With the Packers adding a tryout player after rookie minicamp, they needed to make some room.

The team announced the release of running back Lavon Coleman.

Coleman was signed to the practice squad last October, and was called up to the active roster in December.

He appeared in one game. He went to camp with the Texans last year, and spent some time on the Seahawks practice squad as well.
