Steelers' Herb Waters: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waters (undisclosed) reverted to the Steelers' injured reserve list Friday, per the NFL communication's official transaction log.

Waters went unclaimed after Pittsburgh waived/injured him. He has yet to see any NFL action since going undrafted in 2015. That will hold true unless both he and the Steelers reach an injury settlement. If that occurs he would be free to look for a new opportunity.

Herb Waters: Waived by Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waters was waived by the Packers on Monday, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

Waters didn't make the cut in a Green Bay secondary that's suddenly flush with talent at the cornerback position. The Miami product will become an unrestricted free agent if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

Packers' Herb Waters: Signs with Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waters signed a contract with the Packers on Thursday, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Herb Waters: Waived with injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waters (shoulder) was waived/injured by the Packers on Thursday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Green Bay was pretty much set at cornerback anyways with offseason-signing Davon House, 2017 second-round pick Kevin King (shoulder), 2015 first-round pick Damarious Randall and 2015 second-round pick Quinten Rollins all on the active roster. Waters was limited in his ability to prove his worth through training camp due to this shoulder injury. If he clears waivers, he'll be placed on injured reserve.

Packers' Herb Waters: Still nursing shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waters was unable to practice Friday, as he is still nursing a shoulder injury that held him out for much of the Packers' spring program.

Waters was seen with his arm in a sling in mid-June. His slow recovery time could potentially cost him a spot on the team, as he will need to take part in training camp in order to earn a roster spot. He remains day-to-day.

Packers' Herb Waters: Arm in sling
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waters had his arm in a sling Tuesday but says it's a minor injury, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

The cornerback did not offer any specifics on the injury, but it will be something to keep an eye on as training camp nears. Before he got hurt, Waters was apparently playing well in OTAs.

Packers' Herb Waters: Joins Packers' roster as cornerback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waters joined the Packers' 53-man roster Wednesday as a cornerback, Rob Demovsky of reports.

After he was unable to make the team out of training camp, Waters landed on the Packers' practice squad, from which he's been practicing as a cornerback since Week 2 and identified as a member of the positional group since Week 5. Because Makinton Dorleant (knee) was placed on IR on Wednesday and the statuses of Damarious Randall (knee) and Quinton Rollins (concussion) are up in the air, Waters could play a key role in the coverage schemes during Sunday's wild-card game versus the Giants.

Packers' Herb Waters: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waters was promoted to the Packers' active roster Wednesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

An undrafted rookie, Waters is unlikely to take on any significant role during the Packers' playoff run. The receiver will replace injured teammate Makinton Dorleant (knee) ahead of Sunday's game against the Giants.

Herb Waters: Released by Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waters was released by the Packers on Saturday, Rob Demovsky of reports.

Waters spent all of training camp with the Packers after signing as an undrafted free agent, but he faced long odds to make the cut given the team's depth at his position, and ended up on the outside looking in. He is a candidate for the practice squad, however.
