Packers center Corey Linsley is expected to miss 3-6 weeks, Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports.

An MRI confirmed Linsley has a sprained MCL in his left knee. That should allow Linsley to return ahead of the postseason.

That is better news than it initially appeared when Linsley was carted off the sideline late in the first quarter. He was injured on a 10-yard scramble by Aaron Rodgers.

He played only 21 snaps.

The week before Linsley played only 10 snaps before injuring his back.

Elgton Jenkins replaced Linsley each of the past two weeks, moving from left guard, with Jon Runyan Jr. entering the game at left guard.

Right guard Lucas Patrick departed Sunday’s game with a toe injury. The Packers moved right tackle Billy Turner inside with Rick Wagner taking over at tackle.

  1. Phew. In a season with no dominant NFC team, having your horses back for the playoffs could be huge.

  2. Corey will of course be missed, but when you have the depth the Packers have on their roster you don’t miss a bit.👌

    Elgton Jenkins is so versatile that he can play all five positions on the line. Elgo is the starting LG, but has played and excelled at LT, RG, and C also this season. Incredible 2nd round pick by Brian Gutekunst in 2019.

    Jon Runyan was a 6th round pick by Gute in 2020 and is a absolute beast. Runyan has filled in at LG and RG this season. Runyan plays like a seasoned vet.
