The Green Bay Packers added rookie offensive lineman J.C. Tretter to the active 53-man roster on Tuesday and placed wide receiver Myles White on injured reserve.
Tretter is the team’s fourth-round pick out of Cornell. He suffered a fracture in his fibula and torn ligaments in his ankle the first day of OTA’s on May 20 and started the season on the physically unable to perform list.
Tretter has worked at center during practice for the past few weeks. That would make him the likely backup if something were to happen to starter Evan Dietrich-Smith.
The Packers had to make a decision on Tretter by yesterday.
