On Sunday, Head Coach Mike McCarthy said the team would announce those roster moves on Monday. With practice slated for 11:15 a.m. and likely to go at least two hours, it’s a good bet the roster moves will be made prior to practice.
The roster must then be reduced from 75 to 53 players by 8 p.m. CT on Friday. The Packers play their final preseason game on Thursday night against Kansas City.
Normally, the final roster cuts aren’t due until the Saturday following the conclusion of the last preseason games, but the deadline was moved up a day this year because the NFL Kickoff Opener is being played next Wednesday, Sept. 5, rather than on the traditional Thursday.
