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.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Pops up on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (back) was limited in practice Thursday.

Savage was not listed on the practice report Wednesday, so it's likely this issue cropped up since then. If it forces the rookie to sit out, Ibraheim Campbell could get extra reps Sunday against the Giants.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Jason Wahlers of the Packers' official site reports.

Savage was deemed a game-time decision, and he underwent pregame testing to determine his status. He was given the green light, though, so Savage will return to his starting strong safety role for the first time since he was injured in Week 5 against the Cowboys. Savage has 18 tackles, three pass breakups and an interception in five games this year.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Game-time call Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (ankle) is expected to be a game-time decision for Sunday's matchup against Kansas City, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Per Rapoport, the team feels optimistic that its 2019 first-round pick will be ready, but the official word will come an hour and a half before kickoff when inactives come out. Savage put in a full practice session this week after sitting out since Week 5 with the ankle injury. If he can't go Sunday, look for Will Redmond to get the start at free safety.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Questionable for Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (ankle) is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Savage was able to put in a full practice Wednesday but he regressed to limited participation over the last two days to earn the questionable tag. The rookie safety seems headed for a game-time decision in Kansas City after missing the last two contests.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Practices with limitations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

After being listed as a full participant in Wednesday's walkthrough session, Savage has taken a step back Thursday in the form of a limited practice. The rookie first-round pick appears to have a shot at suiting up against the Chiefs on Sunday, depending on what he's able to do in Friday's practice. Savage missed Green Bay's last two games.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (ankle) was a full participant for Wednesday's practice.

It was Savage's first practice availability since he suffered the ankle injury in Week 5 and he appears ready for a return to the field. The Packers haven't officially said Savage is playing Sunday, but his practice availability suggests he's ready. Likely to play, the 2019 first-round pick will assume his usual role as the team's starting free safety.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Ruled out again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (ankle) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Savage has yet to practice in any capacity since suffering an ankle injury Week 5. The rookie first-round pick will now miss a second straight contest, and a timetable for his recovery remains undisclosed.

October 16, 2019 09:16 PM
Packers' Darnell Savage: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (ankle) was listed as a non-participant at Wednesday's practice.

Savage has now sat out four straight practices since suffering the ankle injury Week 5 at Dallas. The 22-year-old will need to return to the practice field Thursday or Friday to have a chance of playing this week against the Raiders.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Will miss Monday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Lions, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Savage didn't practice all week after injuring his ankle in last Sunday's win over the Cowboys. Will Redmond has proved to be a versatile secondary member, so he'll slot in at free safety in Savage's place.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Non-participant Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (ankle) did not practice Thursday. According to Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the safety remains in a walking boot.

Savage sustained an ankle injury during Sunday's win over the Cowboys that forced him from the game. The donning of a walking boot is not an encouraging sign for his Week 6 prospectus, though the injury is thought to be minor. The Packers' only listed depth safety, Will Redmond, is also listed on the injury report with a shoulder ailment, so the Packers may need to get creative with their defensive packages Monday against the Lions.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Sports walking boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage was spotted wearing a walking boot on his left ankle Tuesday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Savage's injury was initially considered minor, and that may still be the case, but the Packers are taking the necessary precautions either way. The rookie safety played every defensive snap up until this injury, so his absence from the secondary could be troubling with a matchup against the pass-heavy Lions -- 35.3 attempts per game -- on Monday night. Keep an eye on his practice status when the first injury report comes out Thursday.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Ankle injury considered minor
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (ankle) is nursing a minor injury suffered during Sunday's win over the Cowboys, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Savage reportedly tweaked his ankle Sunday and isn't expected to miss significant time. The rookie first-round pick is being counted on as an every-down starter in Green Bay's secondary, so the extent of his participation in practice will be worth monitoring heading into a Week 6 divisional tilt against the Lions.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Exits with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage was forced out of Sunday's game versus the Cowboys with an ankle injury.

Savage's leg got caught up underneath a Cowboys' player as he was making a tackle, and Savage immediately hopped off the field without putting pressure on his leg. The rookie first-round pick played every defensive snap over the first four weeks, and the Packers will be left with just two healthy safeties -- Adrian Amos and Will Redmond -- in his absence. However, the Packers may bump Tramon Williams from cornerback if necessary.

Packers' Darnell Savage: First career interception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage had five tackles (four solo) and made his first career interception in Sunday's victory over the Broncos.

Savage just missed forcing a turnover in each of the Packers' first two games of the season, but he was finally able to seal the deal in Week 3. Savage has already assumed a key role in his rookie season and has been on the field for every defensive snap through three games.

Packers' Darnell Savage: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (shin) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Savage was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's estimated practice, making Thursday's full participation a notable step in the right direction. The rookie first-round pick appears to have worked through the bone contusion in his shin, and he's trending towards availability for Sunday's tilt against the Broncos.
