The Packers announced Wednesday that they have signed DL Johnny Jones to the practice squad. The Packers are currently a bit undermanned on the defensive line with DE Mike Neal facing left knee surgery and veteran DE Ryan Pickett battling a foot injury suffered in the Week Two win at Carolina.
Jones, a 6-foot-4, 310-pound rookie out of Marshall, signed with the Dolphins as a non-drafted free agent on July 28. He appeared in two preseason contests for the Dolphins before being released on Aug. 26. Jones played in 32 games with 16 starts during his final three seasons at Marshall. He will wear No. 67.
