The deadline for making roster cuts down to 53 players is expected to be on Tuesday (August 30th). The preseason is over, and there is only two weeks left until the 2022 NFL season officially kicks off. In recent news Head Coach Matt Lafleur gave injury updates on two key offensive starters before Week 1.
Both of the players have been released off of the PUP list. Offensive tackles Elgton Jenkins and David Bakhtiari both suffered torn ACL injuries that kept them out of playing in the past for the Green Bay.
Matt Lafleur Injury Update: David Bakhtiari
According to Rob Demovsky on Twitter:
Matt LaFleur said he legit has “no idea” if David Bakhtiari and/or Elgton Jenkins will be ready for Week 1. “It’s hard to project without seeing go through practice (and see) how they respond to team reps.”
Packers coach Matt LaFleur said TE Robert Tonyan will move into the team drills phase, but Elgton Jenkins will not. In fact, it doesn’t sound like Jenkins will be out there, but LaFleur did not elaborate.
