The Packers made one final transaction before Sunday’s NFC Championship Game against the 49ers. Green Bay activated safety Raven Greene from the injured reserve, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN. Greene was placed on injured reserve after hurting his ankle in a Week 2 matchup against the Vikings. The Packers had one open spot remaining on their 53-man roster, so no corresponding move was necessary.

It is unclear whether Greene will play a prominent role in his first game since Week 2, but he will give defensive coordinator Mike Pettine another option to deploy against the potent 49ers offense. Before his injury, Greene had played a hybrid safety/linebacker and had received starter’s reps. In fact, he did start in Green Bay’s first game of the season before coming off the bench in Week 2.

In just his second professional season, Greene has appeared in 10 games, amassing 12 tackles, one for loss, two passes defended, one sack, one quarterback hit and one forced fumble.
