With JK Scott's wife due to have a baby, that's why the Packers signed P Drew Kaser on Saturday. Still not clear who will punt tonight as both made the trip.

The Green Bay Packers claimed S Ibraheim Campbell off waivers from the New York Jets and released P Drew Kaser.

Campbell (5-11, 210), was originally selected in the fourth round (No. 115 overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns out of Northwestern. In addition to the Browns and the Jets, he has played for the Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys, appearing in 43 games with 11 starts in his first four years in the NFL.

#Packers WR Geronimo Allison is expected to have surgery on a core muscle injury, source said. Coach Mike McCarthy told reporters Allison had seen specialist Dr William Meyers in Philly. The recovery is roughly 6 weeks, making him a candidate for Injured Reserve.

The Green Bay Packers have signed CB Will Redmond to the active roster from the practice squad, signed LB Brady Sheldon to the practice squad, placed WR Geronimo Allison on injured reserve and released S Jermaine Whitehead.

So the moves essentially exchanged Campbell for Whitehead.  What is the story with Campbell??  Sounds like Petitine had some insights on him and played him a lot as a rookie.  And adding Redmond is probably a sign that King is going to miss some time.

Note that when in Cleveland, his playing time increased as time went along. Year one, 8 games. Then 15 and 16 the following years.

Wow.  Super stunned at Whitehead release.  He seemed to be a good coverage guy, smart, playing well, seemed to be getting considerable buzz as a capable guy, and with HaHa's departure seemed positioned to be a full-time guy.  (He'd been every-down guy in LA and NE until the ejection.)  Seemed to be writing a successful development story, the UDFA who develops into a solid, smart starting player. 

Obviously the CB/S distinction is more for roster listings than necessarily for on-field play.  So, Pettine may mostly play CBs at "safety" for the rest of the way. 
But for the moment, the listed "safeties" on the roster are Brice, who seems injured, perhaps seriously; Jones, whose coverage and decision-making haven't earned much trust thus far; Raven Greene, who I'm not sure if he's played any snaps yet; and Campbell, a guy limited enough to have been released by others teams plural, and to go unclaimed by the teams ahead of Packers in waivers line. 

That is a VERY inexperienced and uncertain safety room, that's for sure. 

I'm curious what Greene might be able to do, given opportunity? 

For a D+D team, it would sure be nice if MM and staff could somehow +D somebody.

Good post as usual craig.

Nice job of understanding the safety population. In the Packers defense they should probably just list all secondary players as DB's and skip the CB or S designations, that might slow the inventory checkers from obsessing about 'safety' now being a high priority in next years draft. Have the feeling that the Packers are not overly concerned about the current safety room.

 The Packers are bringing back wide receiver Trevor Davis from injured reserve and he is slated to practice on Wednesday.

Head Coach Mike McCarthy made the announcement Wednesday morning.

Davis went on IR back in Week 2 with a hamstring injury. He is not eligible to play in this week’s game against Miami, because the IR rules dictate players miss a minimum of eight games, but he will be eligible for next Thursday’s game at Seattle.

This should be a helpful move for the return game.

While that's true, RT, still it's evident that for the Rams game and the first half in New England, the Packers coaches liked Whitehead enough better than a bunch of other CB's and DB's to play Whitehead almost every snap. 

Puzzling why for 6 quarters they like the guy enough to play him ahead of 4-5 other DB's; then yesterday they don't like him enough to keep him on the roster.  Drop from 5th to 11th just like that?  Certainly it's unusual! 

Perhaps some off-field stuff again, rather than strictly performance-based, as with Randall?
Or perhaps two losses is changing Gute's approach?  When totally Nowacrat, maybe smart Whitehead would play ahead of Jones and Jackson and Greene.  But perhaps with two more losses on the books and a losing record, Gute is shifting towards a more Buildican perspective, and wants to look more at the younger guys?

Re Davis, do they not need to clear a spot for him till next week? 
With Allison gone, and with Cobb's sun setting, I admit I still wonder whether there's any chance that Davis might get any snaps at WR?  Probably not, but it might be fun to have somebody fast/quick available for slot.

They are at 52 at this moment, but they can't activate Davis until next week.

 I think that MVS has taken ownership of that speed guy from the slot and on the outside.

Activating Davis ahead of Kumerow is a mistake.

Davis' principal value is as a returner and his skills have been overblown. In '17, he averaged 22.4 yds on 31 kick returns, with no long gains or TD's. Average. The only phase where he excelled was as a PR, where he averaged a healthy 12.2 yds on 31 returns, a number largely fueled by a single long gain (65 yds). Regardless, GB averaged only 1.7 punt returns per game in '17. As such, Davis' "plus" skills as a punt returner translate into starting 1 or two possessions ~4 yds further upfield than they would with an average PR. That's +8 yards of offense/game. That's nothing.

Kumerow, on the other hand, was clearly the 3rd best receiver in camp, behind only Adams and Allison. It was obvious on both the practice field and in games. With Allison out and Cobb a non-factor, GB is thin on playmakers at WR. They need another guy who can produce from scrimmage much more than they need a few extra yards on returns.

Ya know, teams are allowed to have more than one fast WR...  8)

Really do like the speed and athleticism of the current WR corp. The best it's been in many years.

Wow, I disagree with everything you said...  hatsoff)

Kumerow is a veteran camp guy, so of course he was ahead of the rookies. He's way behind them now... Adding more speed at WR (Davis) is also a very good thing.

You minimized Davis return and special teams value... Curious how you could rate the PR against Cleveland as nothing.
