  • Packers' Darnell Savage: Leads team in tackles

    Savage had 10 tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 38-20 victory over the Bears.

    Savage reached double digits in the tackle department only once during the previous campaign, but he hit that mark in his first opportunity to do so in the new season despite being on the field for only 81 percent of Green Bay's defensive snaps. Only two defenders played more than Savage in Sunday's lopsided contest, and the 10 stops suggest he could help those who play in leagues that use IDPs.

  • Packers' Darnell Savage: Starts three preseason games

    Savage made a solo tackle in Saturday's 19-15 preseason victory over the Seahawks.

    Savage lost his starting spot at one point last season, but he wound up opening all three exhibition games with the first-team defense. He is on track to open the regular season as one of Green Bay's two starting safeties and will be looking to make more of an impact than he did in 2022 with free agency looming next offseason.

  • Packers' Darnell Savage: Takes step back in 2022

    Savage stacked up 58 tackles (43 solo), an interception and five pass deflections over 16 games in the 2022 season.

    Savage appeared in all but one game in 2022, but he also fell out of favor late in the season and was credited with a start in just two of his final five appearances. When it was all said and done, he wound up playing a career-low 84 percent of the Packers' defensive snaps. He will presumably remain in Green Bay with the Packers having picked up the fifth-year option on his contract, but his role is uncertain heading into the 2023 campaign.

  • Packers' Darnell Savage: Full go in practice Thursday

    Savage (foot) was listed as a full participant on the Packers' injury report Thursday.

    Savage has been sidelined since he went down with a foot injury on the first play of Green Bay's Week 12 loss to the Eagles. However, it appears he had time to fully heal up coming off the Packers' Week 14 bye. Savage recorded 42 tackles and two passes defended while playing nearly every defensive snap over the first 11 games of the season, and he should step back in at free safety Monday against the Rams.

  • Packers' Darnell Savage: Sitting against Chicago

    Savage (foot) is inactive Week 13 against Chicago.

    No surprises here, as a foot injury limited Savage to just one defensive snap in Week 13 and forced him to miss the entire week of practice. Rudy Ford -- who logged nine combined tackles on 79 defensive snaps last week -- should continue to serve as the primary free safety in Savage's stead.

  • Packers' Darnell Savage: Unlikely to play Sunday

    Savage (foot) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bears, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

    Savage sustained a foot injury last week against the Eagles and underwent X-rays that came back negative. However, he'll likely be unavailable in Week 13, which should lead to increased playing time for Rudy Ford.
