The Green Bay Packers are preparing for their match-up with the Detroit Lions this week. It is by far their biggest match-up of the season. If they win, they are in the playoffs. Today at practice a Packers player suffered an apparent injury that required an ambulance to come to the field.
Packers Player Rushed To Hospital After Injury At Practice
A member of the Green Bay Packers’ practice squad was transported by ambulance for treatment Thursday after suffering an injury during practice.
The player, who the team declined to identify, was injured in the hip/leg region. Due to the nature of the injury and the mobility challenges it presented, it was deemed best to transport him by ambulance, the team told FOX 11. The injury is still being evaluated.
A practice squad player apparently required an ambulance during practice today. Further information will follow as we find out more details. With everything that has happened in the last week in the NFL with injuries, it is important that these players are receiving immediate care when needed.
During Friday’s pre-practice press conference, LaFleur updated the media about what happened Thursday. According to Matt Schneidman with The Athletic, linebacker DQ Thomas sustained a femur fracture and rode the ambulance out of practice Thursday. The practice squad member had a successful surgery.
It appears like the update is positive for Thomas and the Packers, given the circumstances. The Packers have other injuries they’re worried about before Sunday night’s contest against the Detroit Lions. The Packers are preparing to play a must-win game to reach the Wild Card round of the playoffs.
