Jake Ryan: Let go by Ravens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ravens released Ryan (hamstring) with a non-football injury designation Thursday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Ryan missed the entire 2018 campaign due to an ACL tear, and he only managed to participate in two games in 2019 -- both with the Jaguars -- while being relegated to special teams before being sidelined with a hamstring issue. The 28-year-old will now focus on making a full recovery before trying to garner a chance with another club, where he'll likely be forced to settle for a depth role.

Ravens' Jake Ryan: Joining Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan (hamstring) signed a one-year deal with the Ravens on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

When healthy, Ryan is an effective run stopper. The linebacker has tallied 213 combined tackles across five seasons, and his signing provides the Ravens defense with some much-needed experience. That being said, Ryan missed the first 12 games of 2019 with a knee injury, and ultimately played just two games of the entire season, exclusively on special teams, before hitting injured reserve, this time with a hamstring injury.

Jake Ryan: Heads to free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars declined to pick up Ryan's (hamstring) 2020 option, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Ryan missed the first 12 games of 2019 due to a knee injury, and after returning to action for two contests, he was placed on season-ending injured reserve with a hamstring injury. Over those two games, he only played on special teams. This move will save the Jaguars $6 million in cap space. Ryan hasn't played a full season since 2017 with the Packers, and he'll likely seek a reserve role elsewhere.

Jaguars' Jake Ryan: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Michael DiRocco of reports.

An offseason signing by the Jaguars, Ryan will finish his first season in Jacksonville with 35 special teams snaps and no tackles in two games. The Jaguars signed free agent Dakota Allen to bolster their middle linebacker depth now that Ryan is done for the rest of the season.

Jaguars' Jake Ryan: No timetable for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Marrone said Monday that Ryan (hamstring) will be sidelined "indefinitely," John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Ryan exited Sunday's loss to the Chargers in the second quarter and did not retake the field. Wednesday's first injury report of the week should shed some light on the depth linebacker's status, but he appears to be trending toward sitting out Week 15's tilt in Oakland. Joe Giles-Harris stands to play an expanded depth role as long as Ryan is unable to go.

Jaguars' Jake Ryan: Exits Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan (hamstring) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Titans.

The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but Ryan was forced to exit the game in the second quarter. As long as he's sidelined, Joe Giles-Harris would be the likely beneficiary to see an uptick in snaps as a depth linebacker.

Jaguars' Jake Ryan: Activated by Jags
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan (knee) was activated from the reserve/non-football injury list Saturday, Tad Dickman of the Jaguars' public relations reports.

Ryan suffered a setback on his surgically repaired right knee in July and was subsequently placed on the NFI list prior to Week 1. It appears he is finally ready to make his season debut, but it remains to be seen what type of workload he will see out the gate. The 27-year-old could potentially retake his starting job at weak-side linebacker sooner than later.

Jaguars' Jake Ryan: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Marrone said Monday that he expects Ryan (knee) to participate in practice, Michael DiRocco of reports.

Marrone also said that he expects Ryan to come off the non-football injury list, but he did not offer an official timetable for the linebacker's return. Ryan has been sidelined the entire season while recovering from a setback in his surgically repaired right knee. When back to full health, the 27-year-old could retake his starting gig at weak-side linebacker.

Jaguars' Jake Ryan: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan (knee) was shifted to the regular-season non-football injury list Saturday.

Ryan landed on the NFI list in July and was managing a setback with his surgically repaired right knee, and he's still recovering at the start of the regular season. The 27-year-old suffered the ACL tear in the 2018 preseason, and the specifics of his setback remain unclear, though it didn't require additional surgery. Ryan has no official timetable for his return but he now won't be eligible to play until after Week 6.

Jaguars' Jake Ryan: Managing setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Marrone said Thursday that Ryan (knee) had "a setback during summer" resulting in his placement on the non-football injury list, Phillip Heilman of The Athletic reports.

The nature of Ryan's setback remains undisclosed, though Phillip Heilman reports that he is not expected to require surgery. The linebacker is working his way back from an ACL tear sustained during the 2018 preseason, and he will be unable to practice until he receives medical clearance. If he's able to return to full health without any more setbacks, Ryan is expected to start at weak-side linebacker.

Jaguars' Jake Ryan: Placed on Active/NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan (knee) was officially placed on the Jaguars' Active/Non-Football Injury list Tuesday, John Oehser of the team's official website reports.

Ryan has been recovering from an ACL tear sustained during the 2018 preseason list. His presence on the Active/NFI list means he will be able to return to practice at any time once he is medically cleared. The 27-year-old is currently projected to start at weak-side linebacker for the Jaguars, but his health will certainly be a factor in the final decision.

Jaguars' Jake Ryan: Progressing in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jaguars' Jake Ryan: Takes deal with Jaguars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Packers' Jake Ryan: Future in Green Bay uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Packers' Jake Ryan: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan was placed on injured reserve Monday, the team's official site reports.

Ryan's trip to the IR was inevitable after he was carted off the practice field last Monday and ultimately diagnosed with a torn ACL. He'll endure a lengthy road to recovery after undergoing surgery to repair the knee, but he could be ready for training camp in 2019. Expect rookie third-rounder Oren Burks to have an inside route to a starting role at inside linebacker next to Blake Martinez for the Packers this season.

Packers' Jake Ryan: Diagnosed with ACL tear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan (knee) was diagnosed Wednesday with a torn ACL, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Ryan will require surgery to address the injury, ending his season more than a month before it even began. His absence will force Green Bay will need to find another starter at inside linebacker next to Blake Martinez. The Packers would like to see rookie third-round pick Oren Burks seize the opportunity, as the depth chart otherwise consists of young, undrafted players. Ryan played 507 snaps on defense and 211 on special teams in 15 games last season, notching 81 tackles and the first sack of his career. He'll become a free agent next winter with his rookie contract coming to an end after the 2018 campaign.

Packers' Jake Ryan: Injures knee Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Packers' Jake Ryan: Working with starters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Packers' Jake Ryan: Hampered by hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan (hamstring) was held back during Tuesday's mandatory minicamp, Rob Demovsky of reports.

Ryan has back-to-back, 80-tackle seasons under his belt, but more competition has arrived in Green Bay. Versatile LB Oren Burks from Vanderbilt was drafted in the third round and could press for snaps. However, Ryan's focus at the moment is getting healthy, and there isn't a clear timeline for his recovery.

Packers' Jake Ryan: Totals 81 tackles in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan made 81 tackles (52 solo) and recorded a sack over 15 games during the 2017 season.

Ryan played one more game than he did in 2016, but he fell just one stop short of tying the career-high 82 tackles he put up a year ago. He finished second among Packers inside linebackers in defensive snaps each of the last two seasons, and he figures to get a chance to again be the No. 2 man at his position in 2018.
