Packers will release WR/KR Darrius Shepherd, per reports

He came to the Green Bay Packers’ rookie minicamp on a tryout basis and earned himself a contract. He then shockingly made the team’s opening-week roster, getting some sparse playing time on offense and contributing a bit on returns as a rookie before being released and returning to the team’s practice squad.

With no like-for-like replacement on the team’s roster, head coach Matt LaFleur has turned to a jet motion-by-committee approach to fill Ervin’s role on that side of the football.

Seahawks and Eagles play a Wild Card rematch on Monday Night Football

Last year, Seattle’s win in Philly sent them to play the Packers in the Divisional round. This year’s game could have major NFC playoff seeding implications as well.

With the Minnesota Vikings’ win at New Orleans earlier in the day, that meant that the winner of the Seattle-Philly game was guaranteed a trip to Green Bay to play the Packers in the Divisional round. In that game, Seahawks rookie wideout D.K. Metcalf exploded, catching seven passes for 160 yards and a touchdown as...
