Packers release Wynn, put Harrell on PUP

Five roster moves made to get roster to 75 players in time for Tuesday deadline

As part of five roster moves to reach Tuesday's 75-player limit, the Green Bay Packers on Monday morning released running back DeShawn Wynn and placed defensive tackle Justin Harrell on the physically unable to perform list.

Harrell is coming off offseason back surgery and has not practiced in training camp. By being placed on PUP, Harrell is ineligible to be on the active roster during the first six weeks of the season. After those six weeks, the player can practice with the club for up to three weeks before he must be added to the roster or placed on season-ending injured reserve.

In other moves, the Packers released fullback Ryan Powdrell, receiver Chris Francies and offensive lineman Ryan Considine. Francies has been running ahead of several receivers on the team, including seventh-round pick Brett Swain.

Rosters must be cut to 53 players by Saturday.

We'll have more on this after general manager Ted Thompson's press conference and today's 10:45 a.m. practice.
