Francies Gets Promoted, Brewster Gets Another Chance

As speculated here at yesterday -- and let's be honest, you didn't have to be a rocket scientist to figure it out -- the Packers promoted rookie wide receiver Chris Francies from the team's practice squad to the regular roster, replacing Koren Robinson (who will be sitting out his suspension for the next year). Francies was installed as the #4 receiver. The Packers also re-signed Carlton Brewster to the practice squad to take Francies' spot. Brewster was also with the team during training camp. You can read the announcement from the team here.
