The Green Bay Packers put starting wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling on injured reserve Saturday.

Valdes-Scantling, 26, is dealing with a hamstring injury and will have to miss at least three games.

The team elevated WR Equanimeous St. Brown from the practice squad for Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Packers are using the COVID-19 replacement option for St. Brown; defensive lineman Tyler Lancaster is on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
