Green Bay Packers tight end Jace Sternberger has been suspended without pay for the first two games of the 2021 season for violating the NFL substance abuse policy.

 

Sternberger, 24, is entering his third season with the Packers after being drafted out of Texas A&M in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

In his two seasons with the Packers, Sternberger has played 18 games, recorded 12 receptions, one touchdown and 114 yards. His lone regular-season touchdown came in 2020 against the Houston Texans in Week 7.

In the postseason, he has three receptions for 13 yards and one touchdown in two seasons. The touchdown came against the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game.

The Packers have Robert Tonyan, Marcedes Lewis and Josiah Deguara on the roster as tight ends. Deguara is coming off a torn ACL but should be ready for Week 1 against the New Orleans Saints.

Sternberger can take part in all offseason and preseason activities but can’t play until Week 3.
