Roster moves

Packers general manager Ted Thompson got a jump-start on this weekend's roster cutdown by releasing offensive linemen Will Whitticker and Mookie Moore. The Packers will have to be at the NFL-mandated limit of 53 players by 3 p.m. (CT) on Saturday.

Whitticker started eight games as a rookie last season at right guard, but lost his job because he was ineffective. The new coaching staff tried him at left and right tackles during the off-season mini-camps and Organized Team Activities practices, but he injured his hamstring early in training camp and never returned to practice.

Moore was obtained during training camp, but has missed a number of practices and preseason games with a shoulder injury.

Both Whitticker and Moore did not practice with the team on Wednesday and were not expected to play Friday afternoon against Tennessee in the final exhibition game.
