The Green Bay Packers received some good news about their backfield situation with Eddie Lacy (concussion) and Johnathan Franklin (foot) each returning to the field during Monday’s first team practice after the bye week.

Running back James Starks still was sidelined with the knee injury he sustained in the first half of the Packers’ 34-30 loss to Cincinnati two weeks ago. The Packers used the roster spot vacated by Jeremy Ross’ release last week to promote rookie Michael Hill from the practice squad.

Safety Morgan Burnett (hamstring) was the only injured defensive back to return to practice after missing three games with a hamstring injury. Casey Hayward (hamstring) and Jarrett Bush (hamstring) were still out, along with linebacker Clay Matthews (hamstring), fullback John Kuhn (hamstring) and tight end Jermichael Finley (concussion), who was on the sideline during practice.

To fill Hill’s spot on the practice squad, the Packers signed 5-foot-9 wide receiver/returner Reggie Dunn, who signed with Pittsburgh as a non-drafted free agent in May 2013 and appeared in all four preseason contests for the Steelers.

As a senior at Utah in 2012, Dunn returned 10 kickoffs for 513 yards (51.3 avg.) and a school-record four TDs on his way to earning first-team All-Pacific-12 honors as a kick returner.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy is scheduled to meet with the media at approximately 4:15 p.m.
