Report: Packers DT Josh Boyd has torn ankle ligaments, season in doubt

Monday September 21st, 2015

Green Bay Packers defensive tackle Josh Boyd’s season could be over after an MRI revealed torn ankle ligaments to go along with a broken bone, reports’s Ian Rapoport.

The Packers placed Boyd on injured reserve Monday.

According to his agent, Boyd is still waiting to hear from doctors just how severe the ligament damage is.

He suffered the injury during the second quarter of the Packers’ 27–17 win over the Seattle Seahawks and had to be carted off the field. 

The injury may require surgery, which would mean an 8 to 10 week recovery period. 

Green Bay hosts the Kansas City Week 3 on Monday Night Football.
