The Green Bay Packers have released a total of six players so far, as they continue to get down to the NFL mandated 75 player roster limit by 3 p.m. on Tuesday.
Along with punter Peter Mortell, the Packers also released DT Demetris Anderson, CB Randall Jette, WR Jamel Johnson, WR Ed Williams and LB Derrick Mathews.
The Packers are back on the practice field this afternoon, the first of two final open to the public sessions before the official close of training camp.
Wide receiver Jeff Janis, who fractured a bone in his right hand back on August 10, is practicing for the first time. He has a large club cast on that hand.
In other injury related news, Morgan Burnett has returned from a back injury. He’s been sidelined since August 12. But first round draft pick Kenny Clark, who missed last week’s game at San Francisco, remains out with back issues.
Backup quarterback Brett Hundley has also returned to practice today after re-aggravating an ankle injury a couple of weeks ago. It’s unknown if he’ll try to play this week against Kansas City.
