The Packers are not expected to re-sign free agent OL J.C. Tretter.

It's become clear at the Combine that Tretter will have a hot market, and the Packers won't be able to match offers he receives. Tretter's 2016 ended due to a torn MCL in October. He underwent surgery on January 17. Tretter opened last season as Green Bay's first-string center, starting the first seven games.

Packers placed OL J.C. Tretter (MCL) on injured reserve.

Tretter had knee surgery this week. He was already ruled out for the postseason. A free agent, 25-year-old Tretter will likely have to settle for one-year offers.

Packers C J.C. Tretter underwent knee surgery on Tuesday.

Tretter started the first seven games of the season before suffering a sprained MCL. He hasn't played since. Corey Linsley has been starting at the pivot. Tretter is done for the year and is headed for free agency.

According to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Packers C J.C. Tretter is expected to miss "several weeks" with a sprained MCL.

This puts to rest any hope of Tretter suiting up for Week 9. He suffered the injury Sunday in a loss to Atlanta. Corey Linsley is expected to fill in at center.

Packers C J.C. Tretter is dealing with a "mild" MCL sprain.

Tretter got rolled up in Sunday's loss to the Falcons. He's week to week with an outside shot at playing in Week 9. Corey Linsley would presumably slide in at the pivot if Tretter can't go.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said J.C. Tretter will open the season as the team's starting center.

Tretter's quest was helped by a hamstring injury which has kept Corey Linsley on the sidelines since mid-May, but McCarthy made it clear Tretter earned the job on the field. "Tretter has had an excellent camp," McCarthy said. "J.C., in my view, has earned the starting position at center." Tretter made three starts last season.

Packers activated C J.C. Tretter from injured reserve/designated for return.

Tretter went on short-term I.R. in September after hurting his knee in the third preseason game. It's unclear if Tretter will return to his starting center position, with fifth-round rookie Corey Linsley dominating as a run blocker and grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 3 center. Tretter can play multiple spots.

The Packers are expected to place C J.C. Tretter (knee) on injured reserve/designated to return.

Tretter is expected to need only 5-6 weeks to recover from his knee injury, but the Packers don't have any other candidates for short-term I.R. and could use the roster spot. Barring a setback, Tretter will return when first eligible in Week 9.

Packers C J.C. Tretter's (knee) timeline is 5-6 weeks.

Tretter avoided ligament damage and will not need surgery. It's good news for the Packers, as Tretter will probably return early in the season. Green Bay may now have to turn to undrafted rookie Corey Linsley as its Week 1 center.

Packers C J.C. Tretter is out "multiple weeks" with a knee injury.

He suffered the injury in Green Bay's third preseason game. It sounds like Tretter won't be ready for Week 1 after missing his entire rookie year with a fractured leg and ankle. The Packers were counting on Tretter to start after letting Evan Dietrich-Smith walk in free agency. Center is now a trouble spot.

Second-year pro J.C. Tretter appears to have won the Packers' starting center job.

Tretter got the first shot at replacing Evan Dietrich-Smith, and ran with it. "Every day he's gotten better at something and he continues to grow that way," were the words of OL coach James Campen. It's impressive, as the 2013 fourth-rounder missed most of his rookie year with a broken ankle. He came off the PUP list in December, but played zero snaps.

J.C. Tretter is expected to get the first shot at the Packers' starting center job.

Tretter was the 122nd overall pick in last April's draft. He broke his leg and tore ligaments in his ankle during training camp and didn't play a single snap as a rookie. With Evan Dietrich-Smith now in Tampa, Tretter and Don Barclay should compete for center duties. Tretter is very athletic as a former college tight end.
