Tracking Packers' practice-squad moves

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.

Only four players -- receiver Kevin Dorsey, offensive lineman Garth Gerhart, tight end Justin Perillo and defensive end Luther Robinson -- have taken that route to the 53 this year.

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

  • LB Adrian Hubbard: Week 1-present

  • G Rishaw Johnson: Week 12

  • DE Joe Kruger: Weeks 6-8

  • G Jordan McCray: Week 6, Week 10

  • TE Justin Perillo: Weeks 1-10 (promoted to active roster in Week 11)

  • RB Rajion Neal: Week 10-present

  • T Justin Renfrow: Week 13-present

  • DE Luther Robinson: Weeks 1-4 (promoted to active roster in Week 5)

  • S Jumal Rolle: Weeks 1-4 (signed by the Houston Texans in Week 5)

  • LB Joe Thomas: Week 10-present

  • T Jeremy Vujnovich: Week 1-present

  • G Josh Walker: Week 4-present
