News is coming down fast and furious. Many of us went into training camp believing that Tori Gurley would be the sixth wide receiver on the Packers this season. Zach Kruse of Cheesehead TV is reporting that this will not be the case:

Gurley's size made him an attractive option for the Packers' offense, which only boasts one wide receiver who would be considered "tall" (Jordy Nelson). However, Gurley struggled with some injuries early this preseason and never really had any consistent production.

Packers fans and coaches likely are hoping that Gurley will pass through waivers and be added to the team's practice squad, but with teams like Miami hurting badly for depth at wide receiver, that seems somewhat unlikely. It remains to be seen whether Diondre Borel or Jarrett Boykin will make the cut.

UPDATE: Zach Kruse is now reporting that Diondre Borel has been released as well.

My source has also said that the Packers have cut WR Diondre Borel. Both offseason darlings are gone.
