The Packers made progress toward their 53-man roster deadline with eight cuts, the team announced.

While the cuts contained no true surprises, local product Jeremy Unertl saw his Green Bay journey end, as did a couple of NFL Europe hopefuls.

Unertl, a safety out of UW-La Crosse who got a good look in Thursday's weather delayed game, was waived Friday.

Also among the eight released were wide receivers Mike Horacek and Heckenbach of the Braunschweig Lions who never got back onto the field after suffering from exhaustion early in training camp. Also cut were safety Bobby Jackson, running back Adam Tate, punter Tim Morgan, defensive end Jermaine Petty and linebacker Isaac Keys.

The Packers put WR Travis Williams on reserve/non football injury/NFL Europe.

Tate and Jackson were waived/injured and Petty was released upon reaching an injury settlement.

The NFL mandated dealine to reach the 53-player limit is 3 p.m. Sunday (CDT). Five-man practice squads may be formed after 11 a.m. Monday.

Teams may establish a 5-player Practice Squad after 11 a.m. Monday.
