Injury Knee
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Ryan was set to occupy the starting inside linebacker spot alongside Blake Martinez, but he tore his ACL early in training camp and will not play this season. Given the timing of his injury, he will have a chance to get back on the field before training camp kicks off in 2019. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a four-year, $2.74 million contract with the Packers in May of 2015.
Placed on IR
LBGreen Bay Packers
August 6, 2018
Ryan was placed on injured reserve Monday, the team's official site reports.
Ryan's trip to the IR was inevitable after he was carted off the practice field last Monday and ultimately diagnosed with a torn ACL. He'll endure a lengthy road to recovery after undergoing surgery to repair the knee, but he could be ready for training camp in 2019. Expect rookie third-rounder Oren Burks to have an inside route to a starting role at inside linebacker next to Blake Martinez for the Packers this season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Ryan's role expanded in his second season in the NFL and he played the second-most snaps of any Packers inside linebacker. He saw only scant action on passing downs, but still finished with a respectable 82 tackles over 14 games. If he sees even more snaps in 2017, he has a good shot at hitting the 100-tackle mark for the first time in his career.
Ryan tallied just five starts in 2015, yet still finished eighth on the team in tackles. With Clay Matthews reverting back to his natural alignment at outside linebacker, plenty of playing time is up for grabs and Ryan could very well improve upon his 50-tackle rookie campaign if he can secure a starting role prior to the start of the regular season. With his competition being the injury-prone Sam Barrington and rookie Blake Martinez, that starting gig appears well within Ryan's grasp.
Ryan was a fourth-round selection by the Packers in the 2015 draft. He will have a spot on the Week 1 roster, but just how much playing time he sees remains to be seen.
