A roundup of the latest Green Bay Packers news for Saturday, Sept. 12.

Welcome to the Packers news today.

Rick Wagner is the obvious choice to play at right tackle with Billy Turner likely out this weekend. But should Wagner be the Green Bay Packers’ starter this week?

How do you see it playing out? Should another player get the shot to start at right tackle? Should the Packers reshuffle things and perhaps ask Elgton Jenkins to fill in at tackle until Turner is back?

Head coach Matt LaFleur often spoke about finding the best starting five. I wonder if that includes Wagner. With Turner doubtful to play, he might have no choice.
