The Green Bay Packers are taking on the Carolina Panthers in Week 16 of the NFL season. Rookie wide receiver Dontayvion Wicks had been having a good game but appears to have suffered a chest injury.

Before getting hurt, Wicks had brought in both of his targets for 29 yards and a touchdown. Green Bay is already down Christian Watson and Jayden Reed so the lack of Wicks in the offense limits the team’s wide receiver depth even further. Wicks has had a quiet rookie season, but has played in 13 games and has brought in 31 of his 49 targets for 491 yards and a touchdown.

While Wicks is sidelined, Romeo Doubs, Malik Heath, Samori Toure and Bo Melton will be the primary targets for Green Bay quarterback Jordan Love. Green Bay is currently up 23-10 over Carolina.
