Packers Draft Pick Offers Timeline for Injury Recovery

The Green Bay Packers were one of the busiest teams during NFL Draft weekend. The Packers were tied for a total of 11 selections in the draft. They added a lot of young talent to an already solid roster.

With rookie minicamps taking place and players getting their first taste of the league, rookies are providing some health updates ahead of the 2024 campaign.

Green Bay’s fifth-round pick Kitan Oladapo provided some insight into his status.

Kitan Oladapo spoke to the media on May 3 and provided an update on his injury. ESPN’s Rob Demovky stated that Oladapo currently has a boot on his left foot after breaking his big toe at the NFL Scouting Combine.

He was operated on in Charlotte by Dr. Bob Anderson and expects to be ready by training camp.

Training camp will begin in late July, which will give Oladapo about three months to recover before he has to take the field for valuable camp representatives.

Safety has been a weak area heading into the offseason and the Packers have certainly addressed it in recent months.

In free agency, they signed Xavier McKinney to a four-year deal worth $68 million. In the NFL Draft, they continued to add playmakers to that room. Green Bay drafted Javon Bullard, Evan Williams and Oladapo.

Over the past three seasons at Oregon State, Oladapo recorded 223 total tackles, 23 passes deflected, 13 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks and three interceptions.

He has the talent to play at the next level, but his current focus is on a healthy return to the football field.
