Dillon recorded 46 carries for 242 yards and two touchdowns and two receptions for 21 yards over 11 appearances in 2020. Dillon played a bit role for most of the season, and he missed five games following a positive test for COVID-19. However, the 2020 second-round pick averaged a healthy 5.3 yards per carry over the course of the season, and he shined in his one extended opportunity, tallying 124 yards and two scores on the ground in the Packers' Week 16 victory over the Titans. It will be tough to determine Dillon's 2021 role without knowing if free agents Aaron Jones and/or Jamaal Williams will return to Green Bay, but if neither comes back, Dillon will presumably find himself atop the depth chart -- a spot that has been rather fantasy-friendly since head coach Matt LaFleur arrived in town.
Dillon (quadricep) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. The quad injury limited Dillon's practice participation but won't impact his availability for the NFC Championship Game. He took six carries for 27 yards in a 32-18 divisional-round win over Los Angeles last week, playing 12 percent of Green Bay's snaps on offense.
Dillon (quadricep) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Olivia Reiner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Dillon was knocked out of the later stages of the Packers' divisional-round win against the Rams with a quad issue, which so far has resulted in a cap on his practice reps this week. Coach Matt LaFleur told Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette on Monday that he's "hopeful" Dillon will be able to suit up for Sunday's NFC Championship Game versus the Buccaneers. With two practices under his belt, Dillon is trending in the right direction, but Friday's injury report may give a sense of whether or not that's the case.
The Packers listed Dillon (quadriceps) as a limited participant in practice Wednesday. Dillon was forced out of last weekend's divisional-round win over the Rams after handling just six carries (for 27 yards), so it's encouraging to see him already back on the practice field in some capacity. If the rookie running back is able to prove his health in time for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Buccaneers, he'll rank as the third option in a backfield headlined by Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams.
Coach Matt LaFleur said Monday that he's "hopeful" Dillon (quadriceps) will be "ready to go" for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Buccaneers, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports. LaFleur also said he's unsure whether Dillon will be on the field when the Packers next practice Wednesday, per Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The rookie running back only handled six carries for 27 yards during the divisional-round win over the Rams before being forced out with a quad injury. Jamaal Williams will stand to handle slightly more reps behind top back Aaron Jones if Dillon isn't ready to face the Buccaneers.
