Starting safety Darnell Savage exited Friday’s “Family Night” practice at Lambeau Field with a hamstring injury, giving the Green Bay Packers a small worry. However, Savage is not concerned that the summer illness will persist. He is one of the Packers’ defensive line’s most dependable players.
According to the Associated Press, Savage stated after the practice, “I don’t believe it’s a worry. It’s a speed-related injury. Some of those things are unavoidable. I’ll just manage things correctly and pay attention to those folks back there, and everything will be OK.”
Savage, the No. 21 overall pick in the 2019 draft, twisted his right leg while covering Amari Rodgers, a second-year wideout, and was forced to sit receiver the rest of practice with ice on it. Despite the absence of injured starting lineman David Bakhtiari and Elgton Jenkins and Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling, according to local media, the Packers defense was unaffected in the least. It continued to frustrate the Green Bay offensive.
