Green Bay Packers defenseman Darnell Savage suffered a hamstring injury during a family fight night at Lambo Field on Friday night.
Savage was injured during a one-on-one practice. He said Bill Huber of SI.com that he felt some tension in his hamstring while running and decided to turn it off for the night.
“I don’t think it’s a concern,” Savage said.
Coach Matt LaFleur didn’t seem particularly bothered either, though he said he was unhappy with his team’s fitness level.
Savage is in the starting lineup next to Adrian Amos in safety where the Packers lack depth and can’t afford a lasting injury. Vernon Scott replaced Savage on Friday night.
The Packers haven’t played in the regular season for over a month, so Savage has plenty of time to recover before Green Bay faces the Minnesota in Game 1.
