The Packers activated wide receiver Trevor Davis from injured reserve, as Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets. Davis may contribute in the return game upon his return while also providing depth behind Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling (a.k.a. Scantron), Randall Cobb, Equanimeous St. Brown, and J’Mon Moore.
A fifth-round choice in 2016, Davis hauled in 24 receptions and tallied 289 yards last season while playing on 40.5% of Green Bay’s special teams snaps. His return is well-timed for a Packers team that recently placed Geronimo Allison on IR.
Prior to the transaction, the Packers had only 52 players on the roster, so no corresponding move will have to be made before the team’s Thursday night game against the Seahawks. With a win, the Packers can keep themselves afloat in the NFC Wild Card chase while seriously damaging the Seahawks’ playoff hopes.
