Ty Summers: Let go by Jaguars
Summers was waived by the Jaguars on Saturday, John Shipley of SI.com reports.
Summers spent the majority of the preseason and training camp with the Packers but was waived in the final days of roster cutdown. His time with the Jaguars was short-lived, but he's likely to find a new opportunity around the league after proving to be a viable special-teams contributor earlier in his career.... See More ...

Ty Summers: Waived by Green Bay
The Packers waived Summers on Sunday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Summers was drafted by the Packers in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft and appeared in 46 games across three years in Green Bay, though he mostly played on special teams. The Packers re-signed De'Vondre Campbell and spent a first-round pick on Quay Walker this offseason, which pushed Summers further down the depth chart. However, Summers was still expected to compete with Isaiah McDuffie for a special-teams gig, but the latter has outplayed the former during training camp. Regardless, per Rapoport, the seventh-round pick should get some looks while on the waiver wire.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Ty Summers: Back in action Tuesday
Summers (illness) returned to practice Tuesday after sitting out Monday, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
As expected, Summers' aliment wasn't anything serious, and he's back in action after just one missed practice. The 26-year-old is competing with Krys Barnes and Isaiah McDuffie for a reserve role at inside linebacker, but the 2019 seventh-round pick has played mostly special teams during his first four seasons with Green Bay....

Packers' Ty Summers: Sits out practice Monday
Summers did not practice Monday due to an illness, Mike Spofford of the Packers' official site reports.
Summers' absence could be nothing more than a minor concern given it is his first missed practice during training camp. The 26-year-old is vying with Krys Barnes and Isaiah McDuffie for a reserve role at inside linebacker, though he played 267 special-teams snaps last year and figures to contribute primarily in that capacity for the fourth straight season with Green Bay...

Packers' Ty Summers: Participating in offseason workouts
Summers (hamstring) has been participating in offseason workouts, Jason Wilde of the Wisconsin State Journal reports.
Summers was sidelined at the end of last season due to a hamstring injury, but he appears to be healthy during offseason work. The 2019 seventh-round pick has garnered opportunities in Green Bay over the past couple seasons, but he'll likely be buried on the depth chart after the Packers gave De'Vondre Campbell a massive extension and drafted Quay Walker in the first round....

Packers' Ty Summers: Designated to return from IR
Summers (hamstring) was designated to return from injured reserve Wednesday, Mike Spofford of the Packers' official website reports.
The linebacker was placed on IR Dec. 24, but will now have 21 days to either return to practice or remain on IR for the rest of the season. Summers appeared in 14 regular-season contests, making nine tackles and recovering a fumble while operating mostly as a special-teams option.... See More ... See Less

Packers' Ty Summers: Shifts to COVID list
The Packers placed Summers (hamstring) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday after he tested positive for the virus, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Summers was already on IR due to a hamstring injury, and due to the timing of that transaction, he was already set to miss the rest of the regular season. He'll look to clear COVID protocols so he can focus on getting his hamstring ready to return for the playoffs.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Ty Summers: Goes on injured reserve
Summers (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Friday.
Summers had already been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Browns. His move to IR will put him out for the rest of the regular season, with a chance to return in the playoffs. Selected in the seventh round of the 2019 draft, Summers has primarily contributed on special teams, so his absence shouldn't impact the Packers' defense.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Ty Summers: Won't play Saturday
Summers (hamstring) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Browns, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.
Summers was unable to practice throughout the week. He's played primarily on special teams this year but will be unavailable Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Ty Summers: Off injury report
Summers (hamstring) is no longer listed on the Packers' injury report.
After suffering a hamstring injury in the Packers' preseason game against the Jets, Summers was forced to miss some time. The interior linebacker should be good to go for the Packers' season opener against the Saints.... See More ... See Less

Packers' Ty Summers: Seven tackles Monday
Summers recorded seven tackles (six solo) across 52 defensive snaps in Monday's win over the Falcons.
Summers has slotted in nicely for Christian Kirksey (shoulder) over the past two weeks, totaling 16 tackles in the contests. He only trails Preston Smith and Za'Darius Smith for defensive reps among linebackers during that stretch as well.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Ty Summers: Ties for team lead in tackles
Summers stepped in for an injured Christian Kirksey (shoulder) in Sunday's victory over the Saints and tied for the team lead with nine total tackles.
Summers had never logged a defensive snap until Sunday, but he was pressed into duty after Kirksey left the game and wound up playing the most snaps among the Packers' inside linebackers. Summers will presumably assume Kirksey's spot in the starting lineup -- a position that leads to a lot of tackles in Mike Pettine's defense -- should Kirksey miss more time.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Ty Summers: Tallies four tackles
Summers had four tackles (two solo) in 16 games during 2019.
The rookie seventh-round pick saw action in all 18 games (including postseason) but was limited to special teams during all but one contest. The team's top inside linebackers, Blake Martinez and B.J. Goodson, are both set to be unrestricted free agents in March, but it still seems unlikely Summers will enter training camp competing for more than a depth role.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Ty Summers: Out of concussion protocol
Summers practiced all week and has been cleared by the league's concussion protocol, Olivia Reiner of The Journal Sentinel reports.
Summers left in the first half of Green Bay's last game but has had an extra week of rest, thanks to the bye week, and appears set to play Sunday. Assuming he's active, Summers will feature primarily on special teams.... See More ... See Less
