Safety Kentrell Brice left the Packers practice facility on a cart Monday afternoon after coming down awkwardly and staying down for several minutes according to reports.

The type of injury and its severity aren’t yet know and we’ll update as more information comes out from Green Bay.

Brice had been playing ahead of second-year safety Josh Jones at safety opposite HaHa Clinton-Dix, a position he’d only given up to Jones last season after groin and ankle injuries cost him his 2017 campaign. The 23-year-old undrafted free agent has shown flashes of physical potential, but has yet to be a consistent player for the Packers defense after two seasons.

Jones becomes the logical fill-in in the short-term, but a serious injury could cause the Packers to explore the free agent safety market. Starting caliber safeties Kenny Vaccaro and Eric Reid remain unsigned and could come in to provide valuable depth at a key position in Mike Pettine’s defense.
