GREEN BAY, Wis. (NBC SPORTS)— The Packers already have an injury concern, as they try to retool their offense.
According to Michael Silver of NFL Network, Packers coach Matt LaFleur tore his Achilles while playing basketball Wednesday night.
One significant piece of the Packers' new-look offense will be severely hobbled during the rest of the offseason and beyond: New coach Matt LaFleur suffered a torn Achilles' tendon playing in a Knockout game on a Lambeau hoops court Wednesday night and will have surgery Sunday...— Michael Silver (@MikeSilver) May 31, 2019
The 39-year-old LaFleur will have surgery on Sunday, and will obviously be less-than mobile as he begins his first season with the team.
It will be interesting to see what accommodations they have to make for him, as his rehab will be considerable. He’ll be in a cart during the rest of OTAs.
