Article Summary:

Terrible news has arrived for the Green Bay Packers. Locked in a bare-knuckled brawl against the NFC North rival Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, a fight they wound up losing to a game-winning field goal, the Packers also lost yet another starting left tackle for the season. Being without Bakhtiari is painful enough of a blow for the Packers, but the void was filled by a well-playing Jenkins, whom they won’t see again until 2022.

Barring an addition via free agency, that moves the Packers to third-string tackle Yosuah Nijman as the primary player to take reps at the position, with a possible look at Dennis Kelly as well. It’s a huge blow to the Packers offense, and one that combines with what’s described as a toe injury on Aaron Rodgers that certainly sounds more than a few alarms in Green Bay.Because if Rodgers is hobbled while the Packers struggle to protect his blindside, things could get ugly.
