Panthers claim former Packers CB Ladarius Gunter waive kicker

The Green Bay Packers are surprising releasing veteran defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois, according to NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Allison was an important offensive piece for the Packers midway through the season previous year, when he was promoted from the practice squad due to other injuries in the receiving corps.

Francois played in only three games as a rookie but wound up clocking in full 16-game seasons over the next three years with the 49ers. Cornerback Ladarius Gunter has been cut to make room for wide receiver Geronimo Allison, who returns to the team after serving a one game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Gunter was on the field Sunday for only two snaps, but played 14 on special teams.

An undrafted free agent from West Virginia, Pankey was signed by the Packers on May 5. But Dial should be ready to go this week when the Packers face the Falcons in Atlanta. ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky reported this morning that the Packers promoted guard/tackle Adam Pankey to the teams roster. The 30-year-old defensive lineman originally signed a one-year, $3 million deal with Packers back on March 23. Guaranteed at his signing was $250,000, which he will be able to keep.

The Packers might need the extra body up front, especially with Bryan Bulaga still recovering from a sprained ankle and Spriggs now dealing with a hamstring injury suffered during Green Bay's win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1.

With five defensive linemen now on the roster, the Packers seem set, but given the changes that Thompson has made recently, nothing is out of the realm of possibility as we move ahead.

Sunday's game in Atlanta will be the featured Sunday night game.
