Packers Rookie Wide Receiver Dealing With Concussion

He left Week 8 with a concussion and was unable to return.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Christian Watson was not seen practicing Wednesday either.

The rookie wide receiver returned from a hamstring injury for Sunday's loss to the Buffalo Bills, only to enter concussion protocol in the first quarter and miss the rest of the game. 

Watson is a speedy receiver who really helps open up Aaron Rodgers and the Packers' passing game. He could have a very large role once he gets healthy, especially is Allen Lazard misses more time, although Lazard returned to practice this week. 

Watson will need to work his way through concussion protocols to play in Week 9. So far this season, Watson has eight receptions for 64 yards on 12 targets.

The twenty-three year old was a second-round pick by the Packers in the 2022 NFL Draft.
