GREEN BAY, Wis. (WSAW) - An already banged-up receiver group for the Packers has taken another blow. Green Bay placed wide receiver Sammy Watkins on Injured Reserve Saturday with a hamstring injury.

Watkins, who was already previously ruled out for Sunday’s game at Tampa Bay, will now miss at least four games. The first-year Packer led the team in receiving yards in last week’s win over Chicago with 93.

The Packers have added Patrick Taylor to the 53-man roster as a result. Practice squad receiver Juwann Winfree will also be active for Green Bay Sunday.

The Packers play the Buccaneers Sunday at 3:25 p.m.
