The Green Bay Packers worked out several offensive tackles Monday in a bid to find a replacement for a player who sustained an injury Friday night against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Offensive Tackle Luke Tenuta sustained a serious ankle injury. Head coach Matt Schneidman told reporters Sunday that Tenuta’s and Tyler Davis’ injuries were more severe than the others that occurred Friday night. LaFleur said Tenuta would be out for a while.
The Packers aren’t wasting a second looking for a replacement.
Green Bay Packers work out three offensive tackles
According to Aaron Wilson with KPRC, the Packers worked out three offensive tackles: Adrian Ealy, Trevor Reid, and BJ Wilson.

Ealy was signed to the Packers practice squad in December of 2021. He was released the next month. Reid is a UDFA who spent time with the Philadelphia Eagles this year. Wilson is a UDFA who signed with the Carolina Panthers earlier this year.
As of this publishing, none of these tackles have been signed.
One would assume the Packers will sign an offensive line shortly. While Tenuta was on the bubble to make the 53-man roster, there was a good chance he could make the practice squad. The Packers will be searching for someone who can provide depth for the team at tackle should something happen to the starters.
