GREEN BAY — The Green Bay Packers have signed rookie cornerback Tony Brown to the active roster from the practice squad after placing defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson on injured reserve.

Brown had joined the Packers’ practice squad after being cut by the Los Angeles Chargers following training camp. The 6-foot Brown had 89 tackles and three interceptions in 51 games at Alabama, where he also a valuable contributor on special teams.

Wilkerson had surgery this week after suffering a season-ending ankle injury during last week’s 31-17 loss at Washington. The signing of the veteran free agent in the offseason was intended to strengthen what was already a solid defensive line.

Green Bay also signed defensive lineman Deon Simon to the practice squad. The 6-foot-4 Simon spent the first three weeks of the season on the Tennessee Titans’ practice squad.
