The Packers have released wide receiver Travis Fulgham and offensive lineman Travis Bruffy as they clear space for players returning to the active roster from the COVID-19 reserve list.
Fulgham, a 2019 sixth-round pick by the Lions, was claimed on waivers last week. The Packers also added Malik Turner to their receiver room around the same time, giving them a bit of a surplus at the position.
Bruffy signed with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Texas Tech. Bruffy started 34 games at tackle in college and has good size, so he may be a name to keep an eye on down the road should the Packers want to take a longer look at offensive line prospects.
As of this morning, long snapper Hunter Bradley and edge rusher Greg Roberts were the only players on the list. Bradley was removed and returned to practice while Roberts was present, but didn’t participate. Releasing two players would seem to indicate Roberts is ready to return.
UPDATE: Wednesday’s transaction wire confirmed these transactions, including both Bradley and Roberts coming off the reserve/COVID-19 list. Roberts, however, has been designated as Physically Unable to Perform; therefore he will count against the team’s 80-man active roster limit, but he will not practice until medically cleared from the issue that landed him on PUP.
