Green Bay Packers tight end Brandon Bostick's injury will keep him out of the rest of the preseason, and leaves his Week 1 availability in doubt, ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky reported Monday.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy told Demovsky: 

"He's going to be a couple of weeks. They were encouraged once they got all the testing done." 

Bostick was hurt three plays into his team's 21-7 win over the St. Louis Rams Saturday when he caught a pass. Bostick was expected to compete with 2014 third-round draft pick Richard Rodgers for the starting tight end spot in the absence of Jermichael Finley, who is currently a free agent after sustaining a spinal injury last season

The Packers play in the earliest game of the NFL regular season on Thursday, Sept. 4, when they face the Super Bowl-champion Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field. 

Bostick played in 11 games in the 2013 season, catching seven passes for 120 yards and one touchdown.
