The Packers will likely promote Don Jackson from the practice squad for Thursday's game against the Bears, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

A 2016 undrafted free agent, Jackson was cut by the Packers just before training camp and didn't log a single preseason snap. With no professional action to point to, he recorded 520 carries for 2,318 yards in three collegiate seasons at Nevada, good for 4.5 YPC. If the expected move comes to fruition, Jackson will serve as the primary backup running back to Eddie Lacy (ankle) for at least one game and perhaps for the duration of James Starks' recovery from a torn meniscus.
