Packers' Josiah Deguara: Limited practice Wednesday
Deguara (hip) was a limited participant at the Packers' practice Wednesday.
Deguara was unavailable for the team's 29-22 win over the Lions on Thanksgiving due to a hip injury, so his ability to practice in any capacity to open the week is a step in the right direction to be available for Week 13. The tight end will have two more chances to increase his workload prior to Sunday's matchup with the Chiefs.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Josiah Deguara: Inactive Week 12, as expected
Deguara (hip) is officially inactive for Thursday's contest against Detroit, Mike Spofford of the Packers' official site reports.
Deguara was deemed doubtful Wednesday for the Thanksgiving clash, so it's no surprise that he isn't suiting up. The 26-year-old had played in each of Green Bay's 10 contests prior to Week 12, working in a hybrid tight end/fullback role. The Packers elevated Henry Pearson from the practice squad Wednesday to cover fullback duties versus the Lions.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Josiah Deguara: Doubtful for Thursday's matchup
Deguara (hip) is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game versus the Lions, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.
Deguara is listed as doubtful for Thursday's matchup due to a hip injury suffered during last week's win over the Chargers. With Luke Musgrave (abdomen) placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Tucker Kraft and Ben Sims will likely be the only two healthy tight ends on Green Bay's roster when they take on the Lions....

Packers' Josiah Deguara: Estimated as non-participant
Deguara (hip) was a non-participant on Tuesday's practice estimate.
Deguara has now appeared as a non-participant on both of the Packers' first two Week 12 injury report while he recovers from the hip issue he , as he sustained in Sunday's win over the Chargers. With Luke Musgrave nursing a serious abdominal issue, Tucker Kraft and Ben Sims would be the only healthy tight ends available Thursday against the Lions if Musgrave and Deguara are unable to suit up....

Packers' Josiah Deguara: Hip issue has status in doubt
The Packers listed Deguara (hip) as a non-participant on Monday's practice estimate.
Deguara injured his hip during Sunday's win against the Chargers, putting his status for Thursday's matchup with Detroit in question. With Luke Musgrave (abdomen) also dealing with an injury, Tucker Kraft and Ben Sims now are the only healthy tight ends on Green Bay's roster.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Josiah Deguara: Dealing with hip issue
Deguara is questionable to return to Sunday's game after suffering a hip injury.
Deguara remains on Green Bay's sideline, and he's getting looked at by the team's medical staff. For the time being, Tucker Kraft should see increased opportunities on the Packers' offense.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Josiah Deguara: Back in regular role
Deguara caught his only target for 19 yards in Monday's 17-13 loss to the Raiders.
The fourth-year tight end played over 60 percent of the snaps in Week 4 after Luke Musgrave exited the contest due to a concussion, but Deguara was back into a part-time role Monday. Expect him to remain in that spot when the Packers return to action in Week 7 after their bye.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Josiah Deguara: Efficient on four targets in loss
Deguara secured all four of his targets for 34 yards in the Packers' 34-20 loss to the Lions on Thursday night.
Deguara finished second in receptions for the Packers on the night and tied for third in targets. The fourth-year tight end's season-best line was largely the byproduct of position mate Luke Musgrave leaving the game for good in the second quarter to be evaluated for a concussion. Despite Thursday's modest spike in production, Deguara figures to return to a complementary role behind Musgrave if the latter is cleared to return against the Raiders for a Week 5 matchup on Monday night, Oct. 9....

Packers' Josiah Deguara: Sees action Saturday
Deguara (calf) saw action in Saturday's 19-15 preseason victory over the Seahawks.
Deguara did not make a mark in the box score, but he appeared in a second straight game after missing the exhibition opener with a calf issue. Deguara, listed as a fullback on Green Bay's official depth chart, is not a lock to open the regular season on the roster. However, he worked as a tight end in the past, and that experience could pay off with only three tight ends healthy for the Packers.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Josiah Deguara: Unlikely to play Friday
Deguara (calf) isn't in line to play in Friday's preseason contest at Cincinnati, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.
Deguara has been dealing with a calf injury for more than a week, but he was able to return for some drills at Wednesday's joint practice with the Bengals. With Deguara unavailable, the Packers will roll with Luke Musgrave, Tucker Kraft (knee), Tyler Davis and Austin Allen at tight end in their exhibition opener.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Josiah Deguara: Still held out of team drills
Deguara (calf) returned to practice Wednesday but isn't participating in team drills, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.
Deguara is likely considered limited at Wednesday's practice after missing roughly a week of camp due to a calf injury. His status for Friday's preseason opener against the Bengals still appears uncertain, but it's nonetheless positive to see Deguara back on the field in some capacity. Following the offseason departure of Robert Tonyan, Deguara is primarily competing with rookies Luke Musgrave and Tucker Kraft (knee) for snaps at tight end.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Josiah Deguara: Bothered by calf
Deguara missed Thursday's practice with a calf injury, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
The 2020 third-round pick was already in a tough spot this summer, with the Packers using second- and third-round picks on tight ends in April after getting only 13 receptions out of Deguara last year. Robert Tonyan, now with the Bears, was easily Green Bay's top receiving option at tight end in 2022, pulling in 53 of 67 targets (79.1 percent) but for only 470 yards and two touchdowns. The competition to replace Tonyan might center around rookies Luke Musgrave and Tucker Kraft more so than Deguara, especially if the third-year pro misses more than a few days this summer....

Packers' Josiah Deguara: Steps back in third season
Deguara was targeted 15 times and caught 13 passes for 114 yards over 17 games in the 2022 campaign.
Deguara appeared in every game for the first time in his three-year career, but he finished with roughly half the number of receptions and yards as he did in 2021, and he also failed to find the end zone after doing so twice in the previous season. He will almost certainly be back with Green Bay for a fourth go-around, but chances are he will remain in a complementary role.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Josiah Deguara: Active in Week 18
Deguara (calf) is listed as active Sunday against the Lions, Mike Spofford of the Packers' official site reports.
After sitting out Thursday's practice due to a calf injury, Deguara returned to a limited session Friday and entered the weekend listed as questionable for Week 18 action. Now that his status is confirmed, he'll continue to play a key role as a blocking tight end for the Packers offense, which doesn't hold much sway in fantasy considering he has a 13-114-0 line on 15 targets in 16 games this season....

Packers' Josiah Deguara: Tabbed as questionable for Sunday
The Packers list Deguara (calf) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Heading into a win-or-go-home matchup with the Lions in the regular-season finale, the Packers will have all members of the 53-man roster available aside from potentially Deguara, who is tending to the calf injury. After failing to practice Thursday on account of the injury, Deguara at least managed to take a step forward Friday by practicing on a limited basis. When available, Deguara has handled a small role as a depth tight end, never playing more than 50 percent of the offensive snaps in a given week while drawing two or fewer targets in 15 of his 16 appearances on the season....

Packers' Josiah Deguara: Dealing with injury
Deguara did not participate during the Packers' practice Thursday due to a calf injury.
Deguara popped up on Green Bay's injury report with this issue for the first time Thursday. The 25-year-old was seen working on a stationary bike and stretching during Thursday's session, according to Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site, so it appears he may have picked up the injury at some point during practice Wednesday. Deguara has recorded 13 catches on 15 targets for 114 yards, and his biggest contributions have come as a blocker and core special-teamer. He'll have one opportunity to increase his practice activity Friday, or else he could be in jeopardy of missing his first game of the season during Sunday's crucial regular-season finale against the Lions....

Packers' Josiah Deguara: Draws five targets in defeat
Deguara caught all five of his targets for 41 yards in Sunday's 15-9 loss to the Lions.
The tight end entered Sunday's contest with just six receptions for 65 yards over eight games, but the Packers needed more from him Sunday after rookie wideouts Romeo Doubs (ankle) and Christian Watson (head) exited early, and Deguara nearly doubled his production on the season. The Packers may continue looking for ways to get him more involved due to the attrition at wide receiver, but he is sharing snaps at tight end with Robert Tonyan and Marcedes Lewis and thus remains on the fringes of fantasy utility....
