The Green Bay Packers snapped their four-game losing streak this past week by defeating the Los Angeles Rams 20-3 at Lambeau Field. The win was much needed and certainly provided some confidence in the locker room going forward.
This week the Packers are traveling to Pittsburgh to take on a Steelers team who is desperately trying to keep pace with the 7-2 Baltimore Ravens. If the Packers want to come out of Pittsburgh with a win, they’re going to need all hands on deck on offense. Today they got some good news regarding that possibility.
The Green Bay Packers Get Wide Receiver Christian Watson At Practice Today As “Full Participant”
In the clinching moments of the Green Bay Packers’ victory over the Los Angeles Rams, Christian Watson made a spectacular catch for 37 yards.
After getting up and taking a few steps, Watson collapsed on the turf. In addition to injuries to his chest and back, Watson was assessed for a concussion.
The Packers began preparing for Sunday’s game with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Wednesday, with Watson back on the field. He was “full go,” coach Matt LaFleur said.
Christian Watson absolutely caught fire in the second half of the 2022 season. Fans are hoping to see the same type of transformation during the second half of the 2023 season.
Due to injury, Watson has only appeared in five of the teams’ eight games so far this year. He’s totaled just 12 receptions for 213 yards and one touchdown this year. Fans remember his ability to take over games late last season, that is certainly something this team will need if they want to think about an improbable playoff push to end the 2023 season.
