The Green Bay Packers announced Thursday that they’ve elevated four players to their active roster ahead of tonight’s game against the 49ers inluding S Henry Black, CB Stanford Samuels, RB Dexter Williams and G Ben Braden.
All of these players will revert back to the Packers’ practice squad without having to clear waivers on Friday.
Williams, 23, is a former sixth-round pick of the Packers out of Notre Dame in 2019. He was waived coming out of the preseason last year and re-signed to the Packers’ practice squad before eventually being called up.
Williams was once again among the team’s roster cuts coming out of training camp this summer. He returned to the Packers’ practice squad.
In 2019, Williams appeared in four games for the Packers and rushed for 11 yards on five carries (2.8 YPC) and no touchdowns.
