Packers release returner Jeremy Ross after muff

Posted:
GREEN BAY (AP) -

The Packers have released receiver and return man Jeremy Ross a day after the second-year player muffed a kickoff that set up a touchdown in the wild 34-30 loss to the Bengals.

Ross failed to make a significant impact in the return game. BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran for a 2-yard score to give Cincinnati a 14-0 lead on the play after Ross muffed the kickoff early in the first quarter.

Ross also fumbled a punt return in the second quarter of the Packers' 45-31 loss to the 49ers in the NFC playoffs last year. San Francisco recovered and scored three players later.

In eight career games in Green Bay, Ross had one catch for 8 yards. He played the final five games of the 2012 regular season.
