GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- The Green Bay Packers claimed defensive lineman Fadol Brown off waivers from the Oakland Raiders, claimed cornerback Natrell Jamerson off waivers from the Houston Texans and placed running back Tra Carson and cornerback Kevin King on injured reserve.

King, a second-round pick in 2017 out of Washington, played in six games this season and had one interception, which clinched a 33-30 win against the 49ers. King has been sidelined the last four games with a hamstring injury.

Jamerson (5-11, 201) was selected 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.
