The Green Bay Packers (3-6) are making their final preparations ahead of hosting the Los Angeles Chargers. As the team’s playoff chances are on life support (mathematically), the team is likely looking to take away as many positives from the 2023 season as possible.
The Green Bay Packers Add Safety Benny Sapp III To The Active Roster For The First Time In His Career
According to the Green Bay Packers:
The Green Bay Packers have elevated S Benny Sapp III from the practice squad to the active roster for gameday. General Manager Brian Gutekunst announced the transaction Saturday.
Sapp originally joined the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Northern Iowa this past May and has been on Green Bay’s practice squad all season.
In the preseason, Sapp played 63 defensive snaps for Green Bay. Against Seattle, he made four tackles, allowed one reception on two targets for seven yards, recorded one pass breakup and an interception.
Despite being a longshot for the initial 53-man roster, Sapp was immediately signed back to the practice squad following August’s roster cuts.
Jonathan Owens and Anthony Johnson will start at safety with Darnell Savage on injured reserve and Rudy Ford doubtful. Among the backups are special teamers Dallin Leavitt and Zayne Anderson.
In recent weeks, Owens and Johnson have been strong special teams contributors, but with each player having to play more defensive snaps on Sunday, their special teams roles might be reduced, and that’s where Sapp comes in to provide added depth.
