Report: Packers to sign RB Don Jackson to active roster
Don Jackson was cut by the Packers right before camp before being signed to the practice squad in September.
With the injures the Green Bay Packers have at running back, it's time for the team to make some roster move. And it looks like they just did as Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel has reported that the Packers will sign running back Don Jackson from the practice squad to the active roster.

The Packers went with one true running back on Sunday vs. the Cowboys which was Eddie Lacy. However, Lacy was playing with an ankle injury and he did not practice on Monday. James Starks suffered a knee injury last week and he had surgery on the knee on Saturday. Jackson was signed by the Packers to the practice squad on Sept. 5 and did not see any preseason action as he was cut by the Packers right before training camp.
With the move, the Packers have also reportedly signed defensive tackle Brian Price back to the practice squad.
