Rashan Gary, OLB for the Green Bay Packers, Discusses His Elbow Injury vs.
The Green Bay Packers were forced to finish their 17-0 victory over the Seattle Seahawks without their sacks leader, Rashan Gary, in the lineup, but the young pass rusher appears unconcerned about his new injury.
Gary was forced to leave the Packers’ win over the Seahawks in the fourth quarter after a Seahawks defender landed on his right arm and bent his elbow in the wrong direction at the end of a play, leaving him down on the field in obvious pain until the trainers arrived.
Gary did not return to the field for the Seahawks’ final drive, despite Packers safety Adrian Amos intercepting Russell Wilson on the next play.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Gary has a hyperextended elbow, and an MRI is scheduled for Tuesday, November 16, to determine the severity of his injury. However, Schefter added that there is hope that the 2019 first-round pick will not have to miss any time, and that Gary is currently planning to brace his elbow and “try to play” in Week 11’s road game against the Minnesota Vikings.
With a hype-filled message to fans from his Twitter account, Gary reaffirmed the possibility of him playing against the Vikings next Sunday.
