It’s worth mentioning that the NFL changed the rules regarding injured reserve for the 2020 season and players can return from the list in just three weeks. 

Winn, 31, is a former sixth-round pick of the Browns back in 2012 out of Boise State. He signed a four-year rookie deal through the 2015 season. 

At the start of 2015, Winn was traded by the Browns to the Colts for a conditional seventh-round pick. From there, he signed on with the Broncos the following year and returned to Denver in 2019 on a one-year deal. 

The Broncos placed Winn on injured reserve last year with a triceps injury and opted to cut him loose this past March. He signed on to the Packers’ practice squad in September and was later added to their active roster. 

In 2020, Winn has appeared in six games for the Packers and recorded six tackles, no sacks and two passes defended.
