Essentially, Funchess has been with the Packers for two years and hasn't played a single down. It's a tough break for the physical wide receiver who showed out in the preseason.

In Green Bay's preseason opener against the Houston Texans, Funchess was on the same wavelength as second-year quarterback Jordan Love. Funchess finished that game with 6 catches for 70 yards. Yes, it's just the preseason but Funchess was a big unknown and he stamped his spot after that performance as someone who could contribute in the Packers offense this year. Now he won't get that chance.

For Funchess, he's played in a grand total of one game since the 2018 season. After heading over to the Indianapolis Colts in the offseason of 2019, the wideout was hurt and placed on IR after just one game with the team. He then signed with Green Bay in 2020.

The trade the Packers made at the request of Aaron Rodgers to bring back Randall Cobb now looks much better with Funchess being out of the fold for the entire year. Green Bay has depth at wideout but Funchess added a much different element with his physicality and deceptive quickness. The Packers have plenty of burners like Cobb, Amari Rodgers and Marquez Valdes-Scantling but they didn't have someone quite like Funchess.

Here's to hoping it's a quick recovery for the wide receiver out of Michigan.
