(Green Bay, WI) — The Green Bay Packers have added rookie tight end Emanuel Byrd to the 53-man roster from the practice squad. He will take some of the snaps in the team’s double-tight-end sets, a big part of the offensive playbook for the Packers. An injury to Richard Rodgers led to the move. Byrd will back up starting tight end Lance Kendricks. Another injury, this one to offensive lineman Jason Spriggs, will force some shuffling on the roster. Spriggs has been placed on injured reserve with what his coach calls a “serious, serious injury.” He had been on I-R earlier in the season.
