Coach Matt LaFleur relayed Monday that the Packers expect to know more about Watson's right hamstring injury Tuesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Packers QB Jordan Love out-played Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes in a 27-19 win on Sunday night. (Not a sentence we expected to type.) Love completed 25 of 36 passes (69%) for 267 yards (7.4 YPA), three TDs, and 0 INTs. He threw scores in each of the first three quarters and then led a pair of FG drives in the fourth to fend off Mahomes and Co. Love became just the second QB to toss three TDs vs. Kansas City this season. His 267 passing yards were the second-most the Chiefs have allowed in a game this year. Love has now strung together five straight strong showings. He's completed 66% of his passes at 7.9 yards per attempt with 11 TDs vs. two INTs over that span. Love has finished as a top-15 fantasy QB in all five of those games, including four straight top-12 finishes. He might have lost WR Christian Watson to a hamstring injury in this one, which would ding his going-forward outlook. But Love gets nice matchups the next two weeks vs. the Giants and Bucs. He's earned QB1 consideration.
Watson (hamstring) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Jordan Love threw three touchdown passes, two to Christian Watson, and Patrick Mahomes couldn't pull off his usual late-game heroics as Green Bay won its third straight.
Packers WR Christian Watson injured his right hamstring late in Sunday night's game vs. the Chiefs. That ended a strong outing for Watson, who finished with seven catches for 71 yards and two TDs, plus 15 rushing yards. We'll see about the severity of this hamstring injury and when we can expect Watson back.
