Packers Roster Cuts: Tracking Tuesday's Moves to Reach the 75-Man Limit

The Packers used injured reserve on Tuesday to get down to 75 players.

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Going into the morning on Tuesday, the Green Bay Packers' active roster sat at 81 players after the release of seven men on Sunday afternoon. That left the team with six more players to remove from the active roster by 3:00 PM Central today to make it to the NFL's 75-man limit.

As expected, Injured Reserve will be a key component of the team's decisions for the first round of cuts. ESPN's Rob Demovsky confirms the first move:

Wide receiver Jared Abbrederis and offensive lineman Don Barclay should follow Raji onto Injured Reserve shortly.

As for players who are being released entirely, guard Andrew Tiller is first up: [Ed. Note: Tiller has instead been placed on IR]

These two moves leave the Packers with 79 players on the roster (since Abbrederis and Barclay have not been confirmed yet).

UPDATE: The final roster moves are in and posted to the NFL's official transaction wire
