Packers rookie Rashan Gary says he’s ‘well’ after leaving preseason game
The Green Bay Packers had a big scare on Thursday night with Rashan Gary leaving on a cart, but it appears he may have escaped any serious injury. Gary posted on Instagram that “I’m well, thank you for your prayers and concern!”
During the second quarter of the Packers 22-21 loss, Gary went to tackle Oakland Raiders running back James Butler from behind. He laid on the field after the play and eventually had to be carted off back into the locker room. Gary has also dealt with a shoulder injury during camp.
The Packers didn’t play many starters on Thursday because of concerns about the field, but the team is trying to get Gary as many reps as he can as he tries to adjust to life in the NFL.
There were some questions if the game would even be played because of a hole in each end zone that was a safety hazard. Both teams agreed to make the field only 80 yards and to play the game as scheduled.
“We made the adjustments we felt were in the best interest of our football team, and we moved forward,” Green Bay head coach Matt LaFleur said, via Packers.com. “It was a combination of a lot of things I really don’t want to get into right now. It is what it is. They weren’t playing their guys and I just didn’t want to put our guys at risk.”
There was no team update given by the team about Gary after the game, but his Instagram post seems to suggest that everything is going to be good.
