GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Scrambling to account for a rash of injuries at safety, the Green Bay Packers have signed Matt Giordano and released Aaron Rouse.

Giordano spent the previous four seasons with Indianapolis, playing in 55 games and making six starts.

Rouse, a third-round selection in the 2007 NFL draft, played in 27 games for the Packers. He sustained a neck stinger in Sunday's loss to Cincinnati, leaving the team dangerously thin. Starting safeties Atari Bigby and Nick Collins also are injured and the timeline for their return is unclear.

The Packers also signed tackle Dane Randolph to their practice squad to replace Jamon Meredith, who was signed from the Packers' practice squad by the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday.
