During their “Family Night” practice at Lambeau Field on Friday night, the Green Bay Packers’ secondary took a hit. In one-on-one drills, starting safety Darnell Savage suffered a hamstring injury, but it is not anticipated to be serious.
Savage told AP, “I don’t think it’s a concern.” “It’s a quick-people injury. Certain of those things are unavoidable. I’ll just handle it correctly and pay attention to those guys back there, and everything will be fine.
After defending Amari Rodgers, Darnell Savage stood up while clutching his hamstring. He wrapped ice around his hamstring and sat on the sidelines for the rest of the workout. Savage, a first-round pick in 2019, has contributed significantly to the Packers’ defense over the past few seasons, and thankfully, this setback is only minor.
Green Bay is still getting used to life without Davante Adams, and the offense is still getting its bearings in the early going. The fact that linemen Elgton Jenkins and David Bakhtiari are out with injuries also doesn’t help.
Darnell Savage should be fine given that he still has a month before the season opener and that Matt LaFleur didn’t seem overly concerned about him. With 63 total tackles and two interceptions, Savage finished the year 2021. Savage should quickly be able to return to the field after receiving some rest and care.
