Derrick Martin's season is over. Robert Francois' season is just getting started.
The Green Bay Packers placed the safety on season-ending injured reserve after Martin sustained a knee injury in Sunday's loss at Washington.
With injuries at linebacker - Nick Barnett is expected to have wrist surgery today and Brandon Chillar's status remains in doubt because of a shoulder injury - the Packers promoted Francois from the practice squad.
The Packers also added two players to the practice squad: safety Mike Greco and linebacker Mike Rivera.
Greco (6-3, 224) is a rookie who was with the New York Giants in training camp as an undrafted free agent from Central Flordia.
Rivera (6-2, 245) spent the entire 2009 season on the Tennessee Titans practice squad and was with the Titans in the preseason this year. He entered the NFL with the Chicago Bears in 2009 as an undrafted free agent from Kansas.
