Elgton Jenkins is doubtful for the Packers in Week 3.
The Green Bay Packers are likely to be without Pro Bowl offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins on Sunday night against the San Francisco 49ers.
Jenkins, who has started at left tackle in each of the Packers’ two games so far this season, has been listed as doubtful on the team’s official injury report for Week 3. Jenkins is dealing with an ankle injury he suffered in Monday night’s victory over the Detroit Lions.
This is concerning for a Packers offensive line already playing without All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari and starting two rookies.
If Jenkins is unable to go, this offensive line is going to be tested against the 49ers’ defensive line.
Packers vs. 49ers injury report
Outside of Jenkins, the only other player for Green Bay to be given an injury designation is tight end Dominique Dafney, who is listed as questionable to play on Sunday night. Dafney didn’t practice on Friday due to a hip injury.
It means every other player on the injury report, including tight end Josiah Deguara, safety Darnell Savage, and center Josh Myers, are all good to go.
The 49ers have some injury concerns ahead of the game.
They have already ruled out running back JaMycal Hasty and defensive tackle Kevin Givens. Running back Elijah Mitchell is doubtful with a shoulder injury. San Francisco could be without its top three running backs — Raheem Mostert and Hasty are already out, while Mitchell is doubtful.
Two key players along the defensive line, Arik Armstead and Javon Kinlaw, are both questionable. Cornerback Emmanuel Moseley is also questionable.
With injuries at running back, the 49ers will likely start with rookie Trey Sermon. He, too, was on the injury report due to a concussion, but was listed as a full participant at Friday’s practice and doesn’t carry an injury designation, indicating he has cleared the concussion protocol.
