Packers placed LB Rob Francois on injured reserve with a torn right Achilles' tendon, ending his season.

Francois was a special teamer and Green Bay's No. 3 inside 'backer behind Brad Jones and A.J. Hawk. He's eligible for unrestricted free agency in 2014.

Packers ILB Rob Francois sustained a torn right Achilles' tendon in Sunday's Week 5 win over the Lions.

Francois, a standout special teamer, was forced into rare defensive snaps Sunday thanks to Brad Jones' hamstring injury. He's likely out for the season. "I feel terrible about Robert's situation. He was the first one to step up," coach Mike McCarthy said. The only healthy inside linebackers on the Packers right now are A.J. Hawk, Jamari Lattimore and rookie Sam Barrington.

Packers LB Rob Francois was forced from Green Bay's Week 5 game against the Lions with a right ankle injury, and is doubtful to return.

It's a concern because Francois was filling in for Brad Jones, who suffered a hamstring injury. Jamari Lattimore is now in the game opposite A.J. Hawk.

The Packers are close to re-signing LB Rob Francois to a one-year contract.

Francois, who turns 28 in May, racked up nine special teams tackles in Green Bay last season. Not a defensive contributor, he'll play the same role in 2013.

Restricted free agent ILB Rob Francois is not expected to be tendered an offer by the Packers.

Francois appeared in all 16 games for the Packers last season, but he didn't play a single snap on defense. The special-teamer recorded 13 tackles, and the $1.323 million low tender is too rich for Green Bay's taste. However, Francois isn't ruling out a return at the veteran's minimum.
