Even more personnel moves in Green Bay
By Kevin Seifert
Don't worry. I've sent a whole package of "Hello, my name is _______" stickers to the Green Bay Packers locker room.
The Packer added their veteran in two days Wednesday afternoon by claiming nose tackle Howard Green off waivers from the New York Jets. Green will join the trio of linebackers the Packers also acquired as they desperately try to rebuild their depth following a spate of injuries.
Green took the roster spot of linebacker Brad Jones, whom the Packers placed on injured reserve a few hours after coach Mike McCarthy revealed he had a significant shoulder injury. Jones is the 11th player the Packers have lost for the season because of injury.
Green, 31, will provide some depth for a defensive line that could be without Ryan Pickett (ankle) and Cullen Jenkins (calf) on Sunday against the New York Jets. Neither player practiced Wednesday.
