The Green Bay Packers Monday placed wide receiver Robert Ferguson on injured reserve and claimed wide receiver Shaun Bodiford on waivers from the Detroit Lions. Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson made the announcement.
Bodiford, a 5-foot-11, 186-pound rookie out of Portland State, made his NFL debut at St. Louis Oct. 1. He played in three games, recording one tackle on special teams. During the preseason, Bodiford also returned kickoffs and punts for Detroit.
A first-team All-Big Sky Conference selection as a 2005 senior at Portland State, Bodiford caught at least one pass in all 22 of his Division I games after transferring from junior college.
Ferguson, in his sixth season out of Texas A&M, sustained a foot injury at Philadelphia, Oct. 2. The receiver had been inactive each of the Packers' last two games.
On Green Bay's roster, Bodiford is listed as No. 19. Wide receiver Carlton Brewster now will wear No. 13.
