Packers place Allison on IR, release Whitehead

The Packers have placed wide receiver on injured reserve, the team announced Tuesday.

They’ve also released safety Jermaine Whitehead.

In addition, the team signed CB Will Redmond to the active roster and linebacker Brady Sheldon to the practice squad.
