Packers' Jace Sternberger: Handed two-game ban
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sternberger was suspended for the first two games of the 2021 season Thursday for violating the league's substance abuse policy, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

According to Sternberger's personal twitter account, the suspension stems from an incident in 2020. The Texas A&M product recorded just 12 catches last year, and he's destined for a depth role again in 2021 behind Robert Tonyan. Sternberger will be eligible to return to the team following Week 2's Monday night clash with Detroit.

Packers' Jace Sternberger: Season cut short by injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sternberger caught 12 passes for 114 yards and a touchdown over 12 regular-season games with the Packers in 2020.

Sternberger played about 30 percent of the snaps on a per-game basis for the first three quarters of the season, but he went out with a head injury in early December, and he was a healthy scratch the rest of the way after clearing the concussion protocol in early January. He hasn't quite given the Packers the production they were looking for when they selected him in the third round in 2019, but he has also dealt with injuries in both his seasons as a pro. The Packers will likely give Sternberger another shot to show what he can do in 2021, but the team has quality depth at his position, so he may need to compete for a roster spot in training camp.

Packers' Jace Sternberger: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sternberger (coach's decision) will be inactive for Saturday's matchup with the Rams, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Sternberger was a healthy scratch in the Packers' regular-season finale after clearing concussion protocol. Green Bay is opting to continue rolling with Dominique Dafney as its No. 3 tight end behind Robert Tonyan and Marcedes Lewis. As a result, Sternberger will watch the team's playoff matchup from the sidelines.

Packers' Jace Sternberger: Healthy scratch Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sternberger (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bears.

The 24-year-old cleared the concussion protocol this week after missing the past three games, but he still ended up a healthy scratch for the final game of the regular season. Robert Tonyan, Marcedes Lewis and Dominique Dafney are Green Bay's three active tight ends Sunday.

Packers' Jace Sternberger: Clears concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sternberger (concussion) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Bears, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Sternberger has cleared the league's five-step concussion protocol and will return to action after a three-game absence. Robert Tonyan has established himself as the top tight end in Green Bay's offense. Sternberger has yet to play more than 28 snaps in a game as a result.

Packers' Jace Sternberger: Remains limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sternberger (concussion) was limited during Thursday's practice session.

Since sustaining his concussion Dec. 6 during a win over Philadelphia, Sternberger has missed three consecutive games. The 24-year-old has proven capable of submitting consecutive limited sessions between Wednesday and Thursday, however, a stark improvement compared to last week, when he sat out all three of the Packers' practices. He'll still have to clear league concussion protocol, but Sternberger is trending in the right direction heading into a Sunday late afternoon kickoff at Chicago.

December 30, 2020 09:36 PM
Packers' Jace Sternberger: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sternberger (concussion) practiced in limited fashion Wednesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Sternberger has been sidelined for three consecutive games due to a concussion. His return to practice, albeit limited, is definitely a step in the right direction. Still, he will need to clear the team's concussion protocol before he has a chance to return.

Packers' Jace Sternberger: Out again Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sternberger (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Titans, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

The 24-year-old will be sidelined for the third straight game due to the concussion. Sternberger has yet to practice in any capacity since suffering the concussion Week 13, so his status for Week 17 also remains in doubt.

Packers' Jace Sternberger: Still out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sternberger (concussion/illness) was a non-participant during Thursday's practice session, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Sternberger's concussion has lingered, and an inability to gain practice clearance is beginning to threaten his Week 16 availability. The Texas A&M product initially sustained his head injury Dec. 6 during a win over the Eagles. If he's unable to rally for a Sunday night matchup against Tennessee, it would mean a third consecutive absence from Sternberger and likely increased opportunities for breakout tight end Robert Tonyan.

December 23, 2020 06:28 PM
Packers' Jace Sternberger: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sternberger (concussion/illness) did not practice Wednesday.

Sternberger has missed back-to-back games while working through the concussion protocol, and he's now also dealing with an undisclosed ailment. Top tight end Robert Tonyan could see a slight uptick in targets during Sunday's game against the Titans if Sternberger isn't cleared to suit up.

Packers' Jace Sternberger: Not present at Tuesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sternberger (concussion) wasn't present at Tuesday's practice, Olivia Reiner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Sternberger has missed two games, and he remains in the league's five-step concussion protocol. The second-year tight end will need to take the field by Friday to have a chance to play Sunday against the Titans. The Packers will reveal an official practice report when they take the field Wednesday that should signal if Sternberger has made any progress.

Packers' Jace Sternberger: Ruled out for Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers list Sternberger (concussion) as out for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Wes Hodkiewicz of Green Bay's official site reports.

Sternberger remains in the NFL's concussion protocol and wasn't able to practice in any fashion Tuesday through Thursday, so his absence for the Packers' Week 15 game isn't too surprising in that context. With Sternberger out of the picture, Robert Tonyan could draw an extra target or two as the team's clear top pass-catching tight end, while blocking specialist Marcedes Lewis may see an uptick in his overall snaps.

December 15, 2020 06:12 PM
Packers' Jace Sternberger: Listed as DNP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sternberger (concussion) was listed as a non-participant on Tuesday's practice estimate.

Sternberger is trending in the wrong direction to begin the week. He has two more practice sessions to take the field and have a chance to play in Saturday's matchup against the Panthers. Robert Tonyan and Marcedes Lewis will handle nearly all the tight end reps if Sternberger misses a second straight game, and Dominique Dafney should rotate in as well.

December 11, 2020 05:08 PM
Packers' Jace Sternberger: Won't play against Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sternberger (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Lions, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Sternberger didn't practice all week and will miss his first game of the season. The second-year tight end will aim to return to practice next week with hopes of playing against the Panthers on Dec. 19. Robert Tonyan and Marcedes Lewis are the only two tight ends currently on the active roster, but the Packers may call up Dominique Dafney from the practice squad again.

Packers' Jace Sternberger: Still missing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sternberger (concussion) didn't suit up in Thursday's practice.

Sternberger missed his second straight practice Thursday, as he appears in jeopardy of missing Week 14. The second-year pro appears to still reside in concussion protocol, so he'll need to be fully cleared in order to suit up. With both Sternberger and Marcedes Lewis (knee) missing practice Thursday, Robert Tonyan is currently the only healthy tight end on the roster.

December 10, 2020 08:40 PM
Packers' Jace Sternberger: No-go Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sternberger didn't participate in Wednesday's practice due to a concussion.

Sternberger was diagnosed with a concussion during last week's win over Philadelphia, he still resides in the league's concussion protocol. The team is a bit thin at tight end currently, with Sternberger and Mercedes Lewis (knee) both managing practice snaps Wednesday.

December 6, 2020 06:00 PM
Packers' Jace Sternberger: Won't return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sternberger won't return to Sunday's game against the Eagles after being diagnosed with a concussion.

Sternberger will enter the league's five-step concussion protocol, which he'll need to clear in order to play against the Lions next week. For the time being, Marcedes Lewis and Dominique Dafney will serve as depth behind lead tight end Robert Tonyan.

December 6, 2020 05:20 PM
Packers' Jace Sternberger: Being evaluated for head injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sternberger is being checked for a concussion during Sunday's game against the Eagles, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Sternberger went to the locker room for evaluation in the second quarter. Robert Tonyan, Marcedes Lewis and Dominique Dafney will handle the tight end reps for the time being.

Packers' Jace Sternberger: Three receptions in Week 11 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sternberger was targeted three times and caught three passes for 23 yards in Sunday's loss to the Colts.

Sternberger was on the field for just 16 snaps Sunday, but that was enough for him to tie the career-high three receptions he recorded in both Weeks 3 and 8 of this season. He's made strides in his second season, but he remains well behind Robert Tonyan on the depth chart and also played fewer snaps than fellow tight end Marcedes Lewis in five of the last six contests.

Packers' Jace Sternberger: Momentum comes to halt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sternberger caught his lone target for a one-yard gain in Thursday's 34-17 win over the 49ers.

Sternberger's positive momentum hit a wall Thursday, as he and the rest of the Packers tight ends were afterthoughts in the Week 9 game plan. He did play at least 27 percent of the snaps for the fifth time in six games, but Sternberger hasn't been on the field for more than 37 percent of the plays in any game this season.
