GREEN BAY, Wisconsin — Former Boston College quarterback Chase Rettig is among seven players who have been released by the Green Bay Packers with the first deadline for roster cuts approaching.

Also released Sunday were: safety Charles Clay, cornerback Antonio Dennard, linebacker Korey Jones, fullback Ina Liaina, and receivers Chris Harper and Gerrard Sheppard.

Rettig was an undrafted rookie free agent. Barring injury, he faced a tough time making the Packers' active roster.

Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien will likely split time in Green Bay's preseason finale Thursday night against Kansas City. They back up Aaron Rodgers.

NFL teams must cut rosters down to 75 players by Tuesday afternoon.

The Packers are also facing the loss of defensive lineman B.J. Raji, who had his right arm in a sling at Sunday's practice.
