Darnell Savage in walking boot after Packers win

Mike Florio and Tony Dungy look at some of the unintended consequences that have started to arise from the new pass interference replay review rule.

The Packers got a win on Sunday afternoon, but all the news from the day wasn’t positive for Green Bay.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that first-round pick Darnell Savage was in a walking boot after the game. Savage had six tackles, a forced fumble and a pass deflection that wound up as an interception by linebacker Preston Smith.

Savage wasn’t the only Packers safety to go down on Sunday. Raven Greene needed a cart to get off the field after getting hurt and he was also in a walking boot while using a scooter to get around after the game.

Updates on both players should come in the next day or two, but it appears the Packers might be a little thin at safety when the Broncos pay them a visit next weekend.

UPDATE 10:50 p.m. ET: Rob Demovsky of reports that Savage got kicked in the shin and is not thought to have a serious injury. He’ll have tests on Monday to confirm that’s the case.
