St. Brown (knee) will play in Sunday's game versus the Texans. St. Brown was limited in practice all week as a precaution, and he's been given the green light for a second straight week. The third-year receiver out of Notre Dame had a tough 2020 debut, failing to reel in either of his two targets and logging just 11 offensive snaps. Malik Taylor is pushing him for the No. 3 wideout role, so St. Brown will look to have a big game against a Texans secondary that has let up 246.5 passing yards per game -- 20th in the league.
St. Brown (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. The Packers are likely just managing St. Brown's practice load carefully after he was activated from injured reserve last week after missing the team's first four games. He played 11 offensive snaps in his season debut in the Packers' 38-10 loss to the Buccaneers, failing to secure either of his two targets. Once St. Brown is fully healthy and has had the benefit of getting a few more practices under his belt, he could begin handling a slightly larger role on offense.
St. Brown was targeted twice but did not catch a pass in Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Buccaneers. St. Brown was activated from injured reserve Saturday and made his season debut Week 6, but he played only a bit role, taking the field on just 11 of the 63 plays the Packers ran Sunday. He 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.
St. Brown (knee) was activated off injured reserve Saturday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. 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.
Coach Matt LaFleur said Wednesday that he intends to see how St. Brown (knee) holds up in practice this week before making a decision about his availability for Sunday's game at Tampa Bay, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. The Packers officially designated St. Brown to return from injured reserve Monday, opening a 21-day window for him to be evaluated at practice. The third-year receiver is thus eligible to return to action Week 6, though Green Bay could also wait until as late as Week 8 to activate him.
