With the health of their offensive line still in question, the Green Bay Packers continue to look at ways of reinforcing the unit. On Tuesday, the team plans to work out free agent Andrew Wylie, according to a source informed of the situation.

Wylie, a 6-foot-5, 309-pound offensive lineman, played collegiately at Eastern Michigan. He put together a tremendous workout on pro day, placing him in the 86th percentile by SPARQ for his position group, according to 3 Sigma Athlete's numbers. Wylie finished second among incoming offensive linemen to Kofi Amichia, the Packers' sixth-round pick this year.

Wylie ultimately went undrafted, signing with the Indianapolis Colts in May. He managed to remain into the regular season as a member of the practice squad before the team released him on Sept. 26.

The Packers have nine offensive linemen on their 53-man roster at present, but starting tackles David Bakhtiari and Bryan Bulaga have each missed multiple games this season with hamstring and ankle issues respectively. Those injuries and others to Kyle Murphy, Jason Spriggs, and Don Barclay forced the team to promote Adam Pankey off the practice squad and sign Ulrick John. If Green Bay decides to sign Wylie following his workout, the free agent would most likely join the practice squad.
