St. Brown (concussion) is inactive Sunday against Detroit.
St. Brown's presence on the inactive list comes as little surprise, as the wideout entered the week with a doubtful tag after failing to take the practice field. The rookie is coming off his best game of the season with five catches for 94 yards in Week 16, but he'll be unavailable to keep that momentum going in the regular season finale. With Davante Adams (knee) also on the inactive list, the Green Bay receiving corps will be led by Randall Cobb and Marquez Valdes-Scantling.
St. Brown (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Lions, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.
St. Brown's presumed absence is partially cancelled out by the return of Randall Cobb from a concussion of his own, but this will still be a shaky receiving corps if Davante Adams (knee) can't go. Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Jake Kumerow are the top candidate to absorb St. Brown's vacated snaps, with the rookie sixth-round pick robbed of the opportunity to continue his late-season momentum. St. Brown caught five passes for 94 yards in last week's win over the Jets, improving his rookie-year efficiency marks to 15.6 yards per catch and 9.1 per target. He's likely earned the opportunity to compete for a starting job in 2019.
The rookie was at least able to get in some cardio work off to the side on a stationary bike, but he'll go down as a non-participant for the second straight practice. The Packers would likely need to see St. Brown advance to at least limited participation Friday to feel good about his chances to play in the season finale Sunday against the Lions. St. Brown is coming off a strong Week 16 performance in the win over the Jets, during which he hauled in all five of his targets for 94 yards. If he suits up in Week 17, St. Brown would likely work ahead of fellow first-year player Marquez Valdes-Scantling in three-receiver formations.
St. Brown (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
St. Brown was removed from Sunday's 44-38 win over the Jets midway through the fourth quarter, finishing with five catches for 94 yards on five targets. He's probably hoping for a chance to build on the breakout performance, but the Packers might prefer a cautious approach while he deals with a brain injury ahead of a Week 17 game against the Lions that's devoid of playoff implications. Fellow wideouts Davante Adams (knee) and Randall Cobb (concussion) also missed practice Wednesday, though the former said he expects to play this week.
St. Brown is under evaluation for a head injury suffered Sunday against the Jets.
At the point of his departure midway through the fourth quarter, St. Brown led the Packers with 94 yards on his five receptions. If he enters the concussion protocol, he would be in danger of missing the final game of his rookie campaign.
