Wynn Back on Roster as Lumpkin Out for Year

One of the better stories regarding this year's Packers roster has come to an end many weeks too short. Undrafted free agent running back Kregg Lumpkin has been placed on the injured reserve after dealing with hamstring problems for the last couple of weeks. To take his place on the roster, the Packers have called up DeShawn Wynn from the practice squad. Wynn was one of the backs Lumpkin had originally beat out for the No. 3 RB spot.

It's tough to see the Packers continually go through injury, even though some may be more serious than others. The Packers recently put Cullen Jenkins on the IR, and we still don't know the severity of Al Harris's spleen injury. But for guys like Wynn, who are given a second shot through these injuries, they need to step up and keep this season on track.

It's still unknown whether Wynn will be active for today's game against Seattle. For a preview of that game, check out our friends over at Pack and Cheese.
