Ryan (knee) worked on the side during Thursday's practice, Phillip Heilman of The Florida Times-Union reports. Ryan is making his way back from an ACL tear he suffered in the preseason before the 2018 campaign, but is expected to compete with Myles Jack for the starting middle linebacker role when healthy. The Michigan product racked up 163 total tackles over two seasons as a starter at inside linebacker for the Packers.
Ryan (knee) agreed to a one-year contract Saturday with the Jaguars, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Ryan is still recovering from a preseason ACL tear that forced him to miss the entire 2018 season, but he's expected to compete for the starting middle linebacker spot should he return to form. In two seasons as one of the starting inside linebackers for the Packers, Ryan racked up 163 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble.
Ryan (knee) may not re-sign with the Packers this offseason, Mike Spofford of the team's official site reports. Ryan missed the entire 2018 season -- the final year of his rookie contract -- due to an ACL injury sustained in training camp. After posting over 80 tackles in both 2016 and 2017, the 26-year-old now is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason. While Ryan should draw a solid market in free agency if the Packers don't re-sign him, it's worth noting that the inside linebacker still faces a lengthy road to recovery.
Ryan was carted off the field during Monday's practice after suffering a potentially serious knee injury, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports. Ryan spent several minutes on the ground and was ultimately unable to put much weight on his injured right leg, so the possibility of a severe issue is evident. The inside linebacker had been working with the first team next to Blake Martinez, while Ahmad Thomas and Oren Burks got most of the second-team work. Additional updates regarding Ryan's injury should be available within the next few days.
Ryan worked with the starting defense during the opening day of training camp, Zach Heilprin of WHTQ 96.7 FM reports. Like last season, Ryan lined up alongside Blake Martinez at inside linebacker to open camp. However, Martinez, who tied for the league lead in tackles last season, has been the more effective player of the two over the past couple of seasons, so if third-round rookie Oren Burks begins to impress during training camp, Ryan is likely the one who'll receive the demotion. With that said, defensive coordinator Mike Pettine could get creative with his personnel in different packages this season, so Ryan will likely log a significant number of defensive snaps regardless of his formal slotting on the depth chart.
