Packers lose DT Guy from practice squad

BY foxsports • October 17, 2012

The Packers have lost defensive tackle Lawrence Guy from their practice squad, as he will join the Indianapolis Colts active roster, according to a tweet from Colts owner Jim Irsay.

Green Bay selected Guy in the seventh round of the 2011 NFL Draft out of Arizona State, where Guy was a freshman All-American in 2008.

During his rookie training camp, Guy suffered a concussion that forced him to be placed on injured reserve. He was released at the end of training camp this season, but was later added to the practice squad.

With Guy's departure, Green Bay has two open slots on the practice squad, as the team signed offensive lineman Drew Van Roten to the active roster last Saturday.

The Packers announced Tuesday that they will add defensive tackle Drew Vanderlin and wide receiver Jeremy Ross to the practice squad.

Vanderlin, a Green Bay native and graduate of Southwest High School, attended the Packers rookie orientation on a tryout in May after finishing his career second all-time in sacks at Michigan Tech.

Signed as an undrafted free agent by New England out of California in 2011, Ross spent most of 2011 on the Colts practice squad. He was released by Indianapolis in August.

Ross finished his career at Cal second all-time in punt return average, while catching 57 passes for 764 yards and three touchdowns.
