Packers place QB Aaron Rodgers on IR

Posted Dec 19, 2017

QB Joe Callahan re-signed to active roster


The Green Bay Packers have signed QB Joe Callahan and placed QB Aaron Rodgers on injured reserve. The team also announced that they have released FB Joe Kerridge from the active roster and QB Jerod Evans from the practice squad. The transactions were announced Tuesday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

Callahan, a 6-foot-1, 216-pound second-year player, spent the first six weeks of this season on the Green Bay practice squad before being elevated to the active roster on Oct. 16, where he remained until being released on Dec. 16. He was originally signed by Green Bay as an undrafted rookie out of Wesley College on May 6, 2016. After being released by the Packers on Oct. 13, 2016, Callahan spent time with the New Orleans Saints and Cleveland Browns on the active roster before being signed to Green Bay’s practice squad on Dec. 2, 2016. He was signed to the active roster by the Packers on Dec. 17, 2016, where he spent the rest of the season. In 2015, Callahan became the first NCAA Division III quarterback to throw for 5,000 yards in a season, earning the Gagliardi Trophy, the highest award in Division III football. He will wear No. 6 for the Packers.
