The Green Bay Packers have missed rookie wide receiver Romeo Doubs in recent weeks, but he looks set to make his return on Monday Night Football against the Los Angeles Rams.
Doubs hasn’t played since the Packers’ loss to the Detroit Lions in Week 9. His return will help Green Bay’s offense ahead of a crucial four-game stretch to close out the regular season.
Doubs said this week that he expects to make his return on Monday night against the Rams.
The rookie fourth-round pick was close to returning in the Packers’ final game before their bye week.
Doubs had practiced all week ahead of the Packers’ game against the Chicago Bears in Week 13, and he was listed as questionable on the injury report. However, the team decided to hold him out for one more game, which made sense with the bye week coming up.
Now, he is ready to go for Green Bay’s final four games.
Christian Watson’s breakout came the week after Doubs got injured. Since then, Watson has scored eight touchdowns in only four games.
Before Doubs got injured, he had been Green Bay’s most productive rookie wide receiver and was gaining Aaron Rodgers’ trust. Now we get to see Doubs make his return to play alongside Watson.
Due to different injuries, they haven’t had the opportunity to play together as often as they would’ve hoped so far this year. However, together, they can make an impact for the Packers in the final four weeks of the regular season.
If Watson can continue to make game-changing plays and Doubs gets back to his best, the Packers should have no trouble moving the football.
If the Packers are to make the playoffs, the offense needs to be consistent. Doubs and Watson will have a huge part to play in the coming weeks.
