Former Michigan star Rashan Gary reportedly aiming to play through injury with Packers
Former Michigan defensive end Rashan Gary is having a breakout season in his third season with the Green Bay Packers. In the Sunday Night Football matchup against the Seattle Seahawks, Gary injured his elbow that looked serious.
Gary is not looking to have his breakout season slowed down by an injury. According to a report from Adam Schefter, he is looking to power through his hyperextended elbow with a brace this next Sunday on the road in a key NFC North matchup versus the Minnesota Vikings.
Schefter also reported Gary will get a closer look at his elbow with an MRI on Tuesday to further understand the significance of the injury. But as long as things check out, he will try and play through the pain.
Packers’ OLB Rashan Gary plans to brace his hyperextended elbow to see if he can try to play Sunday vs. the Vikings, per source. But Gary also has an MRI on his elbow scheduled for Tuesday to see if anything gets in the way of his plans.

In 10 games with Green Bay this season, Gary has accumulated 31 total tackles, 16 solo tackles, 19 quarterback hits, and 5.5 sacks. He already eclipsed his 5 sacks accounted for last season. The biggest difference is that Gary is playing outside linebacker with Green Bay’s 3-4 defensive front.
