The Packers promoted linebacker Reggie Gilbert from the practice squad. He takes the roster spot of cornerback Demetri Goodson, whom Green Bay placed on injured reserve.

Goodson never played after coming off the physically unable to perform list on December 6. He underwent reconstructive surgery on his knee after a gruesome injury in a November 20, 2016, game against Washington and appeared on his way back when the Packers activated him.
