Packers' Darnell Savage: Makes career-high 10 stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage made a career-high 10 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's victory over the Bears.

Savage did not do much early in the season, but something clicked for the 2019 first-rounder midway through the campaign, and he made a lot of noise in November and December. To be precise, over the final eight games of the regular season, Savage racked up 43 tackles (34 solo), a sack, four interceptions and 10 pass deflections.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Another solid outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage recorded five tackles (two solo), three passes defensed and an interception across 52 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Titans.

Savage continues to shine in coverage, as he recorded his fourth interception of the season (he had another dropped interception in the contest). Over the past seven games, he's been targeted 16 times, allowing just three receptions for 57 yards and no touchdowns.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Sack on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage recorded eight tackles and a sack across 68 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Lions.

Savage was dealing with a groin injury all week during practice but was ultimately able to lace them up Sunday and made a big impact as a result. It was the first sack of the young safety's career. He now has 54 tackles (40 solo), eight passes defensed, three interceptions, one sack and a fumble recovery across 12 games this season.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Ready to face Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Lions.

The 23-year-old was added to the injury report Friday with the groin issue, but it won't prevent him from suiting up for Sunday's divisional matchup. Savage went without an interception through the first nine games of the season, but he has three interceptions in the past two contests.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Late addition to injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Lions, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Savage made his first appearance on the injury report Friday, meaning he likely picked up his groin injury during the final practice session of the week. He'll be evaluated over the weekend and could be a true game-time decision Sunday. If Savage is forced to sit out, Will Redmond is the top candidate to start at free safety.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Picks off Hurts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage registered two tackles and an interception in Sunday's 30-16 win over the Eagles.

Savage's interception of Jalen Hurts just after the two-minute warning ended Philadelphia's hopes of erasing a late two-score deficit. All three of Savage's interceptions this season have come in the last two games.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (back) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game versus the Eagles, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

Savage's practice reps were capped all week after he logged a season-low 57 percent snap share in last week's win over the Bears. However, he's gained clearance for Sunday's NFC showdown and will start at free safety. The 2019 first-round pick has produced 44 tackles, seven pass breakups and two interceptions through 10 games.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Managing practice reps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice due to a back injury.

Savage appears to be managing the back injury that he suffered in Sunday's win over the Bears. He made a big impact in the game before departing, however, picking off Mitchell Trubisky twice in the win. Expect Savage's practice availability throughout the week to paint a clearer picture for his chances to suit up in Sunday's game against Philadelphia.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Hurts back after pair of picks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (back) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Bears.

Savage picked up his injury with the Packers nursing a large second-half lead, so he's likely to be done for the night as a precaution if nothing else. He intercepted Mitchell Trubisky twice before getting injured.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Ready for NFC North showdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (quadriceps) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Vikings.

The second-year man was able to participate in limited sessions throughout the practice week, providing at least a decent chance for him to make his sixth start of the season Week 8. Savage was removed partway through Green Bay's Oct. 18 loss to the Buccaneers because of the quadriceps injury, though ultimately he was only forced to sit out one game.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Questionable after limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (quadriceps) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Savage practiced on a limited basis in all three sessions this week, which is a marked improvement over last week, when he failed to practice all week before ultimately sitting out against the Texans. If Savage isn't ready to retake the field, either Raven Greene (oblique) or Will Redmond will fill in for him at safety.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Limited during Wednesday's session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (quadriceps) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Savage missed last Sunday's win over the Texans after sitting out practice all week, so he's taken a step in the right direction by returning to the field Wednesday. Will Redmond started in Savage's place and will do so again if the 2019 first-rounder can't shake his injury in time for this Sunday's game versus the Vikings.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Inactive as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (quadriceps) won't suit up in Sunday's game against Houston.

Savage came into the game drawing a doubtful tag after sitting out of practice all week, so this news isn't surprising. With Savage sidelined, Raven Greene is expected to draw the start at free safety, with Will Redmond in line to receive an uptick in special teams snaps.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Deemed doubtful for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (quadriceps) is doubtful for Sunday's game versus the Texans.

Savage left early during this past Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers due to a quad injury, and he's expected to miss at least one game after sitting out practice all week. Raven Greene is expected to start at free safety in Savage's place, though Will Redmond should receive a decent increase in his workload as well.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Misses practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (quadriceps) was a non-participant during Wednesday's practice.

Savage suffered the injury during the third quarter of last week's loss to Tampa Bay, and he failed to return to the field. It's unclear how serious the quadriceps issue is, but if the injury was to hold out Savage for Week 7, Raven Greene would be in line for the start at free safety.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Picks up quad injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (quadriceps) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Savage was forced off the field late in the third quarter. The second-year safety had five tackles (three solo) before exiting Sunday's contest.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Playing Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (groin) is active for Sunday's game in New Orleans, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Savage was a late addition to the Packers' Week 3 injury report, showing up Friday as a limited practice participant due to a groin injury and earning a questionable designation. Now that he's available to the defense, expect Savage to log his usual snap count, which has equated to roughly 90 percent of defensive plays and nine tackles in two games this season.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Questionable for Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (groin) was limited at Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at New Orleans.

Often, getting added to the injury report at the last second indicates an injury suffered in practice. In Savage's case, a groin issue resulted in a less-than-full session Friday. On the season, the second-year safety has played 90 percent of the Packers' defensive snaps, which has equated to nine tackles (five solo) through two games. If Savage can't participate in his full allotment of plays Sunday, Will Redmond and Raven Greene are the candidates to pick up the slack at free safety.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Productive rookie season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage appeared in 14 regular-season games in his rookie season and piled up 55 tackles (42 solo), two interceptions, two forced fumbles, and five pass deflections.

Savage stepped right into the starting lineup after being selected in the first round of the 2019 draft, and he occupied that spot all season except for the two games he missed in October with an ankle injury. Savage showed some of the playmaking abilities that that led to his early selection, and with a full season of professional football under his belt, the Packers will be counting on him to make even more plays in his second campaign.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (back) does not have an injury designation heading into Sunday's game against the Giants.

Savage put in a full practice Friday, a day after he was limited due to the back issue. He has made at least four tackles in four straight games.
