Packers' TE Brandon Bostick out Week 1-- Wed Sep 3 3:30 pm --
Richard Rodgers will get the start
The Green Bay Packers completed practice Wednesday before their scheduled flight to Seattle and released their final injury report for Week 1. TE Brandon Bostick (leg) - DNP - OUT(Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)
FF Today's Take:Rookie Richard Rodgers is expected to get the start and share tight end duties with Andrew Quarless. Neither is an ideal fantasy play given the Week 1 depth at the tight end position. Fantasy owners should let this situation play itself out before committing one of the Green Bay tight ends to a starting lineup.
Packers tight end Lyeria has torn MCL, PCL-- Thu Aug 14 7:30 am --
Knee injury occured in early August
Rookie free agent Colt Lyerla, who is out indefinitely with a torn medial collateral ligament and a torn posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, was asked if he'd like to return as a fullback rather than a tight end. "I wouldn't want to be, but I think I could be," replied Lyerla. "I guess it would depend on the offense."(Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)
FF Today's Take:Lyeria is likely headed for the IR or will be released with an injury settlement. The Packers tight end situation is shaping up to be a committee with Brandon Bostick, Richard Rodgers and Andrew Quarless all in the mix. Fantasy owners would be wise to avoid this situation come draft day until a frontrunner becomes apparent.
