Waters (shoulder) cleared waivers and reverted to injured reserve Saturday.
Waters originally hurt his shoulder in minicamp but aggravated the injury in the opening days of training camp. The exact details of the ailment remain clouded, however.
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.
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 going forward.
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.
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.
