Equanimeous St. Brown News

New competition at receiver

After the bears selected Velus Jones in the third round of the 2022 draft, St. Brown may face an uphill battle for playing time Adam Jahns of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: In the Bears quest to add speed to their receiver room in the offseason, St. Brown and Byron Pringle were added in free agency. However, now that the Bears used the No. 71 pick in the draft to select Jones, who ran a 4.31 40-yard dash, St. Brown is expected to enter training camp outside the top-three receivers on the depth chart.

Officially signs with Chicago

St. Brown has signed a contract with Chicago, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.

Analysis: The Bears also brought in Byron Pringle as a free-agent signing after losing Allen Robinson to the Rams during the offseason, but St. Brown should still have a chance to compete for targets behind Darnell Mooney ahead of the 2022 campaign. During his third professional season in 2021, St. Brown hauled in nine of 17 targets for 98 yards while rushing three times for 14 yards.

Expected to sign with Bears

St. Brown is expected to sign a contract with the Bears on Thursday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

Analysis: St. Brown had a career-low mark in receiving yards last year, as he secured nine of 17 targets for 98 yards while rushing three times for 14 yards. The Bears lost Allen Robinson via free agency during the offseason, so St. Brown should have a chance to carve out a role behind Darnell Mooney in Chicago.

Limited role in 2021

St. Brown was targeted 17 times and caught nine passes for 98 yards over 13 games in the 2021 season. He also added three carries for 14 yards.

Analysis: St. Brown's 13 appearances were a career high, but the 112 yards from scrimmage he accumulated were a career low. He will be a free agent this offseason, so it remains to be seen if he will return to Green Bay for a fifth campaign or head elsewhere.

Snags two passes in Week 18

St. Brown was targeted five times and caught two passes for 22 yards in Sunday's 37-30 loss to the Lions.

Analysis: St. Brown could have had a huge day had quarterback Jordan Love had a little more time to find him on a deep route late in the contest, but he wound up making only a minor mark in the box score. St. Brown could see more snaps than he is accustomed to in the playoffs if fellow wideout Marquez Valdes-Scantling (back) misses any time, but even in that scenario he would remain behind Davante Adams, Allen Lazard and almost certainly Randall Cobb (groin).

Clears concussion protocol

St. Brown has cleared the concussion protocol and will play Saturday against the Browns, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

Analysis: St. Brown participated fully in practice Thursday, paving the way for him to suit up. Green Bay's fourth-string wide receiver has caught just six passes all season, but St. Brown could take on a larger role Saturday if Marquez Valdes-Scantling (illness) is unable to clear COVID-19 protocols by then.

Logs limited walkthrough

St. Brown (concussion) was limited at Wednesday's walkthrough.

Analysis: St. Brown suffered a concussion during the Packers' Week 14 win against the Bears. He didn't practice at all last week and was listed as limited on Tuesday's estimated practice report, so Wednesday's activity marked his first on-field work since picking up the injury. Clearly, he's making progress through the protocol for head injuries, but St. Brown likely has a few phases to complete before he officially gains clearance to play, which may make it difficult for him to be available Saturday versus the Browns.

Dec 22, 2021 2:18 PM EST

Limited at Tuesday's practice

St. Brown (concussion) was a limited participant at Tuesday's practice.

Analysis: St. Brown sat out Sunday's win over the Ravens after suffering the concussion Week 14, and Tuesday was his first time back at practice. The 25-year-old will need to fully clear the concussion protocol to have a chance of suiting up Saturday versus Cleveland.

Dec 21, 2021 2:38 PM EST

Not playing Sunday

St. Brown (concussion) is inactive for Sunday's game in Baltimore, Mike Spofford of the Packers' official site reports.

Analysis: Since sustaining a concussion last Sunday against the Bears, St. Brown made negligible progress through the protocol for head injuries, missing all three Week 15 practices. With the fourth-year wide receiver sidelined, Green Bay will roll out Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Allen Lazard, Amari Rodgers, Malik Taylor and Juwann Winfree at wide receiver.

Dec 19, 2021 12:03 PM EST

Likely out Sunday

St. Brown (concussion) is doubtful for Sunday's game at Baltimore.

Analysis: St. Brown suffered the concussion last week against the Bears and is expected to be sidelined for at least one game. Amari Rodgers and Juwann Winfree should serve as the Packers' depth wide receivers Sunday.

Dec 17, 2021 2:17 PM EST

Ruled out due to concussion

St. Brown (concussion) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Bears.

Analysis: St. Brown's evaluation revealed a concussion, ruling him out for the remainder of the contest. He'll need to clear the NFL's five-step concussion protocol in order to be eligible to suit up in Week 15 against the Ravens.

Dec 12, 2021 7:24 PM EST

Evaluated for concussion

St. Brown is being evaluated for a concussion Sunday against the Bears.

Analysis: If St. Brown tests negative for a concussion, he may be able to return to the game, but his return should be viewed as questionable at this point. He wasn't targeted before being injured but made one tackle.

Dec 12, 2021 7:19 PM EST

Quiet in victory

St. Brown was targeted twice and caught one pass for seven yards in Sunday's 36-28 victory over the Rams.

Analysis: After racking up a season-high 54 yards from scrimmage in Week 11, St. Brown barely made a mark in the box score in Sunday's victory. He did finish fourth among Packers wideouts in snaps with fellow receiver Randall Cobb (groin) leaving the game, and he is the player most likely to benefit should Cobb miss more time. Even in that scenario, though, St. Brown would not be in position to offer much help to fantasy players, as he would slot in fourth on the depth chart behind three other receivers.

Nov 29, 2021 8:45 AM EST

Makes impact in defeat

St. Brown had two receptions for 43 yards and one carry for 11 yards in Sunday's 34-31 loss to the Vikings.

Analysis: St. Brown got only three chances to make a play in Sunday's game, but he delivered each time and averaged a stellar 18.0 yards per touch. St. Brown has had some moments this season, but they have been few and far between, and he remains no higher than fifth on the depth chart when the Packers are at full strength.

Nov 22, 2021 10:14 AM EST

Logs full practice Wednesday

St. Brown (ankle) was able to log a full practice for the Packers on Wednesday.

Analysis: St. Brown was unable to suit up for the Packers in Week 10 after logging limited practices all week leading up to the game. Expect the receiver to be on track to play in Week 11 barring any setbacks. If he's unable to play, St. Brown's absence won't have a major impact on the offense.

Nov 17, 2021 6:25 PM EST

Won't play Sunday

St. Brown (ankle) is inactive Sunday against the Seahawks, Mike Spofford of the Packers' official site reports.

Analysis: St. Brown was a limited participant at practice all week. With the Packers' wide receiver unit, aside from St. Brown himself, back at full strength his absence will not heavily impact the Packers' offense.

Nov 14, 2021 12:20 PM EST

Questionable versus Seahawks

St. Brown (ankle) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's matchup with Seattle, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: St. Brown was limited at practice all week and is looking like a true game-time decision. Aside from him, the Packers' wideout group is back at full strength, so he would slot in as the No. 5 receiver should he end up getting the go ahead.

Nov 13, 2021 5:37 AM EST

Limited in Thursday's practice

St. Brown (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice session.

Analysis: St. Brown has had his reps capped at practice on each of the last two days. If he hopes to avoid an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, he'll likely need to log a full practice session Friday.

Nov 11, 2021 3:06 PM EST

Quiet night despite shortages

St. Brown secured two of three targets for 12 yards in the Packers' 24-21 win over the Cardinals on Thursday night.

Analysis: The fourth-year wideout was in line for a much bigger workload than usual with the multiple absences at receiver for the Packers, but he ultimately was still relegated to a complementary role. The heavy use of Aaron Jones as an extra pass-catching option was partly responsible for St. Brown's modest opportunities, although his reception and receiving yardage tallies still qualified as season highs since he'd come in with just one catch for no gain on the season. Assuming Davante Adams and Allen Lazard have cleared COVID-19 protocols and even Marquez Valdes-Scantling (hamstring) is off injured reserve by the time the Week 9 road showdown with the Chiefs rolls around a week from Sunday, St. Brown could be back scrounging for targets near the bottom of the receiver depth chart.

Oct 29, 2021 5:04 AM EST

Could start this week?

St. Brown may have a top-three spot at wide receiver Thursday night against the Cardinals, Tom Silverstein of Packers News reports.

Analysis: Davante Adams and Allen Lazard are on the reserve/COVID-19 list, while Marquez Valdes-Scantling (hamstring) is uncertain to return from IR for Thursday's game. Randall Cobb is the safest bet for targets among Green Bay wide receivers, but St. Brown could be right in the mix for the snap lead, especially if Valdes-Scantling doesn't play. St. Brown played exactly 12 snaps in each of Green Bay's past three games, and for the season he has more special-teams tackles (four) than targets (three). He hasn't seen much playing time on offense since putting up 21-328-0 on 36 targets as a rookie in 2018.
