Despite a frightening collision at the Oakland Oakland Raiders home game Thursday night, Green Bay Packers rookie Rashan Gary avoided a major injury and returned to training on Monday.
"We are extremely lucky to see him again," said coach Matt LaFleur. said Monday. "We are happy to find him."
Gary was injured while he was attempting to tackle the Raiders. He pursued behind the game and absorbed an impact on the head and neck while tackling. He remained conscious and his limbs never lost mobility, but we saw Gary writhing in pain on the ground at IG Field in Winnipeg. He left on his own and was eventually returned to the locker room.
Gary's presence at Monday's training indicates that he's unlikely to miss Week 1 against the Chicago Bears in 10 days. It is unclear whether he will play in Thursday night's preseason final against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Packers have made Gary the 12th overall pick in the 2019 draft. Despite a quiet pre-season, the Packers remain confident about the good development of their development.
In the first week, Gary will probably be a player in the situation that will push the smuggler alongside semi-finalists Za'Darius Smith and Preston Smith in the assists.
The Packers also returned to left attack David Bakhtiari, who, like Gary, missed Sunday's training.
