GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The practice squad has always been an avenue to the Green Bay Packers' roster, but this season it hasn't happened much.
By the end of last season, the Packers had promoted seven players from their practice squad.
This year, four players have been on the practice squad all season: safety Chris Banjo, linebacker Adrian Hubbard, offensive lineman Jeremy Vujnovich and receiver Myles White.
Last year, only one player -- tackle Aaron Adams -- spent all 17 weeks on the practice squad.
With practice squads expanded from eight to 10 players this season, it's no surprise that the Packers already have had more players (19) on their practice squad than they did all of last year (17).
With the Packers taking an extra day off this week because of the Monday Night Football game against the Atlanta Falcons at Lambeau Field, it's a good time to revisit what general manager Ted Thompson has done with his practice squad this season.
Here's a player-by-player look at how much time each has spent on the practice squad this season:
G Josh Allen: Weeks 1-3
S Chris Banjo: Week 1-present
WR Kevin Dorsey: Weeks 1-5 (promoted to active roster in Week 6, placed on injured reserve in Week 10)
WR Alex Gillett: Week 11-present
CB Tay Glover-Wright: Week 6-present
RB Michael Hill: Weeks 1-8
