The Green Bay Packers will be hoping that a hamstring injury sustained by Darnell Savage in practice on Friday does not prove too serious.

Savage, the Packers' starting safety heading into the 2022 season, suffered the injury to his right hamstring during one-on-one matchups between receivers and defensive backs at the team's traditional "family night" at Lambeau Field.

The 25-year-old was covering Amari Rodgers, but had to watch the rest of the session from the sideline.

A first-round draft pick three years ago, Savage also had ice wrapped around his leg.

However, he was confident it was only a minor issue.

"I don't think it's a concern," Savage said, as reported by ESPN.

"It's a fast-people injury. Some of those things you can't avoid. I'll just handle it the right way and listen to those guys back there and I'll be all right."
