Equanimeous St. Brown: Limited in practice Wednesday

St. Brown (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Analysis: St. Brown's knee injury, which forced him to spend the first five weeks of the season on IR, still appears to be lingering. That could partially explain why he played just 11 offensive snaps during Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers, failing to secure either of his two targets. Once St. Brown is fully healthy and has had the benefit of a few more practices under his belt, he could begin handling a slightly larger offensive role for the Packers.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Bit role in season debut

St. Brown was targeted twice but did not catch a pass in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.

Analysis: St. Brown was activated from injured reserve Saturday and made his season debut in Week 6, but he played only a bit role, taking the field on just 11 of the 63 plays the Packers ran Sunday. St. Brown showed some promise in his 2018 rookie season, and he could eventually become more of a factor in the Packers' offense. However, after missing all of last year and Green Bay's first four games this year due to injury, he's got some catching up to do.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Comes off injured reserve

St. Brown (knee) was activated off injured reserve Saturday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: It'll be interesting to see where St. Brown slots into the Packers' offensive plans, as the 24-year-old was a healthy scratch Week 1 before he injured his knee and was inevitably placed on injured reserve. While Davante Adams (hamstring) is back to health following the team's bye week, Allen Lazard (abdomen) is still slated to miss multiple games while the likes of Marquez Valdes-Scantling will stand in as the No. 2 wideout. A plethora of practice-squad additions such as Malik Taylor and Darrius Shepherd round out the depth chart, so it's entirely possible St. Brown could immediately emerge as the No. 3 option among the team's wide receivers given the third-year player's familiarity with the system and quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Status for Week 6 uncertain

Coach Matt LaFleur said Wednesday that he intends to see how St. Brown (knee) holds up in practice before making a decision about his Week 6 availability, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: The Packers officially designated St. Brown to return from IR on Monday, which kicked off a 21-day window for him to be evaluated at practice. The third-year receiver is thus eligible to return to action as early as Sunday's contest in Tampa Bay, though Green Bay could also wait until as late as Week 8 to activate him.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Practice window officially opens

St. Brown (knee) returned to practice Monday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: The Packers have officially designated St. Brown to return from IR, a transaction which kicks off his 21-day window to be evaluated in practice. The 24-year-old has missed Green Bay's last three games due to a knee injury, but he was a healthy scratch Week 1, so even if St. Brown is available against the Buccaneers on Sunday he may not handle a significant workload. With Allen Lazard (abdomen) expected to miss multiple games, however, St. Brown could see a limited uptick in offensive opportunities as long as he's able to prove he's fully healthy.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Lands on IR

St. Brown (knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: It's clear the Notre Dame product just simply can't stay healthy. After missing his entire second season due to an ankle injury, a knee issue will now keep St. Brown out for a minimum of three games. Considering he was a healthy inactive for Week 1, the loss will be minimal for the Packers offense, but it does whittle away at the team's already shaky depth at the position.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Ruled out for Week 2

St. Brown (knee) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Analysis: Brown was a healthy scratch for Green Bay's season opener, so it's unlikely that he would've had a large role on offense even if available Week 2. He put forth a 'LP/DNP/DNP' practice slate this week. With Brown sidelined, Malik Taylor will handle the entirety of reserve duties behind top receivers Davante Adams, Allen Lazard and Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

Equanimeous St. Brown: DNP on Thursday

St. Brown (knee) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: A healthy scratch for Week 1, St. Brown was limited Wednesday before a DNP on Thursday. Clearly, his health is a concern at the moment and threatening his odds to suit up Sunday against the Lions. The Packers will trot out Davante Adams, Allen Lazard and Marquez Valdes-Scantling as their top trio at wide receiver for the time being.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Limited practice Wednesday

St. Brown (knee) practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: St. Brown wasn't impacted by an injury at all last week, only to be declared inactive for the season opener at Minnesota. Just days removed from that deactivation, he's tending to a knee injury. With his health somewhat compromised at the moment, it's difficult to project when he'll get to connect with Aaron Rodgers this season. St. Brown is firmly behind Davante Adams, Allen Lazard, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Malik Taylor on Green Bay's wide receiver depth chart

Equanimeous St. Brown: Inactive for Week 1

St. Brown is inactive for the Packers' season opener against the Vikings, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: St. Brown is listed as the top backup at two spots on the Packers' depth chart, but the Packers will go with just four receivers Sunday, and Malik Taylor will get the nod as the fourth receiver. No injury has been reported for St. Brown, so it appears he is a healthy scratch for Week 1.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Top backup at two spots

St. Brown is listed as the backup at two wide receiver spots on the unofficial depth chart released by the Packers on Monday night.

Analysis: St. Brown missed the entire 2019 season after injuring his ankle in the preseason, but he is ready to get back on the field in 2020 and will essentially open as the Packers' fourth receiver. That won't lead to much of a target share for him early on, but he will be in position to play a bigger role should Allen Lazard and/or Marquez Valdes-Scantling falter.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Slated to practice Saturday

GM Brian Gutekunst said St. Brown (ankle) is expected to take part in the Packers' first practice of training camp Saturday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: St. Brown may be the forgotten man among Green Bay receivers after missing the entire 2019 campaign due to a high-ankle sprain. The decision by offseason acquisition Devin Funchess to opt out of the season has placed the onus on the likes of Allen Lazard, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and St. Brown to step up alongside clear No. 1 Davante Adams. St. Brown showed promise as a rookie sixth-rounder in 2018, fueling his 15.6 yards per catch and 9.1 yards per target with five receptions of greater than 20 yards. A strong camp could vault St. Brown up the depth chart, but Lazard is poised to handle the other starting spot once Week 1 arrives.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Chance to rebound in 2020

St. Brown (ankle) should have the opportunity to be a factor among Green Bay's wideouts in 2020, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: The 23-year-old had similar expectations entering the 2019 season, but he went down with an ankle injury during the preseason and spent all year on injured reserve. The Packers swapped out Geronimo Allison for Devin Funchess this offseason but didn't make any other significant additions, so St. Brown remains in position to earn solid playing time despite the lost year. The 2018 sixth-round pick figures to compete with Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Jake Kumerow and Reggie Begelton for reps as the team's No. 4 wide receiver, while Davante Adams, Allen Lazard and Funchess sit atop the depth chart.

Equanimeous St. Brown: No action in 2019

St. Brown (ankle) spent the entire 2019 season on injured reserve and did not appear in any games.

Analysis: St. Brown had a chance to carve out a regular role in the Packers' offense in his second season, but that changed when he suffered a high-ankle sprain during the preseason and was placed on season-ending injured reserve during final cuts. It's not exactly clear where St. Brown stands in his recovery, but as long as he is healthy when training camp rolls around, he will find himself in the same spot he was heading into the 2019 campaign.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Sheds mobility scooter

St. Brown (ankle) is no longer utilizing a mobility scooter and is moving around unassisted, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Analysis: St. Brown appears to be progressing nicely from the high-ankle sprain sustained during the third preseason game that led to him being place on injured reserve. The 22-year-old isn't eligible to return this season since he wasn't included on the Packers' initial 53-man roster.

September 9, 2019 1:01 PM EST

Equanimeous St. Brown: Out for season

St. Brown (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Saturday and will miss the entire 2019 season, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: St. Brown could have been brought back at some point if he would have been included on the initial 53-man roster prior to being placed on injured reserve, but the Packers have decided to shut him down for the entire season after the receiver was only initially expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks. St. Brown being held off the roster creates room for former undrafted free agent Darrius Shepherd.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Out at least four weeks

St. Brown is expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks after an MRI revealed a high-ankle sprain, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: St. Brown suffered the injury in Thursday's preseason game against Oakland, ending his bid for a Week 1 depth role. The Packers may consider placing him on injured reserve, but they'll need to wait until rosters cut down to 53 players if they want the option of bringing St. Brown back for the second half of the season. His absence should lock in Jake Kumerow and Trevor Davis for roster spots, while Darrius Shepherd, Allen Lazard (shoulder) and J'Mon Moore now have better odds if the Packers decide to keep a sixth wide receiver.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Using crutches after game

St. Brown (leg) left the locker room on crutches after Thursday's preseason game against Oakland, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: A big hit sent St. Brown to the sideline and later on a cart back to the locker room. His use of crutches and a walking boot suggests the injury is at least somewhat serious, likely putting him in danger of missing Week 1. Prior to the injury, St. Brown had been fighting for the fourth or fifth spot at wide receiver, competing against Jake Kumerow, Trevor Davis, Darrius Shepherd and Allen Lazard (shoulder).

August 23, 2019 7:33 AM EST

Equanimeous St. Brown: Sustains leg injury Thursday

St. Brown left Thursday's preseason contest against Oakland with an apparent left leg injury, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Analysis: St. Brown caught a slant over the middle and took a big hit up high, but the damage was seemingly done to his left leg, which appeared to get caught in the turf prior to the hit. It's unclear exactly how serious the injury is, but the 22-year-old had to be helped off the field and eventually carted to the tunnel entrance. If St. Brown were to miss significant time, his absence could provide meaningful reps for Trevor Davis or Darrius Shepard.

August 22, 2019 6:45 PM EST

Equanimeous St. Brown: No catches Thursday

St. Brown didn't catch his lone target in Thursday night's 26-13 preseason loss to the Ravens.

Analysis: St. Brown was again hardly involved in the Packers' passing game, as he's yet to make a catch through two preseason tilts. Although he overcame a slight knee issue to suit up this week, St. Brown will surely aim to make a bigger impact next Thursday versus the Raiders, especially with fellow wideouts Jake Kumerow, Darrius Shepard and Allen Lazard impressing so far.
