A Packers rookie is likely headed to the injured reserve
The Green Bay Packers came into their game against the Detroit Lions hobbled. The Lions broke their legs. The Packers sustained multiple injuries to key players on Week 9 that will make wins this season much harder to come by. The Packers leading pass rusher, Rashan Gary, is gone for the season. It appears a Packers rookie wide receiver will miss a significant amount of the remaining season.
Romeo Doubs was seen favoring his leg on Sunday as he came back onto the sideline.

According to a report Monday by Ian Rapoport, Doubs sustained a high-ankle sprain. That injury usually takes a month or more to heal from. The Packers rookie will need some tests before the team knows how long Doubs will be out.
#Packers WR Romeo Doubs has a high-ankle sprain, source said. Those are generally 4-6 week injuries, though further tests will determine the timeframe. But another target for Aaron Rodgers to miss time.

Doubs will likely go to the injured reserve if he has to miss four to six weeks. The Packers rookies’ injury is another blow to the offense. The Packers, who could not trade for a pass catcher before the deadline, are without playmakers at wide receiver. The loss to the Lions showed how poorly the Packers’ offense is in the passing game. It caused the running game to look one-dimensional. They’ll have to figure out something before on the NFL’s best defenses via the Dallas Cowboys come to Green Bay in Week 10.
