The Packers had a couple of wide receivers pick up injuries on Sunday night and they’re adding another receiver to the active roster on Tuesday.

Agent Mike McCartney announced that his client Juwann Winfree is being signed off of the team’s practice squad.

Winfree appeared in three games earlier this season and caught four passes for 30 yards in Green Bay’s Week Eight win over the Cardinals. The Packers were missing Davante Adams and Allen Lazard in that game, which opened the door for Winfree to see 54 offensive snaps.

Equanimeous St. Brown was evaluated for a concussion on Sunday night and Malik Taylor suffered an abdominal injury. The Packers are also without Randall Cobb after he had core muscle surgery and went on injured reserve.

  1. Couldn’t be happier for the kid, he’s got some juice and it’ll be fun to see him grow.

  2. What an amazing opportunity for this young man. He gets to play for the 13 time World Champion Green Bay Packers, the most successful franchise in NFL history. And they’re one the favorites to win yet another title!

    Clincher.. Championship
    Thanks for the thought and vote of confidence, it’s a shame you can’t be as optimistic about your Vikings, but you’re accustomed to that I guess.

  4. Right now, I’d be alright sending Davante Adams back to field punts with the explicit instructions to fair catch every single one of them.
    It would greatly lessen my anxiety levels every time GB’s defense forces a 4th down.

  5. He showed some promise in his last couple appearances. Hopefully he can help make a difference.

  6. Kid had a good game against the Cards when they were without adams, Lazard and scantling. He looks like he can contribute

  7. This young guy could develop into something pretty good if Rodgers trusts him enough. That’s always the key, but I’ve seen enough to make me feel good about his skills.
