The Packers have placed OLB Nick Perry on injured reserve, and promoted DL James Looney from the practice squad to the active roster.

Perry put together his least productive season since being selected in the 1st round of the NFL Draft in 2012. The oft-injured linebacker played in 9 games and finished with 1.5 sacks, 24 tackles, and one forced fumble.

Looney, a 2018 7th round selection by Green Bay, will provide depth along the defensive line with Mike Daniels expected to miss at least a few weeks with a foot injury.
