The Green Bay Packers placed rookie running back Johnathan Franklin on injured reserve, promoting linebacker Victor Aiyewa from the practice squad.

Franklin is out for the season due to a concussion.

Franklin rushed for 107 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries.

He gained 103 of his yards against the Cincinnati Bengals early in the season.

While Franklin hasn't emerged as a consistent threat, second-rounder Eddie Lacy has provided power and production.
