Packers WR/KR Trevor Davis put on injured reserve

The Packers placed Trevor Davis on injured reserve Tuesday, along with some other roster moves.

Davis was a late scratch before Sunday's game against the Bears with a hamstring injury. He also battled a hamstring injury through most of training camp and missed all but one preseason contest.

The Packers kick returner/wide receiver won a spot on the 53-man roster as Green Bay's most reliable returner and talented special teams gunner. 

In the regular-season opener, Ty Montgomery and rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling returned kicks for the Packers, while veteran Randall Cobb took over punt return duties. Tramon Williams and Jaire Alexander also practiced returning during training camp.

The Packers additionally claimed CB Deante Burton claimed off of waivers from the Atlanta Falcons. Burton was signed as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Kansas State in May 2017 and spent last season on the Falcons' practice squad. 

CB Will Redmond was signed to the practice squad as S Marwin Evans was released from the practice squad.

Redmond, a third-year player, spent the last season on the Chiefs' practice squad before being released Sept. 1. The Mississippi State product was originally selected by the San Francisco 49ers in the third round (No. 68 overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft.
