Packers place Sternberger on injured reserve

GREEN BAY (WKOW) — The Packers have placed rookie tight end Jace Sternberger on the injured reserve. The third-round pick out of Texas A&M is dealing with an ankle injury.

The Packers are now down to three tight ends on the roster: Jimmy Graham, Marcedes Lewis and Robert Tonyan.

Sternberger’s status frees up a spot on the active roster. The team is reportedly set to promote receiver Allen Lazard from the practice squad.

 The Packers signed Lazard late last season. He was active for the season finale. Lazard played well in the preseason but did not make the initial 53-man roster.
