The Packers placed CB Kevin King and RB Tra Carson on injured reserve Wednesday, and claimed DL Fadol Brown off waivers from the Oakland Raiders, and CB Natrell Jamerson off waivers from the Houston Texans.

King, Green Bay’s top draft choice in 2017, will now miss 17 of his first 32 career games.

Jamerson (5-11, 201) was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the fifth round (No. 164 overall) of the 2018 NFL Draft out of the University of Wisconsin. He was claimed off waivers by the Houston Texans on Sept. 2 and played in 10 games, registering five tackles (all solo), a pass defensed and two special teams tackles (one solo). Jamerson will wear No. 21 for the Packers.

Brown (6-4, 282), a first-year player out of the University of Mississippi, was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Oakland Raiders on May 5, 2017. After spending his rookie season on the Raiders’ practice squad, he played in eight games for Oakland this season, recording 17 tackles (14 solo) and a pass defensed. Brown will wear No. 98 for the Packers.
