Jordan Love just can't catch a break with the Green Bay Packers' offensive injuries.

The Packers missed Christian Watson for the opening three games of the season and Aaron Jones for two games. Both returned in Week 4 but only played a limited role. Romeo Doubs was limited in Weeks 1 and 2 as he returned from a hamstring injury.

Now, just as Love's receiving corps is getting healthier, the injury list along the offensive line is growing by the week.

Packers offensive injuries not helping Jordan Love

Star All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari may not play again this season after the Packers placed him on injured reserve. Pro Bowl guard Elgton Jenkins suffered a sprained MCL in Week 2. He could miss more time.

Right tackle Zach Tom played on Thursday Night Football but was clearly limited by a knee injury that landed him on the injury report.

And the concerns just keep increasing. Now, a fourth starting offensive lineman is on the Packers' injury list.

According to ESPN's Rob Demovsky, right guard Jon Runyan Jr. was in a walking boot on Friday. He suffered an ankle injury against the Lions.

Hopefully, Runyan can play in Week 5. He gets additional time to recover, as the Packers don't play again until October 9.

The Packers have significant concerns at the interior positions along the offensive line. Royce Newman has struggled at left guard while covering for Elgton Jenkins. Now Runyan is injured. If he isn't back in Week 5, the Packers' top two guards would be Newman and Sean Rhyan.

Love was under consistent pressure against the Lions. According to The Athletic's Matt Schneidman, the Lions pressured Love on 43.6 percent of the plays they didn't blitz.

Newman and center Josh Myers gave up a sack on a double team. That's unacceptable.

Green Bay's offensive line put in three excellent performances to start the season, but they were dominated all night against the Lions. Bakhtiari is on injured reserve, and the Packers' injury concerns continue to build.
