We’ve been waiting for the Green Bay Packers to make this roster move. Defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson was sent to injured reserve on Saturday.
The Packers initially tried to sign defensive lineman Brian Price from the Browns’ practice squad to replace Wilkerson. The Browns gave Price, a former Packer, a raise and he decided to stay in Cleveland.
Instead, the roster move was elevating cornerback Tony Brown from the practice squad. The Packers have listed cornerback Kevin King as questionable for Sunday’s game with Buffalo. With House’s season over, they can use the depth.
Brown is an undrafted rookie out of Alabama who was initially signed by the Los Angeles Chargers.
The team also signed free agent cornerback Bashaud Breeland earlier this week.
It now appears the Packers are content with the guys they have on their defensive line. Wilkerson’s absence will lead to more snaps for Dean Lowry and Montravius Adams. The latter has played only 13 snaps on the season.
