The Green Bay Packers had a rough day on Sunday. They were defeated 15-9 by the Detroit Lions, their fifth consecutive defeat, and reportedly lost outside linebacker Rashan Gary for the season.
Rashan Gary tore his ACL against the Lions, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler and NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, and will miss the rest of the season.
Gary is one of Green Bay’s top defenders and has been putting up career numbers, making this loss even more painful. He leads the team in sacks, tackles for loss, and quarterback hits with six.
The Packers had a bad day all around on Sunday. Not only did they lose Gary in the loss to the Lions, but they also lost a number of other players.
Romeo Doubs, a wide receiver, was carted off the field with an ankle injury and later seen on crutches with a walking boot on his right foot. Aaron Jones was seen in a walking boot after leaving the game with a left ankle injury.
Cornerback Eric Stokes left the game in the first quarter due to ankle and knee problems, and he was also on crutches and wearing a walking boot. Christian Watson, a wide receiver, and Krys Barnes, an inside linebacker, both left the game to be evaluated for concussions.
After leaving the game on Sunday, none of those players returned. However, there has been some good news about Jones. Jones’ ankle tests came back negative, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, and he “should” be able to play against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10.
