    The Green Bay Packers Saturday signed tight end Zac Alcorn from their practice squad. Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson made the announcement.

    Alcorn, a 6-foot-4, 260-pound rookie out of Black Hills State, had spent the season's first 11 weeks on the Packers' practice squad. Originally signed as a non-drafted free agent this past May, Alcorn was an NAIA All-American at BHSU, where he caught 85 passes for 1,220 yards and 12 TDs in 20 games for the Yellow Jackets.

    The Packers had one open spot on their 53-man roster after placing wide receiver Shaun Bodiford and tight end Tory Humphrey on injured reserve earlier in the week.

    Question,

    Being on a practice squad gives one how many snaps with the number one team, and or how many opportunity's to have Brett work with the kid so Brett knows his game when he steps up to the roster.

    Does anyone know?
