The day of defensive injuries continues for the Green Bay Packers. After seeing Kentrell Brice and Mike Daniels depart practice with injuries, linebacker Jake Ryan left on a cart after suffering an apparently serious injury to his right leg, according to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky.
Ryan entered training camp as the front-runner to start at inside linebacker next to Blake Martinez. Ryan has dealt with serious leg issues in the past, suffering a torn ACL during his collegiate career at Michigan. Prior to his injury, Ryan’s most notable moment Monday came when newly acquired tight end Jimmy Graham beat him deep.
The severity of Ryan’s injury remains unclear, though typically players that leave practice on a medical cart don’t return for some time. Brice, who also left on a cart, did not return to action. Daniels, however, came back later in the session.
Entering his fourth year in the NFL, Ryan has appeared in 43 games while making 27 starts. He has recorded 137 tackles, a sack, and a forced fumble during that time.
