Packers WR Romeo Doubs named NFL Rookie of Week 3

Doubs had eight catches for 73 yards and a TD in win over Tampa Bay


GREEN BAY – Packers receiver Romeo Doubs has been voted the NFL Rookie of Week 3 after catching eight passes for 73 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 14-12 road win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Doubs caught his first NFL touchdown off a 5-yard pass from quarterback Aaron Rodgers, finishing a 10-play, 75-yard opening scoring drive for the Packers.

His eight receptions were the most by a Packers rookie since Gerry Ellis had eight against Tampa Bay on Nov. 30, 1980, and rank second in franchise history behind only Max McGee's nine catches against the Los Angeles Rams on Dec. 12, 1954.

Doubs is the first Packers rookie to win the award since Jamaal Williams (Week 14, 2017).
