Packers add linebacker
By Kevin Seifert
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Green Bay made a minor roster move prior to Monday night’s game, promoting practice squad linebacker Cyril Obiozor to the active roster. To make room for Obiozor, the Packers placed linebacker Aaron Kampman (knee) on injured reserve.
Kampman had been destined for injured reserve since tests revealed he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee two weeks ago. Obiozor, an undrafted rookie from Texas A&M, was a training camp surprise and nearly made the Week 1 roster. The timing of the move makes it likely he will play against Baltimore.
