A roundup of the latest Green Bay Packers news for Tuesday, Sept. 8.

Welcome to the Packers news today.

Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur isn’t going to reveal who will be starting on the right side of the offensive line in the regular season opener versus the Minnesota Vikings.

It’s an understandable move as there is no benefit for him to give away that kind of information. Why give the Vikings a better idea of who they’ll be facing?

That said, it does seem quite clear who will be the starters. Billy Turner’s injury means that, if he’s out, both the right guard and right tackle spots will be open. Lane Taylor and Rick Wagner would be the obvious choice for both of those starting jobs. Of course, if Turner is healthy then things change. We’ll get a better idea when the Packers’ first injury report of the season is released tomorrow.
