Packers Activate LB Christian Kirksey, Promote Four

The Green Bay Packers announced that they are activating LB Christian Kirksey from the injured reserve and promoted S Henry Black, WR Juwann Winfree, CB KeiVarae Russell, and CB Stanford Samuels from their practice squad. 

The Packers also placed TE John Lovett on their injured reserve. 

Kirksey, 28, is a former third-round pick of the Browns back in 2014. He was in the final year of his four-year, $3.04 million contract when he agreed to a four-year contract extension worth $38 million and includes $20 million guaranteed.

Kirksey was set to make a base salary of $7.75 million for the 2020 season when the Browns released him last offseason. Back in March, the Packers signed him to a two-year, $16 million contract. 

He was placed on injured reserve last month but was recently designated to return. 

In 2020, Kirksey has appeared in three games and recorded 27 total tackles and no tackles for loss or sacks.
