Packers WR Equanimeous St. Brown is likely out 4-6 weeks with high-ankle sprain
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown suffered an ankle injury during the team’s loss to the Oakland Raiders in their third preseason game. It appears a timetable has now been set for his return.
St. Brown was later seen walking with a boot on his left ankle. According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, he will reportedly be sidelined for the next four to six weeks.
Packers WR Equanimeous St. Brown suffered a high-ankle sprain in last night’s preseason game in Canada, source said. X-Rays were negative and the MRI indicated a high-ankle sprain that’ll likely knock him out 4-6 weeks.
The timing of the injury is hardly ideal for Brown with just one preseason game left before the start of the 2019 NFL season. Regardless, it is encouraging to see that the injury was not more severe after his leg got caught under him while he took a devastating shot on a slant route. He should have ample time to come back and potentially make an impact this season.
St. Brown had made quite the impression on quarterback Aaron Rodgers for the consistency he displayed throughout training camp and the preseason. The second-year wideout had been competing for an integral role in the receiving corps before the injury. He will certainly have his work cut out trying to pick up where he left off given the depth the Packers have on the outside.
St. Brown’s absence may help clarify the pecking order in the passing game heading into the regular season.
