Kumerow (shoulder) did not practice Monday, Jason Wilde of ESPN.com reports.
Kumerow suffered a sprained SC joint in his shoulder at the end of an 82-yard touchdown play during the team's second preseason game against the Steelers and has been held out of practice for over a week. The camp sensation has made a strong impression thus far, with six catches for 190 yards and two touchdowns in limited preseason action, but he'll need to get healthy sooner rather than later to secure a spot on the 53-man roster.
Kumerow is having tests on his injured shoulder, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Kumerow said the injury is nothing more than a stinger, but he'll apparently need tests to make sure it isn't anything serious. He's already made a strong case for a spot on the 53-man roster, catching six passes for 190 yards and two touchdowns through the first two weeks of the preseason.
Kumerow injured his shoulder in Thursday's game against Pittsburgh.
Kumerow has been impressive as he fights for a depth receiver role in Green Bay. He put up 114 yards and a touchdown on three receptions prior to his injury Thursday, including an 82-yard touchdown grab. It's unclear if he'll return to the game or if the team will rest him for the remainder to avoid making the injury worse. Regardless, the issue isn't thought to be serious and shouldn't effect Kumerow for long.
Kumerow caught three passes for 76 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason contest.
Kumerow has impressed since camp began and has even drawn praise from starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers, and he was able to keep the momentum going Thursday night. The Packers have a lot of intriguing young receivers fighting for just a couple roster spots, but Kumerow is no doubt part of the conversation.
Kumerow signed a reserve/future contract with the Packers on Tuesday.
Kumerow joined the Packers' practice squad in late December and was on the Patriots' practice squad earlier in the season. The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater product will have a chance compete come training camp next summer.
