Equanimeous St. Brown expected to miss 4-6 weeks with ankle injury
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Equanmieous St. Brown suffered an ankle injury during Thursday night’s preseason game against the Oakland Raiders in Canada, and it is expected to keep him out through Week 1 and beyond.
St. Brown was diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain and is expected to be out for 4-6 weeks, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.

Aaron Rodgers and several other key players on both sides sat out Thursday night’s game due to concerns over the field conditions in Winnipeg, so you have to wonder if that played a role in St. Brown’s injury. The game ended up being played under some modified conditions.
Brown is expected to take on a bigger role in Green Bay’s passing offense in his second NFL season. He caught 21 passes for 328 yards last year.
