The Green Bay Packers made a host of roster moves on Tuesday, shuffling the deck on the 53 a bit after their week nine loss to the New England Patriots. Three players changed statuses on the 53, with the team freeing up a pair of spots and promoting one player from the practice squad.
One of the moves to open up a roster spot was expected, as the Packers announced that wide receiver Geronimo Allison has been sent to injured reserve. Allison suffered a groin injury in practice last week that was deemed a major issue and required surgery. He was expected to miss six weeks, and combined with the emergence of rookies Marquez Valdes-Scantling and, to a lesser extent, Equanimeous St. Brown, the team did not need to keep him on the roster for the time being.
The other move is surprising at the very least, as the Packers waived safety Jermaine Whitehead.
