The Green Bay Packers have another injury concern with the offensive line following their Week 3 win over the New Orleans Saints. The Packers missed two starting offensive linemen against the Saints Sunday, Elgton Jenkins and David Bakhtiari.
It’s unclear how long Jenkins will be out for. Bakhtiari is expected to be “fluid” throughout the season. The Packers need some continuity on the offensive line to keep the offense competitive in Jordan Love’s first season as a full-time starter.
The Packers will have another name on the offensive line to watch on the injury report (and a few on the defense) this week. (And it’s a short turnaround for the Packers, who will play the Detroit Lions on Thursday Night Football in Week 4.)
The Green Bay Packers have a new concerning injury with Zach Tom
According to a statement by the Packers, Zach Tom sustained a knee injury against the Saints.

It was immediately unclear how serious Tom’s injury was. However, the Packers don’t want to see any more offensive linemen dealing with a knee injury. Having Tom, Bakhtiari, and Jenkins missing a game would be a disaster for the team in Week 4.
We’ll see if he’s able to practice this week. The 2-1 Packers will have a big test in a few days when they have a chance to take a lead in the NFC North with a win over the Lions.
