The Drew Kaser era lasted only a few days. On Monday, the Green Bay Packers announced that they had released the punter to make room for safety Ibraheim Campbell, a safety waived late last week.

Campbell, a fifth-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, spent time with two teams -- Dallas Cowboys and New York Jets -- this season before landing in Green Bay. He reinforces a position group recently thinned by the departure of Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and a lower-body injury to Kentrell Brice. The Packers issued Campbell uniform No. 39.

Kaser, whom the Packers signed as a backup plan should punter JK Scott leave the team for the birth of his first child, became expendable after Sunday’s game. Scott will presumably rejoin his teammates later this week in advance of Green Bay’s home tilt with the Miami Dolphins.

With those moves, the Packers’ 53-man roster remains full. More roster adjustments could come if Geronimo Allison’s muscle injury forces the team activate wideouts Jake Kumerow or Trevor Davis off injured reserve or force a free-agent signing.
