Bears' Jason Spriggs: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spriggs (knee) is officially active for Sunday's divisional clash against Detroit.

Spriggs had been dealing with the knee issue during training camp, but as evidenced by this news, he's set for his 2020 debut. Now healthy, he's expected to serve as the team's top swing tackle, providing depth on the offensive line Sunday.

Bears' Jason Spriggs: Knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spriggs suffered a right knee injury during Saturday's practice, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Spriggs looks like the favorite to serve as Chicago's swing tackle, so it'll be worth monitoring how long he's held out from practice. He spent the entire 2019 on injured reserve in Green Bay.

Bears' Jason Spriggs: Headed to Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spriggs (back) has signed a one-year contract with the Bears, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports.

Spriggs spent last year on injured reserve in Green Bay. He spent his first four seasons with the team after being selected in the second round of the 2016 draft, but things never really panned out. He will now look for a fresh start in Chicago.

Packers' Jason Spriggs: Reverts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spriggs (back) was moved to the Packers' injured reserve list Wednesday, per the NFL's official transaction page.

Spriggs had been dealing with elbow and back injuries leading up to training camp, and will now stick on the injured reserve list. Barring an injury settlement, he'll remain on the Green Bay's injured reserve for the rest of the season.

Jason Spriggs: Waived/injured by Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers placed Spriggs (back) on the waived/injured list Tuesday.

Spriggs has been dealing with elbow and back injuries leading up to training camp, and was finally placed on waivers. Assuming he goes unclaimed, this move is likely just a precursor to his placement on injured reserve.

Packers' Jason Spriggs: Dealing with new injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spriggs was sidelined during Sunday's practice due to a trapezius injury, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Spriggs hurt his elbow this offseason leading up to training camp, and is now dealing with a new injury. Even with his absence, Spriggs is expected to be nothing more than one of the team's top backups at tackle for 2019.

Packers' Jason Spriggs: Out with elbow injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spriggs hurt his left elbow Tuesday and didn't participate in Wednesday's minicamp practice, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Spriggs hurt his elbow in team drills and was able to return to the field before practice ended Tuesday, but it sounds like the offensive lineman was given Wednesday off. Assuming health prevails, the 25-year-old is expected to open 2019 as one of the Packers' top backups at tackle.

Packers' Jason Spriggs: Deemed unfit to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spriggs (concussion) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Lions.

Spriggs will miss his second straight game with this concussion. The 24-year-old will be entering the final year of his rookie contract next season.

Packers' Jason Spriggs: Likely to miss season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spriggs (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Lions, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Spriggs did not practice Friday after having been limited Thursday. The depth tackle has yet to clear the league-mandated concussion protocol, and appears to be a longshot for Sunday's divisional tilt against the Lions.

Packers' Jason Spriggs: Downgraded for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spriggs (concussion) was downgraded from doubtful to out for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Spriggs was listed as doubtful on the Packers' official injury report Friday, so this isn't surprising. Starting right tackle Bryan Bulaga (knee) is returning from his knee injury, which would have left Spriggs in a reserve role if healthy.

Packers' Jason Spriggs: Officially listed as doubtful
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spriggs (concussion) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Jets, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Spriggs appears a longshot to clear the league-mandated concussion protocol in time to suit up versus the Jets. With starting right tackle Bryan Bulaga on track to return, the 24-year-old will be limited to a reserve role even if he is active.

Packers' Jason Spriggs: Suffers possible concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spriggs is being evaluated for a concussion following Sunday's loss to the Bears, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Spriggs was filling in at right tackle with Bryan Bulaga (knee) inactive, and apparently illustrated concussion-like symptoms after the game. If the concussion is confirmed, the 24-year-old will have to clear the league-mandated concussion protocol before being eligible for game action.

Packers' Jason Spriggs: Active for Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spriggs (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Rams, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Spriggs appears to have fully recovered from his ankle injury during Green Bay's bye week. The backup tackle will provide the Packers with offensive line depth against Los Angeles' stout defensive front Sunday.

Packers' Jason Spriggs: Inactive for Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spriggs (ankle) is inactive for Monday's contest against the 49ers, Jason Wahlers of the Packers' official site reports.

Spriggs was a late addition to this week's injury report and will be unable to suit up Monday. With Spriggs out, the Packers lose depth on their offensive line at the tackle position. Byron Bell and Lucas Patrick are the only reserve offensive lineman available against San Francisco.

Packers' Jason Spriggs: Questionable for Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spriggs is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the 49ers with an ankle injury, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Spriggs was added to the injury report Friday and was a limited practice participant the last two days. The Packers could be short on offensive line depth Monday, with starting tackle Bryan Bulaga (knee) also listed as questionable.

Packers' Jason Spriggs: Receives first-team reps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spriggs (kneecap) took most of the first-team reps at Friday's practice session, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Spriggs was reportedly struggling to recover from a dislocated kneecap suffered last season, favoring his good left knee enough to warrant being shut down by the coaching staff. His return to practice suggests that the knee has made significant progress since then, and he will get a long look at a temporary starting spot with Bryan Bulaga (knee) expected to miss an extended portion of training camp. Bulaga could still be ready for Week 1, which would likely push Spriggs into a backup role once again.

Packers' Jason Spriggs: Struggling to return from knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spriggs (kneecap) has struggled in his return from a dislocated left kneecap, Jason Wilde of the Journal Times reports.

Spriggs was able to participate in the early goings of OTAs in late May, but he was significantly favoring his left knee to the point where the Packers coaching staff ultimately shut him down for two weeks. However, Spriggs returned for minicamp and appeared "considerably quicker" in his movements, so the offensive tackle at least seems to be on the upswing in advance of training camp in late July. He'll likely compete for a depth role, but he also could get some first-team reps at right tackle while starter Bryan Bulaga works his way back from a torn ACL.

Packers' Jason Spriggs: Appears in OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spriggs (kneecap) was limited in OTAs on Tuesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Despite avoiding surgery, it was predicted Spriggs may sit out until training camp, so getting on the field in any fashion is a win. Spriggs is slated to be a reserve lineman in 2018 with Bryan Bulaga (knee) returning, but he could move inside and battle for a guard position with Jahri Evans still unsigned.

Packers' Jason Spriggs: Could be sidelined until training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spriggs (kneecap) may not be available for the start of training camp in the summer, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Spriggs' second NFL season was almost entirely spoiled by injuries, with a hamstring tear suffered in the season opener forcing him to spend nine games on injured reserve. He was later designated to return in the second half of the season and started four games at right tackle before dislocating his kneecap on the first drive of the Packers' Week 16 loss to the Vikings. Though he didn't require surgery to address the injury, Spriggs' rehab will span several months and could hurt his chances of earning a roster spot with the Packers during camp.

Packers' Jason Spriggs: Diagnosed with dislocated kneecap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spriggs (knee) was diagnosed with a dislocated left kneecap and won't require surgery, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Spriggs, who was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, won't require the procedure since no damage to his patellar tendon was detected. It's expected that Spriggs will require multiple months to recuperate, though the team is hopeful he'll be ready for the start of Organized Team Activities in the spring. Justin McCray looks poised to start at right tackle in Spriggs' place during the season finale Sunday against the Lions.
