Two released, two added

The team is reporting that it has waived CB Joey Thomas and released WR Jayson Foster.

Taking Thomas' spot on the 53-man roster is S Tyrone Culver. Taking Foster's spot on the practice squad is DT Anthony Toribio. The team still has one open practice squad spot.

Here's some info about Culver from the team's site:
Culver, 25, was a sixth-round draft choice of Green Bay in 2006. He played in 14 games, all in a reserve role, with the Packers that year and was credited with six tackles on defense and three more on special teams. He spent all of 2007 on injured reserve with a shoulder injury before being waived on August 31, 2008. Culver was a four-year letterman at Fresno State (2002-05), during which time he played in 51 games with 26 starts and recorded 178 tackles, four sacks, three fumble recoveries and five interceptions.
The practice squad now looks like this (with one spot left to fill):
  1. CB Will Billingsley
  2. T Daren Heerspink
  3. RB Lex Hilliard
  4. TE Matthew Mulligan
  5. LB Tyson Smith
  6. WR Anthony Armstrong
  7. DT Anthony Toribio
