The Packers are getting some offensive pieces back on the practice field.

Head coach Matt LaFleur told reporters on Sunday that the team is activating offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins, tight end Robert Tonyan and wide receiver Christian Watson from the physically unable to perform list. LaFleur said all three players will be limited to individual work and walkthroughs for the time being.

Jenkins tore his ACL while playing left tackle last season. He could be back there again this year as David Bakhtiari remains on the PUP list. If not left tackle, he could play right tackle or guard.

Tonyan is also returning from a torn ACL. Watson, who was picked in the second round this year, has been dealing with a knee injury.

  1. Thats good news. IN the game the other night the niners have a raft of pro bowl defensemen who were not suited yet the backups did a great job handling the packers and showed a lot of speed.
    The Packers are in deep do do this year. 2 runs and a pass isnt a game plan.

  2. You do realize GB only played 3 or 4 starters on the O line and that’s it right? According to PFF they all ranked pretty highly for their play. Nobody else on offense that played is gonna be starting against Minnesota game 1. They only played 1 presumed starter on defense and that was Quay Walker at ILB for a few snaps in the first half.

    I swear if your gonna be a troll at least know what you are talking about so you don’t sound/look foolish.

  3. I guess that Bak is done for his career. He definitely wont be starting the season if he hasnt cleared the PUP list. He will need at least 3 weeks of practice to get into game shape and get the new schemes ingrained in his body – especially since this will be almost 2 years of being on the sideline. Too bad – but sometimes those knees on those big guys just cant take the wear and tear and when they fail they are not the same = and it is much better now than it used to be.

  4. The trolls only know about hate. Instead of rooting FOR their teams they rag on the Packers. Sad. GBP will dominate the NFC North again this year. They’ll clinch by Christmas. We’ll see how they stack up against TB, LA, Dallas and Philly in the playoffs

  5. Definitely positive news. No point in rushing their returns. It’s a very long season.

    The good news is Watson has yet to drop a pass

    He didn’t play.

  7. I wouldn’t get too excited about Jenkins and Tonyan just yet.

    Being off the PUP means they’re going to give it a shot, but that’s not the same thing as saying they’ll actually get there–look no further than Bakhtiari’s much-delayed and ultimately abortive comeback last season for proof of that.

    Rehab for a torn ACL is usually a full year. Tonyan and Jenkins both tore their ACLs last November. It would be a pleasant surprise if I was wrong, but I wouldn’t expect either of them back before November 2022.

    Need them back asap plz. Season already a disaster here in wisconson. Ugh

    Liar. 🤥

  9. I ran into Luke Butkus at Culver’s. We talked over a large order of cheese curds.He said it will be a miracle keeping Rodgers upright this season. He was hesitant but pretty much confirmed that this is a rebuild season for the pack.

  10. I ran into Kevin O’Connell setting up his poutine stand at Minnesota State Fair. He said he hopes Cousins retires before Opening Day so the Vikings have a chance at avoiding the NFCN basement.
