Packers Fill Up IR – What Happens Now?
Green Bay Packers announced Chris Banjo and Jared Abbrederis are both headed to the IR with minor injuries to free up some more roster space. Is this a bit of a dirty practice? Yes, yes it is. But at the same time, it really helps Green Bay reform their roster. They already replaced Abby with Geronimo Allison, the potentially talented rookie receiver who is 6’3 and gives Packers a jump ball threat which they haven’t had in years. As for the secondary position, a move might be coming today as to who Green Bay adds to the roster. The free agent corner market is about as ugly as the bar scene at 2:30 am at Halloween. Herb Waters is a converted WR who is on the practice squad currently, but that’s not going to work for Atlanta.
Green Bay’s room for error with injuries couldn’t be smaller.
