Pepper suffered a broken foot in practice Thursday. Brice injured his ankle during the Packers’ loss the the New Orleans Saints Oct. 22.

Biegel, a fourth-round pick out of Wisconsin, was placed on the physically unable to perform list to start his rookie year. He looks to make his NFL debut.

Hart, who was with Green Bay in training camp but released Aug. 28, will take over the long snapping role.

Pepper was with the Packers through a part of the offseason program but was released after rookie minicamp. He was re-signed Sept. 25 after veteran long snapper Brett Goode was injured in Green Bay’s 27-24 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 3.

In Pepper’s four games with Green Bay, kicker Mason Crosby was 10 of 12 on extra points and made three of four field-goal attempts.
