Packers put six on IR, settle with Lyerla
GREEN BAY - The Packers trimmed down to 75 by putting several players on injured reserve Tuesday. Six players went on IR - B.J. Raji, Don Barclay and Jared Abbrederis are out for the year, while Raijon Neal, Joe Thomas and Andrew Tiller were placed on IR with the idea that they might also receive injury settlements from the team.
Tight end Colt Lyerla received an injury settlement and was waived Tuesday. Lyerla cannot come back to Packers camp until week 14 of the regular season, as the injury settlement covers eight weeks and NFL rules will keep Lyerla out of Green Bay for six additional weeks.
