The Packers placed starting left guard Lane Taylor on injured reserve Saturday. They signed offensive lineman Adam Pankey from the Titans’ practice squad in a corresponding move.

Taylor showed up on the injury report Thursday as a limited participant with a biceps injury. He did not practice Friday.

Rookie Elgton Jenkins will start at left guard Sunday. Jenkins, the 44th overall selection in this spring’s draft, played 18 snaps last week in a rotation with Taylor.

Taylor started all but three games the past three seasons, with 46 of the 47 at left guard.

Pankey originally signed as an undrafted free agent out of West Virginia in 2017. As a rookie, he was on Green Bay’s active roster for 16 weeks and appeared in one game.

Last season, Pankey spent 12 games on the Packers’ practice squad before being signed to the active roster on Dec. 8. He played one game.

The Packers released him following training camp this year, and he signed with the Titans’ practice squad on Sept. 2.

  1. Elgton Jenkins is the man now. Make us proud rook!

    The Packers have had to put some important players on IR and they won’t flinch. Good depth is so important to the success of any team.

    Some teams just don’t have a strong and deep roster. Fans of those teams are getting triggered reading this.

    “Good depth” as in any warm body can step in and hold on to someone and not get a flag for it.

  3. Good depth? He’s a rookie. And didn’t the same clown proclaim another NFC team has a lineman that’s a bust after two games in the nfl? I don’t even know why I address these 12 year olds on PFT threads.

    We all are clowns with childish takes. The sooner you figure this out the better your experience will be here.

    Now excuse me while I try to forget I’m alive with this Jack Daniels.
