#Packers have cut C Sampson Genus, according to an NFL source. Had a solid camp and should get some play around the NFL.— tom silverstein (@TomSilverstein) August 31, 2012
According to one of Tom Silverstein's sources, the Packers have released center/guard Sampson Genus. This comes on the heels of the announcement that Anthony Levine has been released as well. Genus is a practice squad candidate, but showed enough promise that he may get picked up by a team looking for depth on the interior of the offensive line.
#Packers waived WR/KR Shaky Smithson off IR with an injury settlement. 1 of 5 players placed on IR this week.— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) August 31, 2012
According to reporter Adam Caplan, the Packers waived three players from injured reserve, giving them injury settlements. WR Shaky Smithson was cut first, followed by G Ray Dominguez and TE DeMarco Cosby. But keep in mind that since these players were placed on IR before the cut-down to 75, that doesn't help the team get any closer to 53 today.
