The Green Bay Packers placed WR Sammy Watkins on IR on Saturday
The Green Bay Packers made three roster moves ahead of Saturday’s Week 3 roster deadline:
- Placed WR Sammy Watkins on IR
- Signed RB Patrick Taylor to the 53-man Active Roster
- Elevated WR Juwann Winfree from the Practice Squad to the Gameday Active Roster
While a bummer, hopefully this is a shorter term stint for Watkins on IR as he can be designated to return after 4 games.
The team signed Taylor to the Active Roster, an unsurprising move as they still have 5 WRs remaining on the 53-man and only had 2 RBs.
Winfree is a Practice Squad elevation for the 2nd time this season. Players can be elevated 3 times from the Practice Squad on gamedays in a season.
