A linebacker for the Green Bay Packers will not play for the rest of 2013 after being placed on injured reserve.

Robert Francois suffered an Achilles injury in Sunday's 22-9 Packers win over the Detroit Lions.

To fill the open roster spot, the Packers added cornerback James Nixon from the practice squad to the active roster.

He served on the practice squad for the last 20 regular and postseason games.

Francois gave his thoughts Monday evening.
