Summers had four tackles (two solo) in 16 games during 2019.
The rookie seventh-round pick saw action in all 18 games (including postseason) but was limited to special teams during all but one contest. The team's top inside linebackers, Blake Martinez and B.J. Goodson, are both set to be unrestricted free agents in March, but it still seems unlikely Summers will enter training camp competing for more than a depth role.
Summers practiced all week and has been cleared by the league's concussion protocol, Olivia Reiner of The Journal Sentinel reports.
Summers left in the first half of Green Bay's last game but has had an extra week of rest, thanks to the bye week, and appears set to play Sunday. Assuming he's active, Summers will feature primarily on special teams.
Summers suffered a concussion and won't return to Sunday's game against the Panthers, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Summers exited the contest in the first half and didn't return after halftime. He works as a reserve behind Blake Martinez and B.J. Goodson, and most of the rookie's contributions come on special teams. He'll look to utilize the upcoming bye in order to be ready for Week 12's matchup against the 49ers.
Summers left Sunday's game against the Panthers and is being evaluated for a concussion.
Summers was on the wrong end of a direct head-to-head hit late in the second quarter and needed help getting to the sideline. He'll need to be cleared from the NFL's independent neurologist in order to return to action. In his stead, Oren Burks is in line to see an uptick in depth linebacker snaps.
Summers will enter the starting lineup for Thursday's game in Chicago.
A 2019 seventh-round pick, Summers did everything in his power to endear himself to the coaching staff during the preseason, posting 10 tackles in two of four contests. With Oren Burks still tending to a partially torn pectoral, Summers is getting the first shot to start next to IDP maven Blake Martinez.
Summers had five tackles (three solo) and returned an interception 74 yards for a touchdown in Thursday's preseason finale.
Summers hit the 10-tackle mark twice over the Packers' first three preseason games, and he made a big play in his final chance to impress his coaches. He has done about all he can to come away with a spot on the Packers' roster for Week 1.
Summers had 10 tackles (nine solo) in Thursday's preseason loss to the Ravens.
Summers accumulated 10 tackles for the second time in three preseason games, so he's faring well in the output department. The Packers are pretty banged up at the inside linebacker position, so Summers -- an undrafted free agent -- is in decent position to earn a roster spot.
Summers had 10 tackles (nine solo) in Thursday's preseason opener.
Summers missed some time in OTAs with a hamstring injury, but he has not been slowed during training camp, and was able to get on the field for the Packers' first exhibition game. He had one of the best nights of any Packer, easily leading the team in tackles and also snaps, according to Matt Schneidman of The Athletic. Summers still has some work to do to lock up a spot on the roster coming out of training camp, but his chances to make the cut are looking good after his first shot to show what he can do in live action.
Summers didn't participate in Wednesday's OTA practice due to a hamstring injury, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
A seventh-round pick in April, Summers is competing for a reserve role in the Packers' linebacking corps. He'll need to shake off the injury by the time training camp rolls around to ensure he wins a spot on the Week 1 roster.
The Packers selected Summers in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 226th overall.
Well, it took until the Packers' last draft pick, but they finally added a middle linebacker in the form of Summers. The TCU product struggled in pass coverage, primarily providing value as a pass-rushing inside linebacker and two-down thumper, so it's safe to say 2018 third-round pick Oren Burks should be considered the frontrunner to start opposite Blake Martinez despite failing to impress in limited work during his rookie campaign.
