Green Bay Packers linebacker Rashan Gary participated in 11-on-11 drills Tuesday for the first time since tearing his right ACL last November.

Packers coach Matt LaFleur welcomed Gary back to the field as cornerback Eric Stokes took a step in the opposite direction. Stokes and Gary both suffered knee injuries Nov. 6 against the Detroit Lions.

Gary was activated from the physically unable to perform list on Aug. 7 and has been participating in individual drills, however Stokes still has not been cleared and could be headed for the PUP list to begin the regular season.

LaFleur said the decision on a roster designation for Stokes, a first-round pick in 2021, was “out of my wheelhouse.”

The Packers begin the regular season on Sept. 10 at Chicago.

Gary, 25, posted 32 tackles (seven for loss) along with 12 quarterback hits, six sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery in nine games before the injury last season. The Packers‘ 2019 first-round pick (No. 12 overall) out of Michigan has recorded 22.5 sacks and 135 tackles in 56 games (29 starts).
