The Packers made a trio of roster moves in advance of Sunday’s game against the Ravens.

Less than 24 hours before Week 11’s game against the Baltimore Ravens, the Green Bay Packers made a trio of roster moves. The team placed offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga on injured reserve, activated offensive tackle Jason Spriggs off injured reserve, and promoted fullback Joe Kerridge from the practice squad.

The Packers waited longer than expected to put Bulaga, who tore his ACL two weeks ago, on injured reserve, but they apparently wanted to announce the decision in conjunction with Spriggs’ return to the 53-man roster. The team designated Spriggs for return from IR last week, allowing the offensive tackle to begin practicing.

Green Bay still had another open roster spot to fill after releasing tight end Martellus Bennett before last week’s win against the Chicago Bears. That spot went to Kerridge, who spent time with the team a year ago as a backup fullback and special teams contributor.

After the trio of moves, the Packers’ roster now stands at 53 players.
