Packers sign Joe Kerridge to practice squad

The Packers can't quit fullbacks.

NFL: Green Bay Packers-Practice Green Bay Press Gazette-USA TODAY NETWORK

The Green Bay Packers have made some adjustments to their roster. On Monday, the team announced the signing of fullback Joe Kerridge to the practice squad, releasing offensive lineman Darrell Greene to make room.

The signing marks the second time Kerridge, a 6-foot, 245-pound running back, has spent time on the Packers' practices squad. The team added him there a year ago, eventually promoting him to the active roster on Nov. 7, 2016, where he remained for the duration of the season. Kerridge originally entered the league as an undrafted free agent from the University of Michigan.

Kerridge returned to Green Bay in 2017 to compete for a roster spot but ended up on injured reserve with a calf injury. The Packers released him with an injury settlement that prevented his return for an extended period. With that period now apparently concluded, the team brought Kerridge back.

In eight regular-season appearances, Kerridge played primarily on special teams. He recorded one carry for no yards.
