The Green Bay Packers have signed CB Josh Gordy to the practice squad and released LB Robert Francois from the practice squad. The transactions were announced Wednesday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

Gordy, a 5-foot-11, 195-pound rookie, was signed by Jacksonville in May as a non-drafted free agent and spent most of the preseason with the Jaguars. Gordy attended Central Michigan, where he was a second-team All-Mid-American Conference selection as a senior when he led the Chippewas with three interceptions. He will wear No. 27.
