he started. If there happen to be injuries, we wouldn’t doubt Kerridge could find himself back on the active roster again.
