Green Bay Packers Fill Out Practice Squad
According to Packers.com, the Green Bay Packers have finalized their 8-man practice squad. Along with the reported signings of their seven training camp players, the Packers have added OL Chris Scott. He was a fifth round draft pick in 2010 by the Pittsburgh Steelers, though he started out on their practice squad. In 2011, he began the season on the PUP list, after which he was added to the active roster. He only appeared in two games, however. The Packers list Scott as a guard/tackle.
It’s not surprising that Ted Thompson has added another offensive lineman to the list, considering he kept a record-low (for him) seven players on the 53-man roster. This brings the total of offensive linemen on the practice squad to three.
Here is a list of the eight practice squad members to begin the Green Bay Packers 2012 season:
- WR Diondre Borel
- TE Brandon Bostick
- QB B.J. Coleman
- T Andrew Datko
- DE Lawrence Guy
- G/T Chris Scott
- RB Marc Tyler
- G Greg Van Roten
