GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – After wrapping up Training Camp earlier in the week, the Packers are closing in on final decisions for the 53-man roster to begin the 2020 season.

Cut day will look slightly different this year, with only 27 players as opposed to the usual 37 being left off the 53-man roster. However, the practice squad has been expanded to a limit of 16 players.

Green Bay is expected to have its practice squad set by 5 p.m. Sunday, before general manager Brian Gutekunst addresses the media.

Local 5 will have full coverage of cut day on air and online, and this story will be updated as new leaks on roster cuts come in.
