The Packers have signed K Zach Ramirez, who was a tryout player at the Seahawks’ rookie camp in May. Ramirez was a first-team All-American in the FCS while at Portland State in 2011, but only played six games as a senior because of injury.

Earlier this week, Packers General Manager Ted Thompson said that it was possible that the Packers’ kicker wasn’t on the roster so Ramirez would seem to have a shot at winning the job if he does well in the next couple of weeks competing against Mason Crosby and Giorgio Tavecchio.

The Packers announced today that they have released kicker Zach Ramirez, which leaves the much-maligned Mason Crosby as the only kicker on the roster. It’s still possible that the Packers will grab a kicker who’s not currently on the roster, but it’s more likely that Crosby will again enter the season as the Packers’ placekicker.

Green Bay also confirmed that tackle Bryan Bulaga, receiver Kevin Dorsey, running back DuJuan Harris and linebacker Jarvis Reed were placed on injured reserve.

Safety Sean Richardson, tackle Derek Sherrod, tackle JC Tretter and defensive end Jerel Worthy were placed on reserve/physically unable to perform.

The Packers seem to have the worst luck drafting Dlineman and Olineman early with these injuries.

And lately, their kicker is their Achilles heel.

As a Packer fan, the injury that hurts the most to me was Nick Collins. If the Packers still had him paired with Burnett and the corners they currently have (Williams/Shields/Hayward/House/Hyde), they would have a secondary with no holes and a lot of ballhawking and depth.

But yeah, the injuries to Sherrod and Bulaga, especially simultaneously, have also sucked. It is what it is, Bakhtiari is going to need to be ready to play.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy insisted DuJuan Harris was the team’s starting running back even as he remained on the physically unable to perform list. However, those plans had to be altered when Harris re-injured his knee last Friday against the Seattle Seahawks and had to be placed on injured reserve.

McCarthy spoke Wednesday to just how much of a blow the loss of Harris will be for the Packers.

McCarthy: “Every offseason, you go through evaluations of your offense, you do offseason studies, you project how you envision your offense looking and then you kind of confirm things after the draft. You have a vision, packages in place on how you’re going to start the season. I’ll just tell you this: DuJuan was a big part of particularly my individual focus for this season.”

Former Jets running back Joe McKnight is about to get a fresh start, in a totally different environment. McKnight tweeted he was “headed to Green Bay tomorrow,” which leads one to believe he’s signing with the Packers.

Mason Crosby’s hold on the kicking job in Green Bay may not be secure: Havard Rugland, the Norwegian YouTube sensation known as Kickalicious, worked out for the Packers today.

Rugland wrote on Twitter that he thought the workout went well.

“Had a great workout with Green bay this morning. Thankful for the opportunity,” Rugland wrote.

The Packers released QB Vince Young.

As the Packers assemble their practice squad, one name stands out as a player who could be particularly valuable for their Week One practices: QB Scott Tolzien.

The 49ers will be playing the Packers to open the season on Sunday, September 8, which means the Packers will likely be asking Tolzien to run the 49ers’ offense for the scout team to help the Packers’ defense prepare. Having Tolzien around can certainly help the Packers’ defense get ready to face the 49ers’ offense — and given the way the Packers’ defense played against the 49ers’ offense in the playoffs, Green Bay needs the help.

When the Packers cut B.J. Coleman, the only backup quarterback on their 53-man roster, we wondered who Aaron Rodgers‘ backup would be. It didn’t take long to find out the answer: Seneca Wallace, who signed with the Packers today, Ed Werder of ESPN reports.

As the Packers prepare for their Week One meeting with the 49ers, they now have two quarterbacks who can run the 49ers’ offense to help their defense prepare: Both Wallace and Scott Tolzien, who’s on the Packers’ practice squad, were with the 49ers until last week.

i wonder if SF will sign Vince Young for a week too....

the 49ers would be better off signing BJ Coleman since he has been with the Packers longer then Young and may actually know more of the offense. Wallace was with the 49ers for a week, how much of the offense would he truly have grasped in that time?

The Packers will be down a cornerback when they face the 49ers to kick of the 2013 season. Coach Mike McCarthy said at his Wednesday press conference that Casey Hayward will not play.

Hayward injured his hamstring early in training camp and then wound up aggravating the injury upon his return to work in the later part of August. McCarthy said there was no timetable for his return.

Not every team is fortunate enough to have an Eric Sugarman on its staff.

oh I realize how good we have it with Sugarman, but even compared with the rest of the league the Pack seem to get hit with the injury bug hard just about every year
