Defensive lineman Kingsley Keke, safety Henry Black, punter Corey Bojorquez and tight end Tyler Davis were the new additions to the list from the active roster. The team also announced it signed cornerback Jayson Stanley to the practice squad and placed him on the COVID-19 reserve list.

Offensive guard Ben Braden, linebacker Oren Burks, linebacker Tipa Galeai, corner Shemar Jean-Charles, corner Kevin King, tight end Marcedes Lewis, linebacker Chauncey Rivers, receiver Amari Rodgers, linebacker Ty Summers, receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling, linebacker La’Darius Hamilton (practice squad/COVID-19) and defensive lineman R.J.

The Packers also elevated offensive lineman Cole Van Lanen from the practice squad to the active roster as a COVID-19 replacement, signed linebacker Aaron Adeoye, offensive tackle Adrian Ealy and running back Kerrith Whyte to the practice squad.

  1. Being without Bojo is a very bad thing. Not just for the punting, but the holding on placements as well. Not good.

  2. Unless 12 gets hit by a bus, there’s no chance the Vikings beat GB on Sunday. He’s playing on another level right now.

  3. Some of the players will be able to come back by Sunday under the new covid protocols.

  4. I think the Vikings will prevail on Sunday evening. Whenever these two teams play each other it’s either Packer injuries or, now, Packer Covid as an equalizer. Otherwise, it shouldn’t be close.
