Help at wide receiver is arriving for the Green Bay Packers ahead of Sunday’s showdown with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Packers activated receiver Equanimeous St. Brown from injured reserve to the 53-man roster on Saturday.

St. Brown originally went on injured reserve with a knee injury on Sept. 19. The third-year receiver missed three games but returned to practice on Monday.

St. Brown caught 21 passes for 328 yards over 12 games as a rookie in 2018 but then missed his entire second season with a significant ankle injury. He hasn’t appeared in a regular-season game since Dec. 23, 2018.

St. Brown joins Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Darrius Shepherd and Malik Taylor as receivers on the Packers’ 53-man roster. Allen Lazard is on injured reserve.

The Packers did not activate linebacker Kamal Martin, who also returned to practice on Monday.
