The Green Bay Packers have released receiver Sed Cunningham, according to the NFL transaction wire.

The 5-foot-11, 192-pound rookie out of Furman was one of the teamís four street signings prior to last Aprilís draft, but spent the entire 2013 season on injured reserve after breaking his wrist on the first day of training camp.

He caught the Packers' eye during an offseason workout and was a possible option on returns prior to his injury. He finished at Furman with 95 receptions for 1,196 yards and seven touchdowns in 44 collegiate games from 2008-2011.

Cunninghamís injury required immediate surgery for a fractured wrist only hours after getting tied up with cornerback Micah Hyde on a go-route on July 26. He gained some notoriety for being back in the dorms roughly 12 hours after the injury first occurred.

Since his injury was season-ending and a buyout wasnít reached, Cunningham made $288,000 on injured reserve because of a split-salary clause in his contract.

With Cunninghamís release, the Packers are down to seven receivers on their offseason roster.
