Ramiz Ahmed: Deal with Green Bay runs out
Ahmed's (groin) practice squad contract with the Packers expired Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.
Ahmed competed for a roster spot with Green Bay this preseason before getting waived as part of the team's final cuts. Ahmed then signed up with the team's practice squad ahead of the regular season, and he was elevated for two games to handle kickoffs in place of aging starting kicker Mason Crosby. However, Ahmed suffered a groin injury during his second elevation for the Week 17 win over Minnesota, leaving him inactive for the season-ending loss to Detroit the following game. Ahmed will now look to log the first field-goal attempt of his career during the 2023 regular season.... See More ... See Less
Ramiz Ahmed: Back to practice squad Monday
Ahmed (groin) reverted to the Packers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.
Ahmed was elevated from the practice squad for the second time this season ahead of Sunday's blowout win over Minnesota. The 27-year-old never actually saw the field despite being active, and he was eventually designated questionable to return to the contest with a groin injury. The nature of this issue is still unclear, but Ahmed could be in line for his last eligible practice-squad elevation in Green Bay's crucial Week 18 contest versus Detroit.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Ramiz Ahmed: Picks up injury Sunday
Ahmed (groin) is questionable to return to Sunday's game versus the Vikings.
Ahmed was elevated from the practice squad and was going to serve as the Packers' kickoff specialist ahead of this Week 17 contest. However, it appears he was injured at some point during pregame warmups, as Mason Crosby has been the only Green Bay kicker to see the field against Minnesota, according to Matt Schneidman of The Athletic....

Packers' Ramiz Ahmed: Elevated from practice squad
The Packers elevated Ahmed from their practice squad to the active roster Saturday, per the team's official site.
This is the second time Ahmed has been elevated this season, as he handled kickoffs during Green Bay's Week 10 win over Dallas while Mason Crosby retained field-goal and extra-point opportunities. The pair will likely work in the same function Sunday versus Minnesota.... See More ... See Less
Ramiz Ahmed: Reverts to practice squad
The Packers reverted Ahmed to their practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.
Ahmed was elevated to the active roster ahead of Week 10's defeat of the Cowboys. Mason Crosby maintained PAT and field-goal duties for Green Bay in the contest, but he's been dealing with a sore back, so the team elected to have Ahmed handle kickoffs. It's uncertain if that arrangement will continue Thursday against Tennessee, but either way, Ahmed is irrelevant in fantasy if he's not getting scoring opportunities.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Ramiz Ahmed: Up from practice squad
Green Bay elevated Ahmed from its practice squad to the active roster Saturday ahead of Sunday's game versus the Cowboys.
After joining the Packers' practice squad ahead of Week 1, Ahmed is set to potentially make his NFL debut in Week 10. As long as Mason Crosby is healthy though, Ahmed would likely be limited to work on kickoffs.... See More ... See Less
Ramiz Ahmed: Returns to Packers' practice squad
The Packers signed Ahmed to their practice squad Monday, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
Ahmed was let go by the team Tuesday despite converting all three field-goal attempts and all three extra-point tries during the preseason. The 27-year-old provides the Packers with an in-house alternative to promote to the active roster should top kicker Mason Crosby miss any time.... See More ... See Less
Ramiz Ahmed: Let go by Green Bay
The Packers waived Ahmed on Tuesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Ahmed joined the Packers after they placed Gabe Brkic (hamstring) on injured reserve, and the Nevada product operated as the team's starting kicker during the final two preseason games. He made all three of his field-goal attempts and all three of his extra-point tries. However, he finds himself among a wave of cuts ahead of Tuesday's 53-man roster deadline. Ahmed's release also suggests that Mason Crosby (knee) will be be activated off the PUP list and play in Week 1.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Ramiz Ahmed: Perfect in Packers debut
Ahmed made two field goals and two extra points in Friday's preseason game against the Saints.
Ahmed joined the Packers less than a week ago, and he shined in his first appearance, making all four kicks he got up, including a 45-yard attempt in the second quarter. Ahmed's hold on a roster spot will be tenuous when fellow kicker Mason Crosby is ready to go, but Crosby still has not practiced since undergoing a procedure on his knee in July, and Ahmed has given himself a chance to fill in if Crosby is unavailable for Week 1....

Packers' Ramiz Ahmed: Finds work in Green Bay
Ahmed signed a contract with the Packers on Sunday, Bill Huber of Sports Illustrated reports.
Mason Crosby (knee) remains sidelined following surgery, and Gabe Brkic (hamstring) has struggled throughout training camp, including an ugly miss during the preseason opener, so Ahmed has a good shot at sticking around Green Bay if he can provide the Packers with some consistency in the kicking department. However, the Nevada product is known for his big leg, rather than his consistency. The 27-year-old connected on a league-record 61-yard field goal while playing for the Pittsburgh Maulers of the USFL this season, but overall, he made just 14-of-22 field-goal attempts and 7-of-10 extra-point tries. If healthy, Crosby is still expected to be the starter Week 1, but Ahmed will get a shot at competing for the backup job during the remainder of training camp.... See More ... See Less
Ramiz Ahmed: Loses kicking battle
The Bears waived Ahmed on Tuesday.
The Bears are sticking with kicker Eddy Pineiro, who notably missed key kicks in 2019 but overall was around league average in conversion rate as their starter. Ahmed has about a month before Week 1 to find a new squad.... See More ... See Less
