On Wednesday, they filled that spot and made another swap to adjust the squad ahead of their week two matchup with the Detroit Lions .
Gone is defensive tackle Daylon Mack , who signed with the team just a week ago. Mack was not one of the two players elevated to the 53-man roster as the Packers kept just four defensive linemen on the gameday roster. With that move opening up a second free spot on the practice squad, the Packers then filled the two spots by signing defensive tackle Billy Winn  and offensive tackle Ryan Pope , both of whom practiced with the team on Wednesday.
Winn, a sixth-round draft pick of the Cleveland Browns  in 2012, has not played in an NFL game since 2016. He missed the 2017 season with a torn ACL, was out of football in 2018, then landed on injured reserve again in 2019 with a triceps injury. Winn played in 68 games from 2012 to 2016, however, starting 23 contests for the Browns , Colts , and Broncos .
Pope is a second-year linemen out of San Diego State. A 6-foot-7, 315-pound tackle, Pope signed with the Detroit Lions after the 2019 NFL draft  but was released at the end of training camp before spending time on the 49ers ’ and Jaguars ’ practice squads during the season. He remained in Jacksonville for 2020, but spent most of training camp on the reserve/COVID-19 list, at one point being the only player in the entire NFL still on the list . He was activated on August 31st, but was waived at final cuts.

Poor Mack, we hardly knew ye! And is Winn really the best option out there? A guy who hasn't played in several years?

In fairness to Mack, technical he failed the Lions physical, which I'm not sure counts as a release. No one knows, but people are speculating that Mack might be out of shape for NFL standard right now.

Because of the failed physical (which can have a conditioning test involved), and because NTs usually have a harder time staying in good conditioning when they're not in off-season workouts (like Packers NT Greene during the lockout)... though he passed the Ravens physical which has said to have the toughest conditioning test in the NFL, so I'm not sure if that's completely valid... of course the Ravens might give breaks to 340+ NTs too.

And no, Winn is not the best option... as I'm still available!

Well, I guess the Packers want to “Winn” now! 🤪
And having the “Pope” on the team gives the Packers a prayerful chance on another Super Bowl! 😁😂

Does it really matter who is there at NT/DT (whatever it's called). You just need a body to push OL around.

If that's the case, I'm ready for some Gilbert Brown.

Cheesey (24-Oct) : If there is any chance of making his injury worse, I would sit Jones out this game. We will need him for later.
