Injuries force Packers to utilize their offensive line depth
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) – The Green Bay Packers’ offensive line looks quite a bit different from last year’s version. But it again is withstanding multiple injuries to provide capable protection for reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers.
2020 All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari hasn’t played all season as he recovers from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Elgton Jenkins switched positions to fill in for Bakhtiari before getting injured himself.
2020 All-Pro center Corey Linsley left for the Los Angeles Chargers. This new-look line featuring two rookie starters shows signs of progress.
The Packers likely will play without Jenkins again Sunday as they host the Pittsburgh Steelers.
