The Green Bay Packers have signed WR Patrick Williams from the practice squad and released WR Biren Ealy. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, announced the transactions Tuesday.
A 6-foot-1, 204-pound rookie from Colorado, Williams originally signed with the Packers as a non-drafted free agent in May. He spent the last seven weeks on the Packers' practice squad.
Williams will wear No. 18.
Ealy played in one game for the Packers and was a gameday inactive five times.
