Head coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday that Jared Abbrederis will miss "several weeks" due to a rib injury stemming from Sunday's loss to the Lions, Weston Hodkiewicz of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
McCarthy wouldn't reveal the nature of the ailment, but Abbrederis will seemingly be unavailable for the Green Bay Packers ' final two games of November (at Minnesota on Sunday and versus the Bears on Thanksgiving). The development is discouraging, as Abbrederis was coming off the first receptions of his career. With Abbrederis out, Ty Montgomery's (ankle) progress this week will be worthwhile to watch due to the Packers' lack of a contribution at wideout outside of Randall Cobb and Davante Adams in recent weeks.
Jared Abbrederis sustained a rib injury during Sunday's defeat to the Lions, Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
After hauling in the first catch of his career in the second quarter, Abbrederis didn't stop there, recording three more. On the back of a 32-yard catch, he racked up four grabs (on seven targets) for 57 yards, joining Davante Adams, Randall Cobb, James Starks, and Justin Perillo with at least 50 yards receiving. As the week continues, Abbrederis' practice reps could be limited, but he appears to have made inroads in the Green Bay Packers ' passing attack.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jared Abbrederis was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster Saturday, ESPN's Field Yates reports.
Davante Adams is doubtful for Sunday's game in San Francisco, leaving the team very thin at wide receiver. Abbrederis will serve as the fifth receiver on the depth chart Sunday.
Abbrederis was slowed by a concussion for most of training camp, that after suffering a torn ACL that knocked him out of the entire 2014 campaign, his rookie season.
Abbrederis tore his ACL in the fourth practice last year, but this year's injury didn't appear to be related to that.
"The way he fell, I don't think it was his knee," coach Mike McCarthy said, indicating that Abbrederis may have landed hard on his tailbone, per the Journal-Sentinel.
