  • Packers' Darnell Savage: Takes step back in 2022

    Savage stacked up 58 tackles (43 solo), an interception and five pass deflections over 16 games in the 2022 season.

    Savage appeared in all but one game in 2022, but he also fell out of favor late in the season and was credited with a start in just two of his final five appearances. When it was all said and done, he wound up playing a career-low 84 percent of the Packers' defensive snaps. He will presumably remain in Green Bay with the Packers having picked up the fifth-year option on his contract, but his role is uncertain heading into the 2023 campaign.

  • Packers' Darnell Savage: Full go in practice Thursday

    Savage (foot) was listed as a full participant on the Packers' injury report Thursday.

    Savage has been sidelined since he went down with a foot injury on the first play of Green Bay's Week 12 loss to the Eagles. However, it appears he had time to fully heal up coming off the Packers' Week 14 bye. Savage recorded 42 tackles and two passes defended while playing nearly every defensive snap over the first 11 games of the season, and he should step back in at free safety Monday against the Rams.

  • Packers' Darnell Savage: Sitting against Chicago

    Savage (foot) is inactive Week 13 against Chicago.

    No surprises here, as a foot injury limited Savage to just one defensive snap in Week 13 and forced him to miss the entire week of practice. Rudy Ford -- who logged nine combined tackles on 79 defensive snaps last week -- should continue to serve as the primary free safety in Savage's stead.

  • Packers' Darnell Savage: Unlikely to play Sunday

    Savage (foot) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bears, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

    Savage sustained a foot injury last week against the Eagles and underwent X-rays that came back negative. However, he'll likely be unavailable in Week 13, which should lead to increased playing time for Rudy Ford.

  • Packers' Darnell Savage: Dodges severe injury

    X-rays on Savage's injured foot revealed no structural damage Monday, Rob Demovsky of reports.

    The team will treat the injury Savage sustained during Sunday's loss at Philadelphia as a sprain, and he's expected to be available to return at some point this season. If Savage misses any game time, Rudy Ford would be the favorite to fill in at safety.

  • Packers' Darnell Savage: Won't return Sunday

    Savage (foot) won't return to Sunday's game against the Eagles.

  • Packers' Darnell Savage: Questionable to return

  • Packers' Darnell Savage: No injury designation for Week 1

    Savage (hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's season opener against the Vikings, Wes Hodiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

    Savage tweaked his hamstring during the team's Family Night practice at the beginning of August and was sidelined for the remainder of training camp. The issue was always described as minor, but the Packers remained cautious and have kept him limited since his return to practice at the end of August. The 2019 first-round pick has totaled 193 tackles, 26 pass defenses and eight interceptions across his first three seasons in Green Bay, and despite missing an extended period with the hamstring issue, Savage is set for another major role in Green Bay's improved defense.

  • Packers' Darnell Savage: Limited in practice Wednesday

    Savage (hamstring) was a limited participant during the Packers' practice Wednesday, Jason Wilde of reports.

    Savage returned to practice last week Sunday after tweaking his hamstring during the early phases of Green Bay's training camp in August. The starting free safety recorded 63 tackles and two interceptions while playing every game for the Packers last season, so his availability will be a top priority heading into the team's Week 1 contest against the Vikings. Should Savage's health fail to improve, then some combination of Dallin Leavitt, Rudy Ford and Tariq Carpenter would likely help fill in for the Packers' secondary this Sunday.
