UPDATE: Robert Tonyan has returned to the game. He likely had his ankle re-taped. We’ll see if it hampers him moving forward.

Green Bay Packers tight end Robert Tonyan limp/jogged to the sideline after hurting his ankle on a route and then was taken to the medical tent for further evaluation. Tonyan has been a touchdown monster with five this season and three in their last game.

With Aaron Rodgers struggling with interceptions so far in this matchup, it looks like the Packers will need all hands on deck. We’ll see if Big Bob Tonyan can make his way back to the field. If he can’t, Jace Sternberger would likely see the biggest increase in snaps.
