Nov. 18 (UPI) -- The Green Bay Packers have promoted fullback Joe Kerridge from the practice squad to the active roster.

Green Bay also activated tackle Jason Spriggs from injured reserve and placed tackle Bryan Bulaga on injured reserve. Packers executive vice president, general manager and director of football operations Ted Thompson announced the moves on Saturday.

Kerridge, 25, entered the NFL in 2016 as an undrafted free agent signing by the Washington Redskins.

The 6 foot, 245 pound fullback spent a short time with the Redskins' practice squad before signing with the Packers' practice squad on Oct. 3, 2016. He signed to the Packers' active roster on Nov. 7, 2016. Kerridge landed on injured reserve on Sept. 2 before being released. He was signed to the Packers' practice squad again on Oct. 30. Kerridge primarily played on special teams last season for the Packers.

He had one rush for no yards on his only career carry and has appeared in eight games.

Spriggs, 23, has appeared in 17 games for the Packers and started twice. The 6 foot 6, 301 pound offensive lineman has one career fumble recovery. He was a second round pick by the Packers in the 2016 NFL Draft. Spriggs played in the Packers' season opener but was inactive for Week 2.
