Packers lose LG Elgton Jenkins to knee injury vs. Falcons

The Green Bay Packers will be without starting left guard Elgton Jenkins for the rest of the way on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. Jenkins, who injured his knee in the first half, has been ruled out by the Packers coming out of halftime.

Royce Newman replaced Jenkins at left guard.

Jenkins appeared to suffer his knee injury on a third-down run by A.J. Dillon, who slammed into the side of Jenkins’ leg while going to the ground. Jenkins finished the drive but wasn’t on the field for the Packers’ next possession.

The Packers went into Sunday without left tackle David Bakhtiari, who was questionable entering the game. Rasheed Walker and Yosh Nijman have rotated in and out at left tackle.

Matt LaFleur may provide more information on Jenkins’ injury following the contest.
