    The Green Bay Packers Wednesday signed safety Atari Bigby from their practice squad and placed both wide receiver Shaun Bodiford and tight end Tory Humphrey on injured reserve. Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson made the announcement.

    In addition Wednesday, the team signed tackle Orrin Thompson to take Bigby's place on the practice squad. The team's active roster temporarily will list 52 players.

    Bigby, a 5-foot-11, 211-pound safety out of Central Florida, is a first-year player who made his NFL debut for the Packers on Christmas Day last year vs. Chicago. He helped the Amsterdam Admirals to a berth in World Bowl XIV this past spring, starting all 10 regular-season games and recording 61 tackles (43 solo) with one interception and four passes defensed. Re-signed by the Packers in September, he spent the first 10 weeks of 2006 on the Green Bay practice squad.

    Thompson, a 6-foot-6, 322-pound tackle out of Duke, had spent most of his career on the practice squad of the Miami Dolphins, who allocated him to NFL Europe this past spring. Originally signed by Miami as a non-drafted free agent in 2005, he'll wear No. 69 for the Packers.

    Bodiford (leg) and Humphrey (hamstring) each sustained injuries Sunday at Minnesota.

    Are we going to go find another WR now? Like Tyrone Calico, Peter Warrick or maybe even Charles Rodgers?

    I still say the Packers need to talk to the Raiders and get Jerry Porter.

    Jerry was finally gven an opportunity to run a play last Sunday and he hauled in one for over 20 yards.

    The Raiders head office is so messed up right now that he can be had.

    Porter and Driver would be scary.

    Hasn't the trade dedline already passed?

    They would need to cut him outright for GB to get him.
