Thompson back to practice squad; roster spot cleared for Robinson

Orrin Thompson, who was placed on waivers on Thursday by the Green Bay Packers, was re-signed to the team's eight-man practice squad on Friday. To make room for Thompson, the Packers placed wide receiver Onrea Jones on waivers, has learned.

The moves likely were made make room for wide receiver Koren Robinson, who was reinstated to the NFL by commissioner Roger Goodell on Wednesday after serving a year-long suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Goodell had granted the Packers a roster exemption for Robinson that expires on Oct. 30. If the Packers want to activate Robinson to the 53-man roster, they have to do so prior to that deadline.

With Thompson on the practice squad, the Packers have room on their roster for Robinson.

The Packers also face another roster conundrum if Bubba Franks (knee sprain) is unable to play next Monday night. If that's the case the Packers may have to clear another roster spot by waiving a player, or placing a player on injured reserve, to promote tight end Ryan Krause from the practice squad.
