The Green Bay Packers released kicker Zach Ramirez Tuesday, just three days after signing him to compete for the starting extra point and field goal job with Mason Crosby.

Ramirez' release leaves Crosby as the only kicker on the Packers roster heading into their final pre-season game in Kansas City Thursday night.

The Packers also placed tackle Bryan Bulaga, wide receiver Kevin Dorsey, running back DuJuan Harris and linebacker Jarvis Reed on injured reserve, meaning they'll miss the entire 2013 season.

Four others were placed on the reserve/physically unable to perform list - safety Sean Richardson, tackle Derek Sherrod, tackle JC Tretter and defensive end Jerel Worthy.
