There is likely to be horrible information coming quickly from the Inexperienced Bay Packers. Locked in a bare-knuckled brawl towards the NFC North rival Minnesota Vikings, they could have misplaced yet one more beginning left sort out for the season. Elgton Jenkins, beginning instead of five-time All-Professional sort out David Bakhtiari, went down within the fourth quarter in what seemed to be a non-contact harm. He was carted into the locker room and the Packers worry the worst-case situation, with Jenkins reportedly fearing a torn ACL — per Ian Rapoport for NFL Community.

He’ll bear extra exams to find out the extent of the harm, but it surely would not look promising.

Bakhtiari continues to be making an attempt to return from a torn ACL he suffered in 2020, which turned eyes to Jenkins thus far. The latter is a former second-round choose of the Packers in 2019 who earned his first Professional Bowl nod in 2020 after being named to the PFWA All-Rookie Group in his first 12 months as a professional. Being with out Bakhtiari is painful sufficient of a blow for the Packers, however the void was crammed by a well-playing Jenkins, who could not return this season.

That might transfer them to their third-string sort out Yosuah Nijman as the first to take reps on the place, with a attainable take a look at Dennis Kelly as properly. 

It is a creating story.
