The Green Bay Packers activated RB AJ Dillon from the exempt/COVID-19 list, signed TE Dominique Dafney to the active roster from the practice squad, elevated WR Juwann Winfree and G Ben Braden from the practice squad to the active roster for gameday and signed TE Isaac Nauta to the practice squad. The transactions were announced Saturday by General Manager Brian Gutekunst.

Dafney was on the Packers' practice squad since Week 6 and was a gameday elevation last week, seeing action on offense and special teams.

(NAW-tuh) Nauta (6-3, 246) was originally selected by the Detroit Lions in the seventh round (No. 224 overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft out of the University of Georgia. In two seasons with the Lions, he played in 13 games, recording three receptions for 16 yards (5.3 avg.). Nauta will wear No. 82 for the Packers.
