Packers' Simon Stepaniak: Back to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepaniak (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

The transaction was made to free up a roster spot for offensive tackle Jared Veldheer, who was signed off the Colts' practice squad. Stepaniak spent most of the season on the reserve/non-football injury list, as he was still recovering from the torn ACL he suffered in December of 2019. The rookie sixth-round pick still didn't play a snap after being activated from the reserve list. He'll aim to stay healthy this offseason and make the NFL roster in 2021.

Packers' Simon Stepaniak: Sitting out Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepaniak (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game at Chicago.

The 23-year-old was activated from the non-football injury list in early December but has yet to be active for a game while progressing in his recovery from ACL surgery in December 2019. It's unclear if Stepaniak is expected to be game ready at some point during the playoffs.

Packers' Simon Stepaniak: Won't face Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepaniak (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Stepaniak logged a trio of full practice sessions this week, but he'll nonetheless be forced to sit out Sunday's game. The rookie sixth-round pick is still looking for a chance to make his NFL debut.

Packers' Simon Stepaniak: Full-go in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepaniak (knee) was a full participant during the Packers' practice session Wednesday.

The rookie sixth-round draft choice came off the reserve/non-football injury list Dec. 9, but he's been held out for each of Green Bay's two games since. A full practice session from Stepaniak bodes well for a potential upcoming NFL debut, and he'll get his next opportunity Sunday night in a home matchup against the Titans.

Packers' Simon Stepaniak: Ruled out for Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepaniak won't play against Carolina on Saturday, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

The sixth-round rookie came off injured reserve last Wednesday, though he remains unable to make his NFL debut after kicking off the season on the NFI list. If capable of reaching the field this season, Stepaniak will likely slot into a depth role on the offensive line as Green Bay aims to lock down the NFC's No. 1 seed.

Packers' Simon Stepaniak: Full practice participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepaniak (knee) was a full participant on Tuesday's practice estimate.

The Packers didn't actually hold practice Tuesday, but if they did, it would've been the rookie's first full-speed session of his career. The 23-year-old appears to be 100 percent after tearing his ACL last December. Stepaniak will add depth on the interior of Green Bay's offensive line going forward.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Stepaniak is still working back from the torn ACL he suffered in December of 2019 when he was playing for Indiana in college. The rookie sixth-round pick practiced in a limited fashion all week.

Packers' Simon Stepaniak: Moves to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepaniak (knee) was activated from the reserve/non-football injury list Wednesday.

This doesn't necessarily mean that Stepaniak is ready to play this week against the Lions, but Wednesday was the deadline to activate him from the NFI list. The rookie sixth-rounder is recovering from the torn ACL he suffered in December of 2019. Once he's fully healthy, Stepaniak will add depth on the offensive line.

Packers' Simon Stepaniak: Window to return opens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepaniak (knee) was designated to return from the reserve/non-football injury list Wednesday, opening his 21-day window to be activated, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Stepaniak tore his ACL in late December 2019, and he's making progress in his recovery. The rookie sixth-round pick can start practicing this week, and the Packers have until Dec. 9 to evaluate him, at which point they can either activate him, waive him or place him on season-ending IR.

Stepaniak (knee) was added to the reserve/non-football injury on Saturday, Mike Spofford of the team's official site reports.

The 2020 sixth-round selection suffered a torn ACL at the beginning of the year and he will sit out the remainder of the season in order to recover.

Packers' Simon Stepaniak: Placed on NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepaniak (knee) has been placed on the Packers' active/non-football injury list, Jason Wilde of ESPN.com reports.

Stepaniak, who Green Bay selected in the sixth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, continues to recover from the torn ACL that he sustained while practicing for Indiana ahead of the 75th edition of Gator Bowl, which was played on Jan. 2.

Packers' Simon Stepaniak: Heading to Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers selected Stepaniak (knee) in the sixth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 209th overall.

Green Bay double-tapped offensive line with its back-to-back picks in the sixth, nabbing Jake Hanson out of Oregon before adding Stepaniak. The Indiana product is coming off an ACL tear suffered in the Hoosiers' bowl game, so his NFL debut could be delayed. He was a two-year starter at Indiana and has the frame to hold up on the interior at 6-foot-4 and 313 pounds.
