GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - The Packers cuts are done. The roster now sits at 53 players ahead of next week’s season opener at Minnesota.

There were no huge surprises on cut-down day. The biggest news? Kicker Mason Crosby is being activated from the P.U.P. list and added to the active roster as Green Bay waived kicker Ramiz Ahmed.

While there were no seismic shakeups, there were a few cuts of note: WR Juwann Winfree did not make the team with the Packers keeping 7 receivers (including Samori Toure).

RB Tyler Goodson, DL Jack Heflin, and S Shawn Davis all had good showings in the preseason but did not make the cut.

The Packers are keeping all 11 of their draft picks.

Perhaps the biggest underdog story of this year’s cut-down is that of Micah Abernathy. The safety was brought in just 2 weeks ago and showed out with an amazing interception against the Saints. He is on the 53-man roster.

Here is the full list of roster moved the Packers made on Tuesday:
