Whitehead appeared in two games for the Packers in 2016 and has been on the team's practice squad since being released at roster cutdowns. The 24-year-old takes the roster spot of quarterback Aaron Rodgers (collarbone), who was placed on injured reserve. Whitehead could potentially see the field a bit more than typically expected in Week 7 with safety Morgan Burnett (hamstring) ruled out and cornerbacks Damarious Randall (hamstring) and Davon House (quadriceps) listed as questionable.
Whitehead (hip) was released by the Packers on Saturday.
It's not clear if Whitehead's hip injury is still an issue, but he is healthy enough to remain with Green Bay, and was added to the team's practice squad.
Whitehead is currently nursing a hip injury, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.
Whitehead played two games for the Packers last season, but spent the majority of the year on the practice squad. He is looking to make an impression during training camp, but is seemingly on track to fall short of the final roster.
