The Packers have no players on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Earlier in training camp, the Green Bay Packers had five players on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

The good news is that the number is now down to zero. According to Rob Demovsky of ESPN, the Packers have activated long snapper Hunter Bradley from the reserve/COVID-19 list, and have moved linebacker Greg Roberts to the PUP list.

As Demovsky notes, Roberts didn’t play last season due to a core muscle injury, which could explain why he’s now on the PUP list.

In order to keep the roster at 80 players, the Packers had to make a couple of moves. The team announced on Wednesday that they have released offensive tackle Travis Bruffy and wide receiver Travis Fulgham. Bruffy was signed as an undrafted free agent. Fulgham was claimed off waivers earlier this month.

Along with Bradley and Roberts, the team did have a total of five players on the reserve/COVID-19 list at one point.

Kicker Mason Crosby was activated in time for the team’s first training camp practice last week. Tight end Jace Sternberger and defensive lineman Treyvon Hester were activated earlier this week.

With no players on the reserve/COVID-19 list, the Packers seem to be close to full strength. There are players dealing with injuries, including wide receiver Davante Adams and left tackle David Bakhtiari, although they both reportedly practiced on Wednesday, a good sign that neither injury is too serious.

According to Pete Dougherty of Packers News, there are currently three players on the PUP list now that Roberts has been added. Inside linebacker Curtis Bolton and offensive lineman Yosh Nijman are the other two.

The Packers were one of the healthiest teams in the NFL last season and they’ll be hoping that continues this year. Matt LaFleur will need to find the balance between getting enough good preparation in for the season without taking too many risks.
