Packers' Josiah Deguara: Not playing Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deguara (ankle) is listed as inactive Sunday in New Orleans, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

After opening his career with one catch on a 31-percent offensive snap share Week 1, Deguara will miss his second game in a row due to an ankle injury. With Davante Adams (hamstring) also inactive Sunday, the Packers may use more two-TE sets than normal, setting up Robert Tonyan, Marcedes Lewis and Jace Sternberger for increased usage.

Packers' Josiah Deguara: Unlikely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deguara (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's contest at New Orleans.

Sidelined Week 2 due to shin and ankle injuries, Deguara made an attempt to practice this week, putting in a limited showing Wednesday. However, he was unable to participate at all Thursday and Friday and seems poised for a second consecutive absence. Look for Robert Tonyan and Marcedes Lewis to split most of the TE reps in Deguara's stead, with Jace Sternberger acting as the third option at the position.

Packers' Josiah Deguara: Sits out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deguara (shin/ankle) was a non-participant during Thursday's practice after being limited in Wednesday's session, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Deguara's pattern of practice participation is following a similar trajectory to last week, as he logged a limited session Wednesday before sitting out Thursday and Friday, ultimately receiving an inactive designation for Week 2 against the Lions. The 23-year-old rookie kicked off his NFL career with a 12-yard catch in the season debut against Minnesota, but it appears based on the latest injury report that he is unlikely to play Week 3 against a New Orleans defense that has allowed more tight-end receptions (20) than any other team in the NFL.

Packers' Josiah Deguara: Limited in Wednesday's session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deguara (shin/ankle) was limited during Wednesday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Ahead of Week 2, Deguara was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice but sat out Thursday and Friday, ultimately ending up inactive against the Lions. Thursday's practice report should give a better indication of his status for Sunday's matchup versus the Saints.

Packers' Josiah Deguara: Out for Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deguara (shin/ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Lions.

Deguara missed the Packers' last two practice sessions of the week with his leg injuries, and he will not play Sunday for the same reason. Deguara's absence should open up some snaps for the other three tight ends on the Packers' roster, and possibly some targets for Robert Tonyan and Jace Sternberger, in particular.

Packers' Josiah Deguara: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deguara (shin/ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Deguara began the week as a limited participant, but he's now missed back-to-back sessions and appears to be trending in the wrong direction for Week 2. The rookie tight end was involved on offense during his NFL debut, as he drew two targets. If he misses time, Marcedes Lewis, Robert Tonyan and Jace Sternberger could see slightly more opportunities.

Packers' Josiah Deguara: Has shin, ankle injuries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deguara didn't practice Thursday due to shin and ankle injuries, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

The downgrade in activity level is somewhat concerning, as Deguara was listed as limited with a shin issue Wednesday. Now with another health concern in tow, he may be trending in the wrong direction for a Week 2 matchup with the Lions. Continue to watch his status as the weekend approaches.

Packers' Josiah Deguara: Limited by shin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deguara was limited at Wednesday's practice due to a shin injury, Rob Demovsky of reports.

In his NFL debut Week 1 at Minnesota, Deguara ranked third among Packers tight ends in offensive snaps behind Robert Tonyan and Marcedes Lewis, and ahead of Jace Sternberger. In the process, Deguara hauled in one of two targets for 12 yards. This injury could inhibit him some throughout the week, and Friday's injury report will provide a sense of his ability to play Sunday against the Lions.

Packers' Josiah Deguara: One reception in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deguara caught one pass for 12 yards in Sunday's 43-34 victory over the Vikings.

Deguara did not do much in the box score, but the Packers did run a couple plays for the rookie, who was the only Green Bay tight end to catch a pass in Sunday's contest. He finished third in snaps among the Packers' four tight ends Week 1, but don't be surprised to see his role expand in the weeks to come.

Packers' Josiah Deguara: Buried on initial depth chart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deguara is listed third, along with Jace Sternberger, on the unofficial depth chart released by the Packers on Monday night.

Deguara looks set to begin his career behind both Marcedes Lewis and Robert Tonyan, while mixing in alongside second-year pro Sternberger for work. The rookie third-round pick's versatility and impressive athleticism should make him a candidate to earn a larger role as his development progresses, but he's an unlikely option for fantasy success to kick off the 2020 season.

Packers' Josiah Deguara: Links up with Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers selected Deguara in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 94th overall.

Deguara is somewhat undersized for a tight end but has impressive athleticism to match his notable collegiate production. The Cincinnati product caught 77 of 137 targets for 927 yards and 12 touchdowns over his last two years with the Bearcats. At the combine, Deguara ran a 4.6 40-yard dash at 6-foot-2 and 242 pounds. He also had strong shuttle and jump scores. With Jimmy Graham gone, Deguara could compete with second-year pro Jace Sternberger for the starting tight end role in Green Bay. However, it appears he will line up all over, as according to GM Brian Gutekunst, Deguara will likely be used "in the slot, back as a fullback, (and as) an H-back."
