The Green Bay Packers signed RB Tra Carson to the active roster from the practice squad and released DL Fadol Brown. The transactions were announced Saturday by General Manager Brian Gutekunst.
(tray) Carson, a 5-foot-11, 228-pound third-year player, was originally signed by the Cincinnati Bengals as an undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M on May 6, 2016. He spent almost all of his rookie season on the Bengals’ practice squad, was on injured reserve for the 2017 season and was waived/injured by the Bengals after Week 2 of the 2018 season. He was signed to the Packers’ practice squad on Oct. 9, 2018, and promoted to Green Bay’s active roster on Oct. 31, 2018, where he saw action in four games before being placed on injured reserve on Dec. 5, 2018. Carson spent the first four games of this season on the Packers’ practice squad.
Brown was claimed by the Packers off of waivers from the Oakland Raiders on Dec. 5, 2018, and went on to appear in four games last season and the first four games of this season for Green Bay.
