The Green Bay Packers have placed second-year linebacker Marcus Wilkins on injured reserve, GM/Head Coach Mike Sherman announced Sunday.
Wilkins suffered a calf injury in the Packers' regular-season finale against the Denver Broncos, Dec. 28. Primarily a special teams player, Wilkins made three tackles in his second season out of Texas.
The 6-foot-6, 227-pound Dorsch gives the team added depth behind kicker Ryan Longwell and punter Josh Bidwell.
A fourth-round draft pick in 2002, Dorsch won the Ray Guy award as a senior at Purdue as the nation's top punter.
Dorsch did not make the trip to Philadelphia and will be among the Packers' inactives for Sunday's playoff game against the Eagles.
The transaction was completed Saturday, Jan. 10.
