Not that this really matters at all, but linebacker Nick Perry’s season is over. The Green Bay Packers placed Perry on injured reserve on Saturday.
Fullback Joe Kerridge will take his place on the active roster.
Kerridge spent time on the active roster last season. He didn’t make the roster this season, but was brought back to the practice squad in October. And now he’s back on the active roster again.
Kerridge got a little bit of time on offense last season. Remember coach Mike McCarthy’s famous two-fullback set with Aaron Ripkowski? However, Kerridge primarily was used as a special teams player.
For Perry, it concludes a disappointing season after his breakout year. Perry will finish with 38 tackles and seven sacks, while appearing in 12 games. In 2016, Perry played 14 games, recorded 52 tackles and 11 sacks.
