Report: Packers waive Lyerla, hope to place him on injured reserve

By Matt Trebby. CREATED Aug 19, 2014

The Packers brought tight end Colt Lyerla in to take a chance on his impressive athletic ability, and he certainly showed glimpses of that talent during training camp.

Unfortunately, he suffered a torn ACL during the team's Family Night practice and will miss this season.

With that being the case, the Packers decide to make a move on Tuesday regarding Lyerla:

The Journal Sentinel reported last week that Lyerla would likely miss this upcoming season. Ideally, the Packers are able to keep him on the books, though, and he will have a chance to make an impact for the team in 2015.
