The Green Bay Packers anticipate receiving a boost to their special teams next week.

On Wednesday http://www.packerscheapstore.com/bryan- ... rsey-cheap , wide receiver and return man Trevor Davis practiced for the first time since before the regular season, and the team expects to activate him off injured reserve when he becomes eligible next week.A hamstring injury landed Davis on IR in Week 2, leaving him eligible to return only after eight weeks had passed. It appears he will rejoin the 53-man roster just in time for the Packers’ Week 11 tilt with the Seattle Seahawks, a critical road matchup on Thursday Night Football. Davis’ eventual roster spot became available when Green Bay placed wide receiver Geronimo Allison on IR earlier this week and released defensive back Jermaine Whitehead.Davis has spent most of his brief NFL career as a contributor to special teams, both as a gunner on coverage units and a returner. Davis would immediately become attractive for both roles again given the Packers’ prolonged special-teams issues this season. Davis would also add modest depth in the receiving corps.Once the Packers officially activate Davis, they will have one IR-return designation left at their disposal. Fellow wideout Jake Kumerow also remains eligible to return, as do offensive lineman Kyle Murphy and http://www.packerscheapstore.com/corey- ... rsey-cheap , after several more weeks, cornerback Davon House.Packers CB Josh Jackson earns accolades for preseason success The Green Bay Packers pulled back the curtain on their new defensive personnel in training camp over the past month, and in doing so one player earned more time in the spotlight than any other. That is cornerback and second-round draft pick Josh Jackson, who picked up in Green Bay right where he left off in Iowa City last fall: making life hell for opposing quarterbacks.Jackson intercepted two passes in the preseason, taking them both back for touchdowns. Yes, one was erased by a penalty, but we’ll overlook that in favor of Jackson’s exceptional play. Not only that http://www.packerscheapstore.com/mason- ... rsey-cheap , but he allowed a perfect 0.0 passer rating into his coverage, according to Pro Football Focus, with just two receptions for 14 yards on nine targets.Those numbers were not only good enough to earn Jackson a nod on PFF’s All-Preseason Rookie team, they got him on the All-Preseason team regardless of experience level. And here’s what might be the craziest part: Jackson isn’t even projected to be one of the team’s starters in week one.Adding to the attention Jackson is receiving from national media was a shout-out from NFL writer Peter King, who predicted this week that Jackson will end up being the league’s defensive rookie of the year: “I don’t think he’ll start on fire, but as the season wears on, he’s going to be the most reliable cornerback on a strong playoff contender. He never was the fastest cornerback at Iowa Youth Tramon Williams Jersey , but he was smart and instinctive, and he’ll be among the league leaders in interceptions.”As of about three weeks ago, Jackson had the 12th-best odds of winning DROY, according to one online sportsbook that had him at 20:1. Following a trio of impressive performances to close out the preseason, those odds might just be dropping.As an added bonus, the Packers got a second player on PFF’s rookie All-Preseason team. Safety Raven Greene earned a spot on the 53-man roster with a very good performance in the exhibition games, and he landed the last spot on PFF’s squad as their “defensive flex” player. From PFF: “The 5-foot-11 http://www.packerscheapstore.com/blake- ... rsey-cheap , 197-pound James Madison product recorded 13 tackles, seven defensive stops and one forced fumble this preseason. He also allowed just three receptions on five targets for 18 yards.”
