Packers Add 15th Name to Injured Reserve List

December 31, 2010

General manager Ted Thompson announced the team has officially placed offensive lineman Marshall Newhouse on injured-reserve. Newhouse was one of two fifth-round selections of the Packers last April, but was inactive for every game this season.

The team re-signed offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith to fill Newhouse’s vacated roster spot. Dietrich-Smith first joined the Packers as an undrafted free agent in 2009, but was released prior to the 2010 season. The second-year player out of Idaho State was claimed by the Seattle Seahawks, but promptly waived after not appearing in the Hawks’ first four games.

The complete injured-reserve list is as follows:

# NAME POS. HT. WT. AGE EXP. COLLEGE
56 Barnett, Nick LB 6-2 236 29 8 Oregon State
Bell, Josh CB 5-11 177 25 3 Baylor
42 Burnett, Morgan S 6-1 209 21 R Georgia Tech
54 Chillar, Brandon LB 6-3 237 28 7 UCLA
88 Finley, Jermichael TE 6-5 247 23 3 Texas
25 Grant, Ryan RB 6-1 222 28 4 Notre Dame
91 Harrell, Justin DE 6-4 315 26 4 Tennessee
41 Havner, Spencer TE 6-3 250 27 2 UCLA
59 Jones, Brad LB 6-3 242 24 2 Colorado
29 Martin, Derrick S 5-10 198 25 5 Wyoming
96 Neal, Mike DE 6-3 294 23 R Purdue
74 Newhouse, Marshall G/T 6-4 319 22 R Texas Christian
51 Poppinga, Brady LB 6-3 250 31 6 Brigham Young
27 Smith, Anthony S 6-0 200 27 5 Syracuse
65 Tauscher, Mark T 6-3 320 33 11 Wisconsin

Despite having 15 players on injured-reserve, the Packers are still in control of their own postseason destiny. With a win against arch-rival Chicago on Sunday, the Packers would punch their ticket to Philadelphia and face the Eagles in the first-round of the playoffs. Another scenario that would automatically land the Packers in the playoffs would be a loss by both the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the New York Giants.
