Shark Bites

Matt Schneidman of The Athletic writes that Packers TE Robert Tonyan “may not be ready to play Week 1.” Schneidman adds that he’d be surprised if Tonyan isn’t ready to play by Week 6. The veteran tore his ACL at the end of October, so he’ll be ~10.5 months removed from the injury come Week 1. Tonyan’s not a particularly desirable TE2, even if he’s ready for the opener.

Wes Hodkiewicz of Packers.com writes that the team feels “fine” about their TE situation. He notes that Robert Tonyan is making “significant progress” with ACL rehab. (Tonyan tore his ACL last October.) Interestingly, GM Brian Gutekunst shouted out TE Tyler Davis, a 2020 UDFA who played 121 snaps last season. “I think we might have found something there,” Gutekunst remarked. Tonyan, 28, posted 5 games with 10 or fewer yards prior to the injury. Don’t count on a major rebound.

The Packers re-signed TE Robert Tonyan to a 1-year deal. Tonyan is rehabbing a late-October ACL tear but should be ready for the start of the 2022 season. He came out of nowhere for a 52-586-11 line in 2020 but was sitting just 24th among TEs in PPR points through the first 7 weeks of last year. Tonyan has a shot to grab a larger target share this season with WR Davante Adams' departure.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan tore his left ACL in Thursday night's win over the Cardinals, his agent announced Friday. Tonyan will miss the rest of the season but has a good shot to be ready for the start of the 2022 campaign. His absence leaves the Packers with TEs Marcedes Lewis and Josiah Deguara. We'll monitor that situation, but neither guy is worth adding to fantasy rosters right now.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan hurt his left knee in the 3rd quarter of Thursday night's game vs. the Cardinals. He was in obvious pain but was at least able to get off the field under his own power. We'll update Tonyan's status when we know more.

The Packers have tendered TE Robert Tonyan at the 2nd-round level, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. That means if another team signs the restricted free agent to an offer sheet, Green Bay could match the offer or get a 2nd-round pick from the new team as compensation. We'll see whether any team likes Tonyan enough to go after him.
