Starting for the Packers on Sunday night, Darnell Savage was activated off injured…..

Although Darnell Savage was listed as one of the eight questionable players for the Green Bay Packers’ game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night, nothing seems dubious about his condition.

The fifth-year safety was never anything less than a complete participant during practice the previous week, and on Saturday he was formally activated off injured reserve. Savage should be back in the starting lineup for the first time since October 22 if nothing goes wrong between Saturday night and 90 minutes before kickoff when the inactives are disclosed.

Following his best-of-the-season performance against the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving, Jonathan Owens would likely be moved out of the starting lineup upon his return. He scored a team-high 12 in the end.

“I simply believe he’s a man who has played a significant amount of football for us,” head coach Matt LaFleur stated on Friday. He’s a very good communicator, a rangy man, and he has a fantastic understanding of what we’re trying to achieve. He’s been bringing that for a while.”

After the team’s Oct. 9 defeat to the Las Vegas Raiders, Savage hurt his calf, and the bye week that followed didn’t exactly help him. He played against the Denver Broncos 13 days later, and the following week, he was placed on injured reserve after aggravating the condition. The Packers have managed to stay in the running for the No. 1 overall pick despite his five games lost due to injury.

Savage’s coverage has been targeted ten times in the six games he has played this season, and he has allowed eight receptions for 82 yards. Not only has he not given up a touchdown, but he has also not recorded an interception or a pass breakup. According to Pro Football Focus, he has missed 16.7 percent of his tackle attempts, which is lower than his career total of 17.3 percent and his lowest since his 2020 sophomore season.
