Darnell Savage in walking boot after Packers win

The Packers got a win on Sunday afternoon, but all the news from the day wasn’t positive for Green Bay.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that first-round pick Darnell Savage was in a walking boot after the game. Savage had six tackles, a forced fumble and a pass deflection that wound up as an interception by linebacker Preston Smith.

Savage wasn’t the only Packers safety to go down on Sunday. Raven Greene needed a cart to get off the field after getting hurt and he was also in a walking boot while using a scooter to get around after the game.

Updates on both players should come in the next day or two, but it appears the Packers might be a little thin at safety when the Broncos pay them a visit next weekend.

UPDATE 10:50 p.m. ET: Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports that Savage got kicked in the shin and is not thought to have a serious injury. He’ll have tests on Monday to confirm that’s the case.

  1. I think Savage will be ok from the kick to his shin, but I am not confident at all with Raven Greene being ok. Let’s hope for the best.

    Greene is a big part of the defense as a hybrid safety/linebacker and losing him for any period of time would not be a positive.

    Paging Mr. Minkah…


    That’s what I was thinking when Raven Greene was carted off. I’m starting to think there’s very little downside to the Pack going after him. Especially if they are in a “win now” mode. They’ve spent quite a bit in free agency, Minkah would help to protect that investment.

    Get it done Gutey.
