GREEN BAY, WI (WHBL) - The Green Bay Packers put six players on injured reserve Tuesday to get down to their current roster limit of 75. All six are out for the year after serious injuries - nose tackle B-J Raji, offensive lineman Don Barclay, receiver Jared Abbrederis, guard Andrew Tiller, running back Rajion Neal, and inside linebacker Joe Thomas. Also, the Packers waived rookie tight end Colt Lyerla after reaching an injury settlement. His agent says the Packers will pay Lyerla about half of his 303-thousand dollar salary for this year. Other teams can sign him after week-eight of the regular season. Meanwhile, the Packers will hold their final public practice of Training Camp today. They'll get ready for their final exhibition game Thursday night at Lambeau Field against Kansas City - where players on the bubble will get one final audition to make the 53-man season roster. Final cuts are due by 5pm Saturday.
