The Packers have added Robert Tonyan to the injury report.

Even after a mini bye to rest and recover, the Green Bay Packers are still hit badly with injuries.

Fifteen players are on the Packers’ injury report ahead of their Week 10 matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars. We can now add tight end Robert Tonyan to that list.

It’s never ideal when a player begins the week not on the injury report, then is added during the week after suffering an injury at practice. This is the case for Tonyan, who has been added to the report on Thursday due to an ankle injury.

While Tonyan’s status for Sunday is unclear, it’s never a great sign when they get added to the report later on, as we saw when Aaron Jones suffered a minor calf injury at practice a few weeks ago. While the injury wasn’t serious, it was enough to keep him out of two games.

Let’s hope Tonyan being limited at practice was just a precaution and that he’ll be fine to play on Sunday.

Only four players on the injury report were listed as full participants on Thursday: left tackle David Bakhtiari, running back Tyler Ervin, running back Aaron Jones, and edge rusher Preston Smith. We can add Za’Darius Smith too as he returned on Thursday. He didn’t miss Wednesday’s practice due to injury, but instead for the birth of his child.

Seven players were limited on Thursday: Tonyan, cornerback Kevin King, tight end John Lovett, safety Will Redmond, safety Vernon Scott, wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown, and tackle Rick Wagner.

Three players didn’t practice: cornerback Jaire Alexander, tight end Marcedes Lewis, and wide receiver Darrius Shepherd. Not practicing on Thursday means it will likely be difficult for these three players to be out there on Sunday. The one exception could be Lewis who is sometimes given rest days, although he is on the injury report with a knee injury.
