Packers swap running backs on practice squad

The Green Bay Packers Monday made a pair of practice squad transactions, releasing running back Bobby Purify and replacing him with Sam Gado.

Gado, a 5-foot-10, 226-pound running back from Liberty, originally signed as an undrafted free agent with the Kansas City Chiefs this past May. Waived near the end of the preseason, he re-joined the Chiefs and spent the season's first month on their practice squad.

A native of Nigeria, Gado played 39 games at Liberty and averaged 6.0 yards on 273 career carries (1,631 yards) with 16 touchdowns, and caught 38 passes for 486 yards and six TDs.
