Report: Packers Pro Bowl OL Elgton Jenkins suffers torn ACL vs. Vikings

The Green Bay Packers lost their third game of the 2021 season on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, but they also lost a whole lot more on their offensive line.

Jenkins has seldom been off the field over the course of his two-plus seasons in the NFL, suiting up for all 32 regular season games across 2019 and 2020. The 25-year-old was on the field for 964 offensive snaps (89%) during his rookie year -- plus 68 more on special teams (16%).

Jenkins played 1,037 offensive snaps (100%) and 81 more on special teams (19%) in his Pro Bowl 2020 campaign.

The former second round pick missed Weeks 3, 4 and 5 this season with an ankle injury, but in his seven contests leading up to Week 11, had been on the field for 100% of the offensive snaps. Jenkins is far from the only injured Packers player on offense, as fellow Pro Bowl offensive lineman David Bakhtiari has been out all year with a knee injury.

Starting running back Aaron Jones missed his first game of the season in Week 11 with a knee injury of his own, while star quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been nursing a toe injury.
