Packers bringing back Ricky Jean Francois

Packers bringing back Ricky Jean Francois”

A week later, injuries along the defensive line necessitated Francois' return.

The Packers are bringing back veteran defensive lineman Ricky Jean Francois, but it's not because they fear Mike Daniels has a season-ending injury.

Without Daniels, the Packers have just three healthy defensive linemen: Dean Lowry, Kenny Clark and Quinton Dial. Rookie Montravius Adams is practicing to start the week but he hasn't played in an National Football League game due to offseason foot surgery. Daniels played just seven snaps before exiting.

The Packers released Francois after the first regular season game to make room for Geronimo Allison and the promotion of rookie Adam Pankey from the practice squad. Cornerback LaDarius Gunter was the other cut.

Daniels may well be out Sunday, weakening Green Bay's defensive line, but the Packers are not yet considering placing the stalwart interior defender on injured reserve, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. A foot injury has prevented Adams from making his way into the rotation. Daniels is one of eight players who didn't practice on Wednesday on a list that runs as deep as 13.

Jean-Francois visited the Seattle Seahawks and Chicago Bears this offseason before signing with the Packers, but the longtime starter did not receive much interest as an unexpected September free agent.

Francois was originally acquired by the Packers in March. Depending on however long that is, you can expect a few more Dunkin Donuts establishments to pop up around Green Bay.
