Packers are placing 2019 third round draft pick on injured reserve

An ankle injury will keep tight end Jace Sternberger out until at least week 9 of the NFL season. The Green Bay Packers are placing the 2019 third round draft pick on the injured reserve list.

Sternberger was set to be one of four tight ends for the Packers this season, but the ankle injury he sustained in the team's final preseason game will keep him out for quite some time. If the team chooses, they can activate him for week 9.

The Packers still have Jimmy Graham, Robert Tonyan and Marcedes Lewis at TE to begin the season.
