The Green Bay Packers will look to turn the page quickly on a devastating loss to their divisional rival Minnesota Vikings in Week 11.

Turning the page will be difficult after Green Bay received a terrible injury update on Pro Bowl offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins.

Elgton Jenkins Injury Update

NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported that Jenkins may have torn his ACL, which would end his 2021 season. Jenkins will undergo an MRI to determine the exact nature of his knee injury.

Jenkins went down in the fourth quarter of Sunday's crushing 34-31 loss in Minnesota. The one-time Pro Bowler missed time from Weeks 3-5, but played in 100% of the offensive snaps in his 7 starts this season.

Not only was Jenkins an important piece to the O-Line, but he was filling in for veteran Pro Bowler David Bakhtiari, who hasn't seen the field in 2021. Jenkins owns a 82.0 grade from Pro Football Focus and has allowed just 2 sacks across 447 snaps prior to Week 11.

Green Bay will look to recover from this devastating loss before a tough Week 12 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.
