Packers' Josiah Deguara: Placed on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deguara was placed on the Active/PUP-List Friday, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports.

No surprise here, as Deguara is returning from an ACL injury that ended his rookie campaign after just two weeks. Prior to the injury, he saw a substantial amount of first-team reps. In his absence, Robert Tonyan proceeded to enjoy a breakout season and will enter 2021as the team's No. 1 tight end. However, Deguara does not project as a traditional tight end, as he is expected to display his versatitlity in the backfield, on the line and even in the slot. Still, it remains to be seen how close he is to returning to full-contact work.

Packers' Josiah Deguara: Could be ready for camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deguara (knee) may have progressed far enough in his recovery from a torn ACL to participate in the beginning of training camp, Jason Wilde of the Lacrosse Tribune reports.

Deguara handled a substantial amount of first-team reps as a rookie last offseason, but a torn ACL ended his inaugural NFL campaign after just two games. On the bright side, the timing of Deguara's injury should allow him to fully recover by Week 1. Deguara and teammate David Bakhtiari (knee), who is also working his way back from a torn ACL, did rehab work together during OTAs earlier this offseason.

Packers' Josiah Deguara: Officially placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers placed Deguara (torn ACL) on injured reserve Tuesday.

Deguara tore his ACL in Week 4 against the Falcons, and he'll predictably be shut down for the season. The rookie third-rounder caught one pass for 12 yards this year. The Packers have Robert Tonyan, Jace Sternberger and Marcedes Lewis (knee) available to handle reps at tight end moving forward, and Deguara should have enough time to make a full recovery for the 2021 season.

Packers' Josiah Deguara: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deguara suffered a torn ACL in Monday's win over the Falcons and has been ruled out for the season, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

It was Deguara's second career NFL game after being selected in the third round of April's draft, and the rookie hasn't had much of a chance to impact the team's offense. He'll focus on rehabbing to return in 2021 at 100 percent. For the time being, Robert Tonyan will continue to lead the team's tight ends while Jace Sternberger and Marcedes Lewis (knee) rotate in.

Packers' Josiah Deguara: Active for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deguara (shin) is active for the Packers' Week 4 matchup against the Falcons.

Deguara got in two limited practices to close the week, enough for him to be ready to go for Monday's action. With Marcedes Lewis (knee) sidelined, Deguara may see an increased role. However, Regulars will still work behind both Robert Tonyan and Jace Sternberger.

Packers' Josiah Deguara: Deemed questionable for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deguara (shin) is questionable for Monday's game versus the Falcons.

Deguara logged two straight limited practice sessions to finish off the practice week, so he may gear up for the first time since Week 1. Meanwhile, Marcedes Lewis (knee) is considered doubtful, so Deguara could operate as the No. 3 tight end Monday.

Packers' Josiah Deguara: Ramps up participation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deguara (shin) was a limited participant in Friday's practice, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Deguara sat out Thursday's practice but was able to get some work in Friday. His practice capacity Saturday will help reveal the tight end's status for Monday's matchup against the Falcons. Even if he suits up, however, Robert Tonyan and Jace Sternberger figure to handle most of the reps as they did in Week 3.

Packers' Josiah Deguara: DNP to kick off practice week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deguara (shin) did not participate during the Packers' practice session Thursday.

The rookie third-round draft choice has missed each of Green Bay's last two outings after collecting one catch for 12 yards during a Week 1 win against the Vikings. It appeared the rookie was in line for a moderate role prior to the injury, as he saw the field for 31 percent of the Packers' offensive snaps against Minnesota. Now facing a potential third consecutive absence during Green Bay's Monday night showdown against Atlanta, Robert Tonyan and Jace Sternberger stand to serve as Aaron Rodgers' top pass-catching tight ends against the Falcons.

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 ESPN.com 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."
