Packers Promote CB Jumal Rolle to 53-Man Roster

The Packers filled one of the two empty spots on their roster with a player from their practice squad.


On Friday afternoon, the Green Bay Packers made a minor roster move. The team promoted practice squad cornerback Jumal Rolle to the active 53-man roster today, bringing the total number of players on the roster to 52.

Rolle, an undrafted free agent, is listed at 6 feet tall and 188 pounds and played his college ball at Division II Catawba College. Rolle becomes the sixth cornerback on the active roster, joining Tramon Williams, Sam Shields, Davon House, Micah Hyde, and Jarrett Bush.

Since the roster sits at 52 players, the speculation is now running rampant that Randall Cobb will be activated from Injured Reserve on Saturday. The team can still activate Cobb on Saturday and have him eligible to play on Sunday against the Bears:

Hopefully Cobb's evaluation on Saturday goes well and he's able to play on Sunday. It seems unlikely, however, that the team would activate him tomorrow if they do not intend for him to be on the field.
