Romeo Doubs has been in the headlines for the Green Bay Packers over the last month or so. He has worked very hard throughout the preseason. Doubs was developing chemistry with quarterback Jordan Love throughout the process.
Week 1 of the NFL regular season is not far away as the Packers will be on the road against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, September 10. Romeo Doubs has not practiced for Green Bay over the week with his hamstring injury. It is unknown what caused the injury, but Doubs is in danger of potentially missing the Week 1 contest.
A lot more information will be known when this upcoming Wednesday rolls around. There are reasons why it would not be ideal for Romeo Doubs to miss the first game of the 2023 regular season. One of those reasons would not be Christian Watson taking his spot because he is the number one wide receiver on this roster.
Romeo Doubs Missing the First Week Means That the Rookies Have the Potential To Make their case
One of the things that people say that the NFL stands for is not for long. Romeo Doubs not playing in Week 1 opens the door for Jayden Reed as a rookie. Another rookie that potentially opens up the door is undrafted rookie Malik Heath.
On Wednesday, rookie Dontayvion Wicks was also out of practice due to injury. It will also be interesting to see what his playing status will be come next week heading into Week 1. If Wicks is out also, Malik Heath, an undrafted rookie from Ole Miss who also had strong preseason play, can potentially show out as well.
It is out of Romeo Doubs’ control that he has a hamstring injury and injuries happen in the NFL. It would be a shame if Doubs had to miss time due to injury and someone else took his spot after all of the hard work he put in this offseason to be successful in his second NFL season out of Nevada to make a name for himself.
