ESPN.com is reporting that the Green Bay Packers have released wide receiver Jeremy Ross after his first quarter fumble against the Bengals. Mike McCarthy possibly wanting to send a message to his team, sacrificed the young wide receiver.

It was Ross’ second botch return in the last four games dating back to last season. Aaron Rodgers curses Mike McCarthy out, McCarthy fires a 4th string receiver.
