Packers put Dean Lowry on IR, sign Bo Melton off Seahawks practice squad

Following the Packers' comeback win over the Dolphins, Green Bay is trending up at the right time while Miami is trending down.

Packers defensive lineman Dean Lowry has played in 101 consecutive games, but he will not make it to No. 102.

The team announced on Tuesday that Lowry has been placed on injured reserve. Lowry injured his calf in Sunday’s win over the Dolphins and will miss the team’s final two regular season games. He would be eligible to return after two postseason games, but the Packers have a lot of work to do to even get into the playoffs.

Lowry started 12 of the first 15 games this season. He has 43 tackles, a half-sack, and five quarterback hits in those appearances.

Melton was a Seahawks seventh-round pick this year and he’s spent the entire regular season on their practice squad. He had 164 catches for 2,011 receiving yards while at Rutgers.
