Packers place rookie center Josh Myers on injured reserve
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Green Bay Packers center Josh Myers has been placed on injured reserve after hurting his knee in a victory over the Chicago Bears.
The Packers (5-1) announced the move Saturday. They also elevated guard Ben Braden from the practice squad to the active roster for Sunday's game against Washington (2-4).
Because he has been placed on injured reserve, Myers must miss at least the next three games.
Myers, a rookie second-round pick from Ohio State, started each of the Packers' first four games before missing a 25-22 victory at Cincinnati on Oct. 10 with a finger injury.
He returned to action Sunday at Chicago but played just four snaps before a knee injury knocked him out for the rest of the game.
