The Green Bay Packers have signed QB Graham Harrell to the active roster from the practice squad and placed S Anthony Smith on injured reserve. The transactions were announced Saturday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.
Harrell, a 6-foot-2, 215-pound first-year player out of Texas Tech, signed with the Packers in May 2010 and has been on Green Bay's practice squad for all 13 games this season. He finished his collegiate career atop the NCAA record books in several passing categories.
Smith played in four games for the Packers this season after being acquired from Jacksonville in a trade on Oct. 18.
