Packers place CB King (hamstring) on IR

Updated: 06-12-2018 05:33 IST

The Green Bay Packers placed cornerback Kevin King on injured reserve with a hamstring injury Wednesday.

It's the second straight year the 2017 first-round pick will finish the season on injured reserve, after a shoulder issue bothered him as a rookie. King had sat out the last four games after missing time with a groin injury earlier this season. He has played in just 15 games through two seasons.

King finishes the year with 17 tackles, one interception and two passes defensed in six games, all starts.

The Packers also placed running back Tra Carson (ribs) on injured reserve and claimed cornerback Natrell Jamerson (from the Houston Texans) and defensive lineman Fadol Brown (from the Oakland Raiders) off waivers.

Jamerson, who turns 23 on Dec. 15, was a fifth-round pick of the New Orleans Saints in April, but he failed to make the Week 1 roster and was claimed by the Texans in September. He played 78 defensive snaps in 10 games, totaling seven tackles and a pass defensed, before being waived Tuesday.

Brown, 25, spent the 2017 season on Oakland's practice squad and played in eight games for the Raiders this season, tallying 17 tackles and two QB hits.

Carson, 26, played 83 of his 88 snaps this year on special teams.
