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.

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).

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.

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.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Overcomes minor knee issue

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

Analysis: The second-year pro was held out of Sunday's practice after finishing with no catches on one target in Thursday's preseason win over the Texans. St. Brown doesn't seem to have any momentum toward pushing Geronimo Allison or Marquez Valdes-Scantling out of a top-three role, instead competing with Jake Kumerow, J'Mon Moore and Trevor Davis (neck) for slotting at the bottom of the depth chart.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Exits with knee injury

St. Brown exited Sunday's practice early with a knee injury, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: St. Brown injury hasn't been clarified and it may be a minor issue. His absence will open up extra reps for Jake Kumerow, J'Mon Moore, and Darrius Shepherd.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Scores on special teams

St. Brown didn't haul in his lone target in Thursday's 28-26 preseason win over the Texans, but he did recover a fumbled punt for a touchdown.

Analysis: St. Brown capitalized on a muffed punt, hitting the ball and finally gaining possession of it in the end zone to open the scoring toward the end of the first quarter. While that marked a significant contribution, the wideout was hardly involved on offense. Perhaps more importantly, he was observed entering the medical tent at one point, and although the lack of any follow-up reporting suggests he's fine, it's a situation that may be worth circling back on ahead of next week's exhibition outing against the Ravens.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Gets some reps with starters

St. Brown got some work with the starting offense during the offseason program, Wes Hodkiewicz of Packers.com reports.

Analysis: Davante Adams, Geronimo Allison and Marquez Valdes-Scantling reportedly got most of the first-team reps, with St. Brown, Jake Kumerow, Trevor Davis and J'Mon Moore also mixing in. St. Brown seems to have made a full recovery from the concussion that held him out for Week 17 of his rookie season, but he's no lock to stick on the 53-man roster for the start of the 2019 campaign. Allison, Valdes-Scantling and Kumero all seem to have made a stronger impression during the offseason program.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Sits finale, as expected

St. Brown (concussion) is inactive Sunday against Detroit.

Analysis: St. Brown's presence on the inactive list comes as little surprise, as the wideout entered the week with a doubtful tag after failing to take the practice field. The rookie is coming off his best game of the season with five catches for 94 yards in Week 16, but he'll be unavailable to keep that momentum going in the regular season finale. With Davante Adams (knee) also on the inactive list, the Green Bay receiving corps will be led by Randall Cobb and Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Not expected to play

St. Brown (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Lions, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: St. Brown's presumed absence is partially cancelled out by the return of Randall Cobb from a concussion of his own, but this will still be a shaky receiving corps if Davante Adams (knee) can't go. Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Jake Kumerow are the top candidate to absorb St. Brown's vacated snaps, with the rookie sixth-round pick robbed of the opportunity to continue his late-season momentum. St. Brown caught five passes for 94 yards in last week's win over the Jets, improving his rookie-year efficiency marks to 15.6 yards per catch and 9.1 per target. He's likely earned the opportunity to compete for a starting job in 2019.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Remains spectator at practice

St. Brown (concussion) wasn't participating in the portion of Thursday's practice that was available to the media, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

Analysis: The rookie was at least able to get in some cardio work off to the side on a stationary bike, but he'll go down as a non-participant for the second straight practice. The Packers would likely need to see St. Brown advance to at least limited participation Friday to feel good about his chances to play in the season finale Sunday against the Lions. St. Brown is coming off a strong Week 16 performance in the win over the Jets, during which he hauled in all five of his targets for 94 yards. If he suits up in Week 17, St. Brown would likely work ahead of fellow first-year player Marquez Valdes-Scantling in three-receiver formations.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Misses practice with concussion

St. Brown (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: St. Brown was removed from Sunday's 44-38 win over the Jets midway through the fourth quarter, finishing with five catches for 94 yards on five targets. He's probably hoping for a chance to build on the breakout performance, but the Packers might prefer a cautious approach when dealing with a brain injury ahead of a Week 17 game that's devoid of playoff implications. Fellow wideouts Davante Adams (knee) and Randall Cobb (concussion) also missed practice Wednesday, though the former said he expects to play Sunday against the Lions.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Suffers head injury

St. Brown is under evaluation for a head injury suffered Sunday against the Jets.

Analysis: At the point of his departure midway through the fourth quarter, St. Brown led the Packers with 94 yards on his five receptions. If he enters the concussion protocol, he would be in danger of missing the final game of his rookie campaign.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Looking like Packers' third wideout

St. Brown caught one pass for seven yards in Sunday's loss to the Bears.

Analysis: St. Brown was targeted three times for the second week in a row, but he did not make any noticeable impact in Week 15. His snap count did rise for the second week in a row, and he seems to have overtaken Marquez Valdes-Scantling for the No. 3 receiver spot on the Packers' depth chart. That does give him a small bit of intrigue for those looking for deep sleepers in Week 16, as the Packers will square off against a Jets defense that has been routinely beaten by opposing wide receivers all season. Still, with just three receptions for 19 yards over the last three weeks, there is not a lot in his favor outside the boost in playing time.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Third in snaps among Packers receivers

St. Brown caught two passes for 12 yards in Sunday's victory over the Falcons.

Analysis: St. Brown played more snaps than fellow rookie wideout Marquez Valdes-Scantling for the first time this season, but he still finished fourth on the team in targets -- third among receivers -- and failed to reach the 20-yard mark for the fifth time in six games. He figures to continue playing a ancillary role as long as the Packers remain in playoff contention.

December 10, 2018 8:03 AM EST

Equanimeous St. Brown: Snap count takes hit

St. Brown played 15 snaps but was not targeted in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

Analysis: St. Brown averaged 37 snaps between Weeks 10-12, but his playing time took a hit Sunday with fellow receivers Randall Cobb and Jake Kumerow returning from injuries. St. Brown figures to remain involved to some degree the rest of the way, but he was not very productive during the three-week streak previously mentioned -- he averaged just 24 yards per game -- and now finds himself back in the No. 4 spot on the Packers' wide-receiver ladder.

Equanimeous St. Brown: Avoids injury designation

St. Brown (elbow) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against Arizona, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Analysis: St. Brown never advanced beyond limited participation in practice this week, but the lack of designation suggests any restrictions the wideout faced were likely maintenance-related. Though the elbow issue shouldn't impact St. Brown's usage in Week 13, the potential return of Randall Cobb (hamstring) might limit the rookie's involvement in three-receiver formations.
