In a week that's seen multiple roster moves, there were new faces and different roles on the field when the Green Bay Packers held practice on a chilly Wednesday afternoon.

Green Bay Packers defensive end Datone Jones, left, leaves the field after injuring an ankle during the second quarter of the game against the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field on Oct. 2.

No longer is receiver Kevin Dorsey in the No. 6 jersey. The second-year wideout is wearing No. 13 after being promoted from the practice squad to the active roster earlier this week.

The Packers announced the signing of guard Jordan McCray to the practice squad just minutes before practice began. McCray was on Clarke Hinkle Field, as were two other new practice squad members, defensive end Joe Kruger and cornerback Tay Glover-Wright.

Overall, the Packers are pretty healthy. Receiver Jarrett Boykin began his second week of missed practices because of a groin injury, probably the reason Dorsey was promoted to the 53-man roster. Defensive end Datone Jones also was held out of practice with an ankle injury sustained Thursday against the Minnesota Vikings.

Jones still was plenty engaged, giving tips to Kruger between drills.

Defensive tackle Josh Boyd returned to practice after being sidelined with a knee injury. Linebacker Sam Barrington also returned to practice after missing time with a hamstring injury.

Coach Mike McCarthy was scheduled to speak with the media after practice.
