Packers add CB Nixon to practice squad

The Packers didn't waste much time filling the void left on their practice squad after Brandian Ross was scooped up by Oakland.

The club announced Thursday that it had added cornerback James Nixon to the practice squad.

Nixon spent most of the preseason with Arizona after signing with the Cardinals as a non-drafted free agent out of Division II California University (Pa.).

Nixon appeared in 12 games with two starts at California (Pa.) after transferring in from Temple, where he played three seasons on offense, defense and as a returner.
