GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It would appear that Mason Crosby has won the Green Bay Packers' kicking competition. As part of the Packers' roster cuts to get down to 75 players by Tuesday's deadline, Green Bay released kicker Zach Ramirez. After cutting their original challenger, Giorgio Tavecchio, on Monday, it leaves only one kicker left on the roster: Crosby. Crosby soundly defeated Ramirez in a head-to-head kicking competition in Tuesday's practice, which made the Packers' decision much easier. Crosby was 14 for 14 in his field-goal attempts, while Ramirez made just 6 of 16. Ramirez was the only player that Green Bay actually released. Entering the day with 84 players on the roster, the other eight moves were all injury-related. Offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga, running back DuJuan Harris, wide receiver Kevin Dorsey and outside linebacker Jarvis Reed were all placed on injured reserve, so their seasons are over. Offensive linemen Derek Sherrod and JC Tretter, safety Sean Richardson and defensive lineman Jerel Worthy were placed on the reserve physically unable to perform (PUP) list. That means, if healthy, Sherrod, Tretter, Richardson and Worthy can return to practice after Week 6 of the regular season. The Packers will then have until after Week 11 to determine whether to place them on the active roster or put them on injured reserve. Green Bay has to get down from 75 players to its final 53-man roster by Saturday, Aug. 31 at 5 p.m. Follow Paul Imig on Twitter
