The Green Bay Packers are just 11 days away from their season opener against the Chicago Bears. They will have their first test on the road with new starting quarterback Jordan Love. Needless to say Love will have to get timing, accuracy and route running down as the new starter.
Standing alongside him are his wide receivers Christian Watson, Jayden Reed, Samouri Toure. Green Bay does have incoming rookie receivers who may see some action on the field, if one of the starting wideouts goes down. As of Wednesday, one Packers wide receiver has missed practice due to an hamstring injury.
According to Ryan Wood, Doubs says is leaving his availability up to the coaches on whether or not he will be ready to play in Week 1.

Romeo Doubs Stats with the Green Bay Packers in 2022
Last season as a rookie Romeo Doubs played in 13 games where he scored three touchdowns on 42 catches for 425 total yards. The 2nd year wideout did not have a breakout season as a rookie, but he did show little flashes as a pass catcher under former Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Doubs 2023 Preseason Numbers
In this 2023 preseason, Doubs caught three passes for 83 yards and one touchdown. He missed the last preseason game due to the injury, which he suffered in the previous week against the Seattle Seahawks
With the Green Bay Packers having a new starting quarterback, another wide receiver being on the field would certainly help Love get use to his young receiving core. They are the youngest team in football this season, so hopefully that one factor will pay off for the team, fans, and the entire organization as they all hope for excitement and a winning season.
