Is Amon-Ra St. Brown playing tonight vs. Packers? Lions WR's availability status explored
Lions' primary wide receiver, Amon-Ra St. Brown, displayed remarkable resilience after a toe injury scare during Week 2's match against the Seattle Seahawks. The big question was whether he'd be fit for the Week 3 game against the Atlanta Falcons.
To everyone's relief, St. Brown was in action for last week's game against the Falcons, where the Lions secured a commanding 20-6 victory. Amon-Ra St. Brown showcased his prowess by hauling in nine receptions out of twelve targets, accumulating an impressive 102 yards in that game.
Heading into Week 3, Amon-Ra St. Brown showed no signs of lingering injury concerns and is set to take the field in the much-anticipated Week 4 face-off against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, September 28.
What happened to Amon-Ra St. Brown?
During the Seahawks game, Amon-Ra St. Brown faced a significant setback when he injured his toe in the second half. Remarkably, he returned to complete the game, utilizing a protective metal plate to support his injured toe.
In preparation for Week 3, St. Brown faced some limitations during practice due to his toe injury. However, as the week progressed, he returned to practice sessions. He was available to play against the Atlanta Falcons last Sunday, despite being listed as questionable.
Amon-Ra St. Brown's commitment to overcoming the injury was evident, as he wore a steel plate in his boot during the Falcons game to mitigate the effects of the injury he sustained in Week 2.
The Pro Bowl wide receiver continued to be a pivotal figure for Detroit, leading the team in catches, targets, and receiving yards in Week 3. St. Brown maintained his consistency by recording at least six receptions in each game this season.
Impressively, he either scored or surpassed 100 receiving yards in all three contests, demonstrating his excellent form as the team is heads into their Thursday night clash with Green Bay.
