Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jared Abbrederis has been out since suffering a concussion on the first day of training camp (July 30). Today, Abbrederis returned to workouts and it would appear, he’ll play in the preseason finale against the New Orleans Saints on Thursday night.
Abbrederis’ return comes on the day the Packers must reduce their roster from 83 to 75 players.
The Packers selected Abbrederis out of the University of Wisconsin in the 2014 draft. He spent last season on injured reserve and he has yet to play in a preseason game for the team.
The Packers must decide if Abbrederis can contribute this season and if he is a better option than Myles White, who moved into the fifth receiver spot after catching nine passes for 89 yards against the Eagles last Saturday night.
The Packers will have to make their roster moves by the 3pm deadline today. They’ll face the New Orleans Saints at home on Thursday night, then will need to go from 75 to 53 by 3 p.m. on Saturday.
