LB So'oto rejoins Packers 2 days after release


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Two days after releasing him, the Green Bay Packers have signed linebacker Vic So'oto to their practice squad.

So'oto was released Tuesday to make room for defensive tackle Jordan Miller. The Packers needed more depth after playing Sunday night's game against Detroit with just four defensive linemen. So'oto's return Thursday was expected, and his locker was left untouched while he cleared waivers.

So'oto appeared in one game for the Packers this season and four with the Oakland Raiders. He signed with the Packers in July 2011 as an undrafted free agent out of Brigham Young, and played seven games as a rookie.
