Replaces Leon Washington as team's change-of-pace back. QUOTE TO NOTE: "He's a really explosive back. I mean one cut, downhill, runs through arm tackles, really good balance on contact.

03/24/17 - RB Christine Michael re-signed with the Packers on Thursday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Michael joins converted WR Ty Montgomery as the lone running backs on the roster.
Michael was claimed off waivers on Nov. 16 with Green Bay dealing with injuries to Eddie Lacy and James Starks. Lacy has signed a one-year contract with the Seattle Seahawks. Starks was released.
Michael provided a change of pace for Montgomery last season. The 26-year-old Michael had a 42-yard touchdown run against the Chicago Bears in Week 15 to highlight an otherwise pedestrian six-game stretch with Green Bay.
01/21/17 - RB Christine Michael of the Green Bay Packers was added to the injury report as questionable for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Atlanta Falcons. Michael's status remains in doubt because of a lingering back injury. He has primarily served as the third-string tailback behind Ty Montgomery and Aaron Ripkowski, but also has been used to return kickoffs.
11/29/16 - RB Christine Michael made his debut for the Packers, gaining 4 yards on one carry Monday at Philadelphia. He was claimed off waivers from Seattle on Nov. 15 after rushing for 469 yards and scoring six TDs for the Seahawks.
11/29/16 - RB Christine Michael made his Packers debut Monday. He didn't come into the game on offense until Green Bay's first series in the second half and played only a couple of snaps, getting one carry for four yards. Green Bay claimed the fourth-year pro off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks two weeks ago, and he was held out of the loss at the Washington Redskins on Nov. 20.
11/21/16 - RB Christine Michael was deactivated for his first game with the Packers in the lopsided loss at Washington on Sunday night. That came as no surprise since Michael didn't join the team until Thursday after Green Bay claimed the fourth-year pro off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks. McCarthy indicated Monday that Michael should be ready to contribute in the next game, Nov. 28 at Philadelphia.
11/18/16 - RB Christine Michael practiced with the Packers on Thursday, only a few hours after he arrived in Green Bay following his redeye flight from Seattle. Green Bay claimed the fourth-year pro off waivers from the Seahawks on Wednesday. Michael said after practice that he pored over the playbook before going to practice. Up in the air is whether he'll be enough of a quick study for the Packers to activate him for the game Sunday night at Washington. "I'll dive into the playbook, just try to help contribute," he said. "If it's on special teams, if it's carrying the ball, blocking, whatever it is, I'm just here to contribute. I'm just going to get me a playbook as soon as possible and learn as much as possible and see where it goes."
11/14/16 - RB Christine Michael passed his pregame test and was active Sunday. He finished with five carries for 22 yards.
10/05/16 - RB Christine Michael has rushed for 290 yards through the first month of the season, which puts him 10th in the league in rushing.
09/26/16 - RB Christine Michael scored his first two career touchdowns Sunday, and there was a time when it didn't look as if he ever would get one.
Michael was traded by the Seahawks before the 2015 season, then he got released by both the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins before landing back in Seattle late in the year. A shin injury to Thomas Rawls left him as the primary runner Sunday, and Michael responded by running for 106 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries.
09/18/16 - RB Christine Michael was the game's leading rusher with 60 yards on 10 carries. However, Michael fumbled after catching a pass from QB Russell Wilson, and Rams MLB Alec Ogletree recovered with 57 seconds remaining to seal the win for Los Angeles.
