The Packers will have a new return specialist when they return from their Week Four bye.
Jeremy Ross, who returned kickoffs and punts for the Packers in the club’s first three regular-season games, has been released, the club said Monday.
Ross couldn’t catch a short kick on the run in Sunday’s loss to Cincinnati, setting up a Bengals touchdown in a 34-30 Green Bay defeat. Ross also fumbled a punt in the Packers’ divisional-round loss at San Francisco in January, leading to a San Francisco touchdown.
The 25-year-old Ross has returned six kickoffs for 75 yards and two punts for 20 yards this season.
Ross, who entered the NFL as undrafted free agent from Cal in 2011, has also had stints with New England and Indianapolis. The Packers signed him to their roster from the practice squad late last season.
