Packers Place Josh Boyd On IR, Sign Joe Thomas

The Packers have placed defensive end Josh Boyd on season-ending IR, as Rob Demovsky of writes. In a related move, Green Bay has plucked Joe Thomas off of the Cowboys taxi squad.

Boyd, a fifth-round pick in 2013, has played in 26 career regular-season games. Unfortunately, on Sunday, he suffered an ankle injury and an MRI revealed torn ligaments. Boyd appeared in 15 games (4 starts) for Green Bay in 2014, racking up 22 total tackles and one pass deflection.

Thomas was released by the Packers at the end of the preseason and spent part of last year on their taxi squad. Now, the Packers have seized the opportunity to welcome him back with Sam Barrington on IR.
