The Green Bay Packers are ramping up to play the Chicago Bears on Sunday. Roster moves are inevitable throughout the season and today was no different. The Packers added two players to the active roster before Sunday’s contest Vs. the Bears. One of offense and one on defense. RB Patrick Taylor and S Micah Abernathy will see the field Vs Chicago.

He has also spent time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Indianapolis Colts and played for the Dallas Renegades of the XFL in 2020 and the Houston Gamblers of the USFL in 2022.
Taylor has spent the season on the Packers’ practice squad and active roster.
