Injury update: Green Bay Packers shares concerning Updates

The Green Bay Packers improved to 6-6 on the season with a spectacular Week 13 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football. The Packers’ victory moved them up to the seventh seed in the NFC playoff standings. Sadly, they suffered a difficult blow to their victory when they lost their top wide receiver, Christian Watson, to what appeared to be a hamstring injury late in the contest.

Given Watson’s history of injuries, it is obvious how serious this could get. In his brief career, hamstring problems have already cost him a great deal of time.

Over the last few weeks, Watson has finally been looking like the potential star that the Packers saw last year. He has become Jordan Love’s No. 1 target once again, but that could all come to an abrupt end for the time being if the injury turns out to be something serious.

Packers Coach Provides Concerning Injury Update On Christian Watson

On Monday following the big win, Packers’ head coach Matt LaFleur was asked about Watson’s injury. His response gives reason for major concern in Green Bay. It was short and brief.

“We don’t know yet.”

For the final stretch, the Packers absolutely need their best wide receiver to be on the field. They will probably need to win four out of their final five games to qualify for the playoffs.

In the last two weeks of the season, Green Bay will play the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears in some tough division rivalry games. They’ll play the Carolina Panthers in Carolina, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Lambeau Field, and the New York Giants in New York before that. While they should be able to handle things, none of those games will be “easy” wins.

Watson has caught 28 passes for 422 yards and five touchdowns so far this season in nine games. Although injuries have been a major problem for him, those numbers are still far below what was predicted of him.

Watson, who is only 24 years old, has all the makings of a successful wide receiver for the Packers. Right now, all they can do is hope he continues to be well.

When the Packers play the Giants in New York the following week, be sure to tune in to see if they can extend their winning streak to four games. On Monday Night Football, the game airs on ESPN at 8:15 p.m. EST.
