Packers' Tyler Ervin: Season cut short by injuries
Ervin (foot) had 13 carries for 67 yards and 11 receptions for 84 yards over eight games in 2020. He also returned 10 kicks for 196 yards and five punts for 20 yards.
Ervin held a small but defined role early in the season, but he dealt with a number of injuries and appeared in only four games after Week 4. His skill set fits well in the Packers' offense, and his return abilities gave him extra value for a team that had issues in that department. However, he will be a free agent this offseason, and it's hardly a guarantee the Packers bring him back for another year.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Tyler Ervin: Not ready to practice yet
Ervin (foot) won't return to practice Wednesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Head coach Matt LaFleur called Ervin "day-to-day," but the Packers nonetheless aren't ready to open his 21-day window for evaluation at practice. On a more positive note for Green Bay, AJ Dillon (quadriceps) is expected to practice in some capacity Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Tyler Ervin: Move to IR official
The Packers placed Ervin (foot) on injured reserve Wednesday.
It was reported Tuesday that Ervin was expected to shift to IR after suffering a foot injury in the Packers' Week 13 win over the Eagles, so this news isn't surprising. Ervin will now miss at least the next three games, and Tavon Austin could step in to handle return duties over that time. With Ervin out, only Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams are currently healthy on the running back depth chart.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Tyler Ervin: Likely moving to IR
Ervin is expected to be placed on injured reserve after suffering a foot injury during Sunday's 30-16 win over the Eagles, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
The 27-year-old missed the previous two games with a rib injury and played only eight total snaps before sustaining the foot injury Sunday. Ervin could be sidelined for a month, so a move to injured reserve would make sense to free up a roster spot. Tavon Austin could handle return duties and work in a gadget role while Ervin is unavailable.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Tyler Ervin: Injures ankle Sunday
Ervin (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Eagles, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Ervin came into Sunday's contest with a 'questionable' tag due to a ribs injury, but it was an ankle injury that forced him out in the third quarter. Chandon Sullivan could get some work in the return game as long as Ervin remains sidelined.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Tyler Ervin: Returning for Week 13
Ervin (ribs) is active for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
The 27-year-old missed the past two games with the rib injury, but he'll be back on the field versus Philadelphia. Ervin should continue to handle return duties with Tavon Austin (coach's decision) inactive, at least for this week.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Tyler Ervin: Tagged as questionable
Ervin (ribs) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Eagles, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.
Ervin maintained limited participation in practice for a second straight week, providing a chance for the 27-year-old to return to action Sunday. His gadget usage may remain intact if he indeed plays, but his kick and punt return duties are in question after the Packers signed Tavon Austin earlier in the week.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Tyler Ervin: Sitting out again Sunday
Ervin (wrist/ribs) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Bears.
Ervin made progress through his wrist and rib injuries by maintaining limited listings on each practice report this week. Still, the Packers will err on the side of caution and keep him on the sideline. While most of his gadget-like plays on offense will go to a variety of skill-position players, Ervin's return duties likely will be split between Chandon Sullivan (kickoffs) and Darrius Shepherd (punts)....

Packers' Tyler Ervin: Limited during Wednesday's session
Ervin (wrist/ribs) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
This marks an improvement in Ervin's condition, as the 27-year-old didn't practice at all last week. If he manages to stay on the practice field all week, Ervin stands a good chance to play Sunday against the Bears.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Tyler Ervin: Set to sit out Sunday
Ervin (ribs) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Colts, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Ervin left last week's win over the Jaguars in the first half and didn't return, and now he's poised to miss his third game of the year. The 27-year-old functions in a gadget role and also handles return duties, and his absence leaves just Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams in the Packers' backfield for Week 11.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Tyler Ervin: DNP for second straight day
Ervin (ribs) did not participate during the Packers' practice session Thursday.
Ervin was forced to exit Sunday's 24-20 win over Jacksonville during the second quarter, while back-to-back missed practice sessions shed doubt on his Week 11 status. Should the 27-year-old back prove capable of logging some type of practice participation Friday, his chances of suiting up against the Colts surely improve. He recorded just one rush for no yards and one reception for three yards prior to his Week 10 exit, as Jamaal Williams returned from the reserve/COVID-19 list to make an appearance against Jacksonville....

Packers' Tyler Ervin: Starts week with missed practice
Ervin (ribs) didn't practice Wednesday, Olivia Reiner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Ervin had carved out a small role as a pass-catching option out of the backfield prior to getting injured in last week's win over the Jaguars. His role on offense is unlikely to grow significantly as long as Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams remain healthy, but Ervin will still hope to heal up in time to face the Colts on Sunday....

Packers' Tyler Ervin: Ruled out for remainder of day
Ervin (ribs) has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's matchup against the Jaguars, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.
The 27-year-old back was forced to exit during the second quarter of Sunday's cross-conference tilt, and his confirmed absence for the remainder of the day elevates Chandon Sullivan and Josh Jackson to more critical roles on returns. Ervin got involved on the offensive side with one carry and one catch for a total of three scrimmage yards prior to his exit, but now the Packers will be left with just Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams as available backs....

Packers' Tyler Ervin: Leaves with rib injury
Ervin is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Jaguars due to a rib injury, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Ervin had one carry for zero yards, one catch for three yards and returned one kickoff for five yards before exiting during the second quarter. Chandon Sullivan and Josh Jackson could see action on returns during his absence, but the Packers could look elsewhere since the pair are filling in as the team's top cornerbacks this week....
