Packers' Robert Tonyan: Signs tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tonyan (abdomen) has officially signed his exclusive-rights free agent tender from the Packers, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

This was just a formality, as Tonyan was always expected to sign the tender. He is now set to compete with Jace Sternberger, veteran Marcedes Lewis and the recently drafted Josiah Deguara for snaps at tight end. The 25-year-old has worked his way up ladder since joining the organization as a member of the practice squad in 2017.

Packers' Robert Tonyan: Receives tender from Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers tendered a contract Tuesday to Tonyan (abdomen), an exclusive-rights free agent, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Tonyan will return to Green Bay for at least another year after having initially joined the organization as a member of the practice squad in 2017. Following the departure of Jimmy Graham, the 25-year-old looks in line to handle an expanded role in the Packers' tight end corps during the 2020 campaign, along with second-year pro Jace Sternberger and veteran Marcedes Lewis. He's still recovering from core muscle surgery, which he underwent in February.

Packers' Robert Tonyan: Undergoes core muscle surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tonyan is recovering from core muscle surgery undergone to address an injury he played through during the 2019 season, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Tonyan was forced to miss five regular-season games last year due to the injury. He hauled in 10 passes for 100 yards and one touchdown across the 11 games he did suit up for. The 25-year-old saw regular usage as Green Bay's third tight end when healthy in 2019, and he could have a shot at an expanded role in 2020 if the team opts to part ways with Jimmy Graham for salary cap reasons. Veteran tight end Marcedes Lewis is also a free agent.

Packers' Robert Tonyan: Regularly used as third tight end
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tonyan appeared in 11 regular-season games for the Packers in 2019 and tallied 10 receptions on 15 targets for an even 100 yards and a touchdown.

Tonyan regularly served as the Packers' No. 3 tight end before and after missing five games and most of a sixth with a hip injury suffered in Week 5. While he has caught just 14 passes over 27 games in his two professional seasons, he has shown some play-making ability, scoring twice and averaging 12.6 yards per reception. The tight end position is in flux for the Packers with Jimmy Graham a possible salary-cap casualty and Marcedes Lewis a free agent, so Tonyan could have a chance to play a more prominent role in 2020.

Packers' Robert Tonyan: One reception in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tonyan was targeted twice and caught one pass for five yards in Sunday's victory over the Bears.

Tonyan scored his first touchdown of the season Week 14, but he could not build on that Week 15. His youth in relation to veteran tight ends Jimmy Graham and Marcedes Lewis gives him some intrigue, but he figures to remain a reserve the rest of the way and also will have to compete for snaps with fellow youngster Jace Sternberger, who totaled 14 plays Sunday to Tonyan's nine.

Packers' Robert Tonyan: First touchdown this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tonyan caught a 12-yard touchdown pass in Sunday's victory over Washington.

Tonyan was targeted only once Week 14 but was able to find paydirt for the first time this season. He's played a regular role since returning to action Week 12 following a five-game absence, taking the field on 31.5 percent of the offensive snaps. However, he isn't seeing the field enough nor seeing the ball thrown his direction enough to warrant much consideration in Week 15 playoff matchups.

Packers' Robert Tonyan: Season-high snap count
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tonyan was targeted twice and caught two passes for eight yards in Sunday's loss to the 49ers.

Tonyan took the field for the first time since Week 5 and played a season-high 27 snaps, but he filled a complementary role for most of the game and did not make either of his catches while Aaron Rodgers was under center. Tonyan was active over Jace Sternberger on Sunday, which slots him third among Packers tight ends moving forward.

Packers' Robert Tonyan: Active for SNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tonyan (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

For the first time since Week 5, Tonyan will take the field with the Green and Gold. The tight end will continue working as a reserve behind Jimmy Graham and Marcedes Lewis. Tonyan has posted four catches for 66 scoreless yards over his first five contests.

Packers' Robert Tonyan: Has 50-50 shot to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tonyan (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Olivia Reiner of the Journal Sentinel reports.

Tonyan is expected to play but is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's highly anticipated game against the 49ers. The 25-year-old has been targeted only six times in five games, but Aaron Rodgers likes to spread the ball around, so Tonyan could sneak his way into the box score if he's able to take the field. If he plays, expect the depth tight end to see a 15-25 snap workload.

Packers' Robert Tonyan: Practices in full Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tonyan (hip) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

Tonyan missed the Packers' last five games due to the hip injury, but he appears ready to go coming out of a Week 11 bye. The 25-year-old will likely step in as the Packers' No. 3 tight end in Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Packers' Robert Tonyan: Watching from sidelines again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tonyan (hip) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Tonyan will miss a fifth straight contest after being deemed doubtful on Friday's injury report. This will leave rookie Jace Sternberger, who made his NFL debut last week, as the No. 3 tight end behind top dogs Jimmy Graham and Marcedes Lewis.

Packers' Robert Tonyan: Doubtful versus Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tonyan (hip) is officially listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Tonyan hasn't managed to suit up since Week 5 against the Cowboys due to the lingering hip injury. He practiced in a limited capacity to begin the week but was unable to participate in any capacity Friday. The 25-year-old appears to be trending toward another inactive designation Week 10, in which case rookie Jace Sternberger could benefit from increased opportunities behind Jimmy Graham and Marcedes Lewis.

Packers' Robert Tonyan: Limited participant Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tonyan (hip) practiced in a limited fashion Wednesday.

Tonyan was limited on his last three practice reports leading up to being inactive for Week 9's loss to the Chargers, so it's tough to conclude anything about his status for Sunday's matchup against the Panthers. He's on the right track at least, and Thursday's practice should reveal more. The 25-year-old tight end has four catches for 66 yards over five games this season, and he may face competition from rookie Jace Sternberger when he returns.

November 3, 2019 03:04 PM
Packers' Robert Tonyan: Won't suit up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tonyan (hip) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Jason Wahlers of the Packers' official site reports.

Tonyan will watch his third straight game from the sidelines. Rookie Jace Sternberger was just activated off injured reserve with an ankle issue and will make his NFL debut in this contest, taking over the No. 3 tight-end role behind Jimmy Graham and Marcedes Lewis.

Packers' Robert Tonyan: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tonyan (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Tonyan was a limited practice participant all week and may have a chance to see game action for the first time since suffering the hip injury Week 5. Even if active, the 25-year-old is unlikely to provide much fantasy production while working as the No. 3 tight end behind Jimmy Graham and Marcedes Lewis.

Packers' Robert Tonyan: Limited in practice again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tonyan (hip) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Tonyan was also limited in Wednesday's walkthrough practice. The 25-year-old has missed Green Bay's last three games, and if he's limited again Friday, a "questionable" injury tag could be in the cards Week 9.

October 30, 2019 08:36 PM
Packers' Robert Tonyan: Estimated as limited participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tonyan (hip) was listed as a limited participant for Wednesday's walkthrough.

Tonyan has missed the last three games and finished last week as a non-participant before being listed as doubtful for Week 8. The 25-year-old would work behind Jimmy Graham and Marcedes Lewis at tight end should he be cleared to play Sunday against the Chargers.

October 27, 2019 06:56 PM
Packers' Robert Tonyan: Held out again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tonyan (hip) is listed as inactive Sunday at Kansas City, Jason Wahlers of the Packers' official site reports.

Missing his third game in a row due to a hip injury, Tonyan hasn't made enough appreciable progress in practice to indicate that a return is imminent. Instead, the Packers will continue to roll with a TE combination of Jimmy Graham and Marcedes Lewis.

October 25, 2019 04:56 PM
Packers' Robert Tonyan: Unlikely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tonyan (hip) is doubtful for Sunday's game at Kansas City, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Tonyan appeared ready to return after working as a full practice participant Wednesday, but his participation regressed over the last two days to leave him little chance of playing Week 8. Evan Baylis once again appears poised to serve as the Packers' No. 3 tight end behind Jimmy Graham (ankle) and Marcedes Lewis (rest), both of whom are good to go for Sunday.

October 24, 2019 06:28 PM
Packers' Robert Tonyan: Limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tonyan (hip) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Tonyan was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's walkthrough practice, but he's now been downgraded to a limited session. After missing the last two games due to a lingering hip issue, Tonyan's availability for Sunday's tilt against the Chiefs can't be considered a sure thing. Jimmy Graham (ankle) and Marcedes Lewis (rest) were also limited Thursday.
