Green Bay Packers rookie tight end Colt Lyerla will be out “weeks” with a knee injury. He suffered the injury while trying to hurdle a defender during Saturday’s Family Night practice.
The Packers expect to be without the rookie tight end for the bulk of training camp. It means the Packers group of tight ends trying to make the team, drops from seven to six.
Prior to joining the Packers as an undrafted free agent in May, Lyerla hadn’t played football since he left Oregon on Oct. 6, 2013.
