The Green Bay Packers have signed CB David Long Jr. to the practice squad and released RB Kenyan Drake from the practice squad. General Manager Brian Gutekunst announced the transactions Friday.

Long Jr. (5-11, 196), a fifth-year player out of the University of Michigan, rejoins the Packers. He played in three games for Green Bay after being claimed off waivers from the Carolina Panthers on Dec. 5. Long was originally selected by the Los Angeles Rams in the third round (No. 79 overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft.

The Packers have another running back on the practice squad, rookie Ellis Merriweather. If Dillon is inactive Sunday, the Packers will have Aaron Jones, Patrick Taylor, and Emanuel Wilson on the 53-man roster available to play the Cowboys.
