Tonyan broke out in a big way in 2020 with 52-586-11 on 59 targets en route to a TE3 finish. His numbers were down across the board in 2021 prior to his ACL injury, and he was just the TE22 after Week 8 (when he went down and was lost for the season). The team said earlier in the offseason that he was ahead of schedule in his recovery, but beat writer Rob Demovsky penciled Tonyan in for the PUP to start the season, which means he would miss a minimum of four games. Demovsky said that it was an assumption. Meanwhile, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic said it “remains unclear” whether Tonyan will be ready for Week 1. One thing’s for sure–the Packers will need production out of the tight end position this year with Davante Adams no longer around. Tonyan is their best bet.
