Green Bay Packers cut Knile Davis

It is proving to be a very turbulent season for the Green Bay Packers who are currently 4-3 and coming off the back of a very demoralising 33-32 defeat to the Atlanta Falcons.

Green Bay conceded the game winning touchdown with just :31 left in the game against Atlanta and couldn't mount a late scoring drive.

Another big call

One of Green Bay's biggest weaknesses this season has been the runningback position which has suffered big injuries to stars Eddie Lacy and James Starks.

That prompted the Packers to complete a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs for Knile Davis who made his Green Bay debut against Atlanta.

It is a short lived career in Wisconsin for Davis though who has already been cut by the Packers.

Less than two weeks after signing with the NFC North team, Davis has been shown the door already - despite Packers head coach Mike McCarthy calling him a "a natural football player."

Davis didn't play in Green Bay divisional win over the Chicago Bears and against the Falcons he was limited to just eight yards off of three rushes and two catches.

The decision to cut Davis now means that the trade with Kansas will give the Chiefs nothing in exchange for Davis.

Davis being cut could signal an earlier than expected return form injury for Starks who has been sidelined for several weeks with a knee problem.

The Packers lent on receiver Ty Montgomery in their week seven win over the Chicago Bears and could have to do so again next week against the Indianapolis Colts as they try and avoid slipping to 4-4.
