Packers CB Damarious Randall Out A Few Games Following Surgery For Groin Injury

Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports that Packers CB Damarious Randall underwent surgery over the weekend for his groin injury and is expected to miss a few games.

Although,¬†Demovsky says that this procedure won’t end Randall’s 2016 season.

The Packers’ secondary was supposed to be a strength for them this season but they’ve already had to place Sam Shields on injured reserve with a concussion and are now without Randall for an extended period of time.

Randall said he tried to play through the injury but it ultimately got worse by doing so.

“I was trying to battle through it,” Randall said a few weeks ago. “I was trying to help my team and be a tough competitor. But you know, I tried. There ain’t much more I can say.”

Randall, 24, is a former first-round pick of the Packers back in 2015, He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $7.916 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $794,806 for the 2016 season.

In 2016, Randall has appeared in four games for the Packers and recorded 15 tackles, one interception and three pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 112 cornerback out of 115 qualifying players.
