Packers release RB's Michael, Jackson

Both saw limited action in 2016

GREEN BAY -

The Green Bay Packers have released running backs Don Jackson and Christine Michael. 

 Jackson was originally signed by the Packers as an undrafted free agent on May 6, 2016, and spent the first five games on Green Bay’s practice squad before being signed to the active roster on Oct. 20.

He appeared in three games with one start last season before being placed on injured reserve on Nov. 16.

Michael played in six regular-season games and three postseason contests for the Packers last season after being claimed off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks on Nov. 16, 2016.

The Packers took three running backs in the 2017 NFL Draft BYU's Jamaal Williams, UTEP's Aaron Jones and Utah State's Devante Mays.
