GREEN BAY, Wis. — Green Bay Packers coach Matt LaFleur says cornerback Eric Stokes probably won’t play again this season after he was injured Sunday in a 15-9 loss at Detroit.
“It’s looking unlikely, but I don’t have an exact update for that,” LaFleur said Friday.
Stokes, a 2021 first-round draft pick, hurt an ankle and knee in the loss at Detroit. Packers outside linebacker Rashan Gary, who has a team-high six sacks, suffered a season-ending knee injury in the same game.
“It is what it is,” Stokes said Wednesday. “That’s what I keep telling myself. Life happens. I know what I signed up for. So I know every chance I go out there, what I could be doing to myself.”
Stokes had started each of the Packers’ nine games this season. He has started a total of 23 games since the Packers took him out of Georgia with the 29th overall selection in the 2021 draft.
The Packers (3-6) will be trying to snap their first five-game losing streak since 2008 when they host the Dallas Cowboys (6-2) on Sunday.
