Ripkowski was selected in the sixth round (206th overall) by the Green Bay Packers in the 2015 NFL Draft. On May 8, 2015, he signed a contract with the Packers. In his rookie season, Ripkowski was the Packers' backup fullback behind veteran John Kuhn. He appeared in 15 games, finishing the year with nine tackles on special teams. Ripkowski recorded his first career NFL reception, an 18-yard catch and run from quarterback Aaron Rodgers against the Carolina Panthers in Week 9.

He finished the 2016 regular season with 34 carries for 150 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns to go along with nine receptions for 46 receiving yards and one receiving touchdown. The Packers finished with a 10-6 record and made the playoffs. In the Wild Card Round against the New York Giants, he had two carries for one rushing yard and one rushing touchdown to go along with two receptions for 11 receiving yards in the 38-13 victory. In the Divisional Round against the Dallas Cowboys, he had four carries for 24 rushing yards in the 34-31 victory.
