The Green Bay Packers released offensive lineman Cole Madison, fullback Jordan Jones, placed offensive lineman Simon Stepaniak, running back Patrick Taylor on the non-football injury list and placed linebacker Curtis Bolton and offensive lineman Yosh Nijman on the physically unable to perform list on Friday.

ESPN’s Rob Demovsky broke the news on Friday.

Madison was a fifth-round draft pick just two years ago.  He voluntarily sat out his rookie season while dealing with the loss of his friend and former college teammate Tyler Hilinski.  An ACL injury late in 2019 ended Madison’s second season.

Jones was added to the roster back in April but with the Geen Bay Packers acquisition of H-back John Lovett, Jones’ time on the roster came to an end.

Stepaniak and Taylor landing on NFI means their reported injuries are not football-related and they took place outside of team and football activities.  This means the Packers have the right not to play either player’s salary, if they choose.

Bolton and Nijman starting camp on the PUP list means that, should they not recover in time, they can start the regular season on the list, which would prevent them from participating with the team for at least six weeks.

Bolton tore his ACL during a preseason game against the Oakland Raiders last year.  Played on a shoddy surface in Winnipeg, Canada, the Green Bay Packers also lost receiver Equanimeous St. Brown for the season in that same game.

The severity of the injuries has not yet been disclosed.  The Green Bay Packers have a few more weeks to trim their roster down to 80 players so expect more moves to follow.
