Packers punter JK Scott becomes new dad

The punter of the Green Bay Packers is now a father.

Packers.com's Wes Hodkiewicz reports that J.K. Scott's wife "gave birth to a healthy baby boy" Monday.

According to Hodkiewicz, Scott received the call right as the Packers were departing New England after the team's 31-17 loss to the Patriots.

The Packers had signed, but then released punter Drew Kaser as an insurance policy in case Kiser's wife went into labor and the Packers' team plane had to fly him back.
