Coach Matt LaFleur wouldn’t comment on the severity after the game, but was emotional in talking about the impact Tonyan has on the offense and the team.
“I’m sick for Bobby. He means so much to this team,” LaFleur said. “I am sick for him. I am sick for us. Just my heart goes out to him.”
Tonyan had a breakout season in 2020, catching 52 passes for 586 yards and 11 touchdowns. His numbers were down this season, but it appeared he was starting to round into shape. He had four catches for 63 yards and a touchdown last week against Washington and had three catches for 49 yards against the Cardinals before going down.
Hill was injured on a kickoff in the third quarter when he and Jonathan Ward collided. Both players were carted off the field. The rookie running back was used mostly as Green Bay’s kick returner this season.
