Packers wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown will miss at least the next three weeks.

The team announced that St. Brown has been placed on injured reserve Saturday. St. Brown had already been ruled out for the game due to a knee injury that kept him from practicing on Thursday or Friday.

St. Brown spent all of last season on injured reserve and did not play against the Vikings last week, so his last game action came as a rookie during the 2018 season. He had 21 catches for 328 yards after being selected in the sixth round of that year’s draft.

The Packers did not make a corresponding move to fill St. Brown’s roster spot, but they did promote tight end John Lovett and defensive lineman Willington Previlon to the active roster for Sunday’s game against the Lions. Both players will revert back to the practice squad after the contest.

    Gutekunst just can’t admit he made a mistake drafting St. Brown.
    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Maybe he’s waiting until it actually happens.

    Next Man Up.

    Scoreboard.

  2. Unlike his counterpart on the vikes whose mode is, you produce or your taking up space, Gutt thinks all his picks are keepers. This guy played at Notre Dame and wasn’t that good to begin with.

  3. Meh, it’s fine. Any fool can see this team is stacked at WR and have HOF at QB. They’ll probably be fine for a few weeks.

    ——————-

    His counterpart on the Vikes is the laughingstock of the NFL. $84 million guaranteed, remember?

  5. They didn’t need EQ to beat the “vaunted Zimmer defense” like a borrowed mule. We’ll just have to see if they can get past Detroit tomorrow without him.

  6. This isn’t half as noteworthy as the news that Aquasoflipheous Von Quartermaine sustained a season ending injury to his bicep.

  7. Not sure if 6th rounders can be considered busts, but it is funny that as little as he’s been available, he’s still got better stats than some team’s first rounders!

  8. Obviously, the injuries EQ has suffered, that have kept him from building on his promising rookie season, has been disappointing.
    And there’s been no definitive word on the severity of his knee injury.
    A lackluster training camp had already left him near the bottom rung of the Wr. room.

    The book hasn’t necessarily been written yet.
    Allen Lazard didn’t catch a pass until week 6 last year and still made an impact on the season.
    But he’s definitely got some ground to make up, and you certainly can’t do it from the training room whirlpool.

    The clock is definitely ticking on his career.
    And you simply have to be available on game days.
