The Green Bay Packers just suffered their first major injury of the 2019 season — because the HEAD COACH just popped his Achilles playing basketball!!!
Matt LaFleur — who just locked down Green Bay’s head coaching job back in January — reportedly shredded his lower leg playing a game of knockout on a Lambeau court Wednesday.
Per NFL.com’s Michael Silver — the 39-year-old tore the tendon and will have surgery to fix the issue on Sunday.
Silver adds LaFleur — a Sean McVay pupil — will now be coaching from a golf cart during Packers practices the next few weeks.
