Has any NFL team been hit harder by injuries as of late than the Green Bay Packers?
The answer might be no.
Green Bay lost to Minnesota, 34-31, but suffered an even bigger loss in the process. Standout Packers offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins is feared to have suffered a torn ACL.
This would be a crushing loss for the Packers.
The fear is that #Packers stellar OL Elgton Jenkins tore his ACL, source said. Would be a significant blow, but he’ll have an MRI to determine the full extent.

Thankfully for Green Bay, the Packers have shown a lot of fight this season.
Despite the loss to the Vikings on Sunday afternoon, the Packers are 8-3 on the regular season, still in prime position for a division championship and top NFC seed.
can’t recall a year where I’ve looked forward to a bye week more than I do for this season.
Crazily, Packers have had their injuries all year and have stayed afloat (actually, they’re thriving).
Excited to see this team if/when it gets fully healthy. https://t.co/5CXTtAM7um

The Packers will hope to get good news on the injury front moving forward.
