It’s an Injured Reserve party for the Green Bay Packers as the announcement came down from Packers officials today about cuts and moves to trim the roster to the 75 players.

The players named to the injured reserve list and the physically unable to perform list were no surprise; in addition, the two cut from the team were no surprise either.

The team public relations department released the information below this afternoon.
