Adding depth to their offensive line, the Green Bay Packers promoted guard/tackle Adam Pankey to the active roster and released defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois to make room.

As a vested veteran who was on a Week 1 roster, Jean Francois is guaranteed his base salary of $1.25 million. Signed in the offseason by the Packers after spending the past two seasons with Washington, where he played all 16 regular-season games in 2015 and ’16, Francois only saw the field for six defensive snaps in Green Bay’s season-opening win over Seattle.
