The Packers released running back Don Jackson Monday after Ted Thompson selected three running backs in the 2017 NFL Draft. 

Jackson joined the Packers on May 6, 2016, and was signed to the team's practice squad before being promoted to the active roster.  

He started in one of the three games that he played in and was then placed on injured reserve in November.
