Wide receiver Sederrick Cunningham was released by the Green Bay Packers on Friday, according to the NFL's transaction wire.
Cunningham didn't even last through one full training camp practice after dislocating his left wrist on the first day of camp last July. He had surgery almost immediately and was placed on injured reserve, where he spent the remainder of the season.
The Packers avoid having to pay Cunningham an injury settlement, like they would have had they released him last season when he was first injured.
Cunningham was signed to the Packers roster last April after being out of football for a full year.
The Packers are short on wide receiver depth after releasing Cunningham and James Jones left the team in free agency last month, but they figure to add several either during the upcoming NFL Draft or sign several as undrafted free agents not long after.
