  • Saw time at both tackle spots and at LG in reserve duty in 2014.
  • Spent the majority of his rookie campaign in 2013 on reserve/physically unable to perform after sustaining a significant ankle injury during the first practice of Organized Team Activities in the spring.
  • Returned to practice on Nov. 19 and was activated to the 53-man roster leading up to Green Bay’s Week 15 contest at Dallas. Was a gameday inactive for the final three regular-season games and the team’s playoff contest in ’13.
