Ryan (knee) is active Sunday against the Panthers.
A knee injury landed Ryan on the injury report leading up to Week 15, but with limited practice sessions Thursday and Friday, it was expected that the third-year linebacker would suit up. Having logged six or more combined tackles in four straight weeks, Ryan provides a decent floor as an IDP.
Ryan (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Ryan was a limited participant in practices Thursday and Friday. It's expected that Ryan will be able to take the field Sunday, but if he ends up sitting out, Joe Thomas and Kyler Fackrell could pick up increased snaps at inside linebacker in Ryan's stead.
Ryan (neck, illness) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Jason Wilde of ESPN.com reports.
In addition to hurting his neck in the Packers' Week 13 win over the Buccaneers, Ryan was also dealing with flu-like symptoms to begin Week 14 preparations, with the two ailments conspiring to keep him out of practice Wednesday. A day to recuperate was seemingly all Ryan needed though, so look for him to step back into a starting role at inside linebacker Sunday in Cleveland. Ryan has made some noise for IDP owners over the last three weeks, producing 25 tackles and a sack during that stretch.
Ryan injured his neck in Sunday's game against the Buccaneers and did not return to the game, Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
Ryan racked up five tackles before exiting. If Ryan is forced to miss extended time, Joe Thomas will likely see a starter's share of snaps at inside linebacker alongside Blake Martinez.
Ryan left Week 7's game against the Saints with a migraine, but his absence from the injury report this week makes it seem like the linebacker is past the head issue. Look for him to resume his regular starting role Monday against the Lions, as he has 25 tackles (11 solo) this season.
