Packers place OL Spitz on injured reserve with lower back problems

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Packers have ended Jason Spitz's season, placing the offensive lineman on injured reserve Saturday with a lower back injury that has been slow to heal.

The center/guard appeared in five games this season as part of an offensive line that has yielded an NFL-worst 31 sacks.

The Packers also signed wide receiver Biren Ealy from the practice squad. He appeared in four games with Tennessee in 2007 and spent the 2008 season on the Titans' practice squad.
