The Packers and Hanson (shin) have come to terms on an injury settlement, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Hanson injured his shin in the Packers' second preseason game against the Patriots. He was then waived/injured by the team before subsequently reverting to their IR after going unclaimed. Now, instead of spending the rest of the season on the sideline, the center will be able to look for a new opportunity once his health is back up to par.
