Packers consider WR Romeo Doubs day to day with chest injury

Green Bay Packers receiver Romeo Doubs was evaluated at a local hospital after suffering a chest injury during Sunday’s 17-9 win over the Chicago Bears and is now considered day to day as Matt LaFleur’s team enters prep for the wildcard round of the playoffs.

“It seems to be he’s doing better, but he’ll be day to day, I’d say,” LaFleur said Monday.

LaFleur said Doubs was back from the hospital and in the locker room for the post-game celebration.

Doubs was injured on a failed catch attempt on the Packers’ first drive of the game Sunday. He attempted to return to the game but eventually left for good and was later evaluated back in the locker room.

Doubs’ second NFL season finished with 59 catches for 674 yards and eight touchdowns.

Even without Doubs and Christian Watson for most of the contest Sunday, quarterback Jordan Love still completed 27 of 32 passes for 316 yards and two touchdown passes. The Packers gained 432 yards on offense and didn’t punt over seven possessions.

The Packers will go into their playoff showdown with the Dallas Cowboys not knowing the playing status of Doubs or Watson, who are both injured. The team will put out their first injury report on Wednesday.
