Joe Callahan has luckily not been needed to this point in the year, and due to injury issues at other roster spots — namely running back and cornerback — as well as two players set to return from suspension, he was just cut on Thursday afternoon. Seeing as he managed to force his way onto a crowded roster with his strong preseason performance, the Packers likely will bring him onto the practice squad — if another team with QB problems doesn’t use this chance to pick him up off waivers first.
Kendall Brice has seen snaps in every game so far this year, in part due to injuries hitting Morgan Burnett and Chris Banjo. Most of his snaps have been in coverage (38 out of 44), and he has done an okay job (PFF rates him below-average, but barely). He’s also been used a lot on special teams coverage (73.87% of the team’s total special teams snaps).
Marwin Evans is another option at safety, but to this point he hasn’t been seeing the field much at all. He has no snaps with the defense, and only been on the field for 26.13% of the special teams’ snaps.
Josh Hawkins has only seen seven snaps so far, but one of them was huge (and not in a good way). In Week 3 against the Lions, it was Hawkins on the receiving end of a stiff-arm from Marvin Jones on his way to his first TD catch that game. Between the usage of their safeties in nickel and dime packages and the expected future returns of guys like Sam Shields and Damarious Randall from injury (as well as Demetri Goodson from a 4-game suspension to start the year), Hawkins isn’t likely to see much time going forward — if he is even kept on the 53-man roster.
Brian Price was added to the active roster a couple games into the year, so he doesn’t have much to show. He did get 10 snaps on defense against Detroit, but added nothing to the stat sheet. With Mike Pennel eligible to return to the active roster this week, Price may be headed back to the practice squad again.
