The Green Bay Packers signed receiver Reggie Begelton to the active roster and promoted DL Billy Wynn and LB De’Jon Harris from the practice squad for Monday night’s game against the Atlanta Falcons.

With Davante Adams ruled out earlier today and with Allen Lazard out indefinitely, Begelton was signed to boost the depth at receiver.
The Packers will run with Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Darrius Shepherd, Malik Taylor and Begelton at receiver in addition to Tyler Ervin, who has taken snaps out wide.
Aaron Rodgers & Co. will also likely rely heavily on their tight ends and running backs in the passing game, an approach that has worked well through the first three games.
The Falcons will be without their top three safeties and have very little experience at cornerback in Isaiah Oliver, Blidi Wreh-Wiilson and Kendall Sheffield.
Everything suggests this could be an offensive battle with many points scored and is an opportunity for the Packers’ defense to show that they can step up and carry a team missing many weapons on the other side of the ball.
