The Green Bay Packers Saturday signed tight end Zac Alcorn from their practice squad. Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson made the announcement.
Alcorn, a 6-foot-4, 260-pound rookie out of Black Hills State, had spent the season's first 11 weeks on the Packers' practice squad. Originally signed as a non-drafted free agent this past May, Alcorn was an NAIA All-American at BHSU, where he caught 85 passes for 1,220 yards and 12 TDs in 20 games for the Yellow Jackets.
The Packers had one open spot on their 53-man roster after placing wide receiver Shaun Bodiford and tight end Tory Humphrey on injured reserve earlier in the week.
