The Green Bay Packers have released receiver Adrian Coxson, who was taken by ambulance during the third practice of training camp on Aug. 1 and eventually diagnosed with a concussion.

Coxson, 23, hadn't been present at practice since the incident. The 6-foot-1, 209-pound receiver signed with the Packers for a $5,000 signing bonus after going undrafted in May. He spent his final three collegiate seasons at Stony Brook after transferring from Maryland in 2011.

Coxson played in 35 games with 19 starts, finishing his career with 82 receptions for 1,335 yards (16.3 avg.) and touchdowns. He's the fourth member of the Packers' 2015 undrafted class they've already parted with (receiver Ricky Collins, guard Marcus Reed and cornerback Bernard Blake).

The Packers will need to agree to an injury settlement with Coxson if he has yet to be cleared by team doctors.

Green Bay's roster stands at 87. and follow him on Twitter @WesHod.
