Elgton Jenkins will start at LG over Lane Taylor in week 3
Quote:

The decision may be due to a combination of injury and performance reasons.

When the Green Bay Packers take the field on Sunday against the Denver Broncos, they will have a new starter at left guard. Over the past three years, Lane Taylor has started all but four games at that position, locking it down since the team surprisingly released Josh Sitton after the preseason in 2016. Taylor has missed just three starts overall, while kicking out to left tackle for one game in 2017.

However, rookie second-round draft pick Elgton Jenkins will get the call this Sunday. Head coach Matt LaFleur confirmed that Jenkins will be in the starting lineup during his Friday press conference.

There are two explanations for this change. The first is that Taylor is dealing with a biceps injury that flared up during practice this week. He did not appear on Wednesday’s injury report, but was listed as limited on Thursday with that ailment.

Of course, the other explanation is that Jenkins has simply earned the job over Taylor outright based on performance. LaFleur confirmed that the two were locked in competition over the entire preseason, and he only named Taylor the week one starter just before the preseason finale. However, in week two the Packers began working Jenkins into the lineup in week two, giving him 18 snaps on a handful of series. It seems that the team saw enough from him to give him the green light to step in; indeed, LaFleur said earlier this week that he “was really fired up with” Jenkins’ performance against the Vikings.

As for Jenkins, the soft-spoken lineman addressed the news with the media on Friday:

It was only a matter of time before Jenkins entered the starting lineup. The Packers have expressed great excitement about the former Mississippi State lineman ever since selecting him with the 44th overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft, and he performed well throughout the preseason.

Taylor’s status, however, now is in question. He may revert to a key backup role, but it is also possible that the Packers could look to move him before the NFL’s trade deadline on October 30. His contract runs through 2020, so a trade would allow the Packers to free up a bit of cap space this year and next.
Good....let's see what the kid can do.

Well, I'm hoping that Jenkins can provide better pass protection. Hopefully playing the game from start to finish will let Jenkins find his sea legs and do well enough to grab the spot for good.

Glad to see him in the lineup. Now I hope we don’t trade Lane Taylor away because we know all too well how injuries go.

Placed Taylor on IR, signed Adam Pankey off Titan PS.
Pankey back in Green Bay.

I thought the kid looked pretty good. Notwithstanding the foregoing, there was not a helluvalot of movement created by our Offensive line.

The good news is that Rodgers never got sacked.
He was dropped for 7 in the first two games.

He started off kinda rough. He got his ass blown up on the first play (or one of the first plays) and then got a false start. Other than that, I don't remember hearing his name.

Rodgers said this is about his uniform after this game was the cleanliest its ever been after playing a full game.

Mark it down... Jenkins will be a ALL PRO lineman for us if he stays healthy... 3 games in and playing at a fairly high level... against some quality fronts.

TheKanataThrilla (9h) : Minshew sure does not look like a 6th round rookie
Zero2Cool (9h) : Cardinals are reportedly fielding trade calls from teams interested in star cornerback Patrick Peterson
TheKanataThrilla (10h) : Savage being out is really going to hurt

gbguy20 (14h) : Darnell savage and tonyan also out. tony brow
packerfanoutwest (13-Oct) : sux, but he's not needed against the Lions
Zero2Cool (12-Oct) : Zoroastrianism
Zero2Cool (12-Oct) : Davante Adams will not play Monday night, Matt LaFleur said.
Zero2Cool (11-Oct) : LaFleur liked Tra Carson's reliability Sunday, not just running ball but pass pro. Reason he was promoted over Dexter Williams.
gbguy20 (11-Oct) : he left because he missed smokey too much
Zero2Cool (10-Oct) : Packers list Aaron Rodgers as limited by knee injury
buckeyepackfan (10-Oct) : Williams and Lindsley practice!
buckeyepackfan (10-Oct) : Bad...Davante still out. Good.

gbguy20 (10-Oct) : weird the stat i saw said all other rookie coaches are 4-19-1
Zero2Cool (10-Oct) : Packers are 4-1 (.800), while the seven other first-year coaches are 6-26-1 (.197).
Zero2Cool (10-Oct) : Nice!
Cheesey (10-Oct) : Yup! That’s what I got!

Cheesey (10-Oct) : Went with my wife to St. Vinnies thrift store. Got an authentic Clay Matthews Jersey, perfect shape, $5.25!
gbguy20 (10-Oct) : think of it this way. give up a 50k job for the potential to earn 500k if they manage to last just a year on a roster. they come out ahead.
gbguy20 (10-Oct) : lots of things don't give up on their dream until forced to. the reward outweighs tge risk to a certain point in their ife
Nonstopdrivel (10-Oct) : I think for me it would depend on what kind of civilian job I'd managed to secure in the interim. No use screwing up a good thing for a pie-in-the-sky shot at a dream.
Nonstopdrivel (10-Oct) : If a team that had previously cut you brought you in for a workout, would you be open to signing with the practice squad?
KRK (9-Oct) : I would like to see either/or Pennel or Williams. Lancaster and Lowry have been disappointing IMO
Zero2Cool (9-Oct) : PFF has Chandon Sullivan and Will Redmond with highest defensive grades
Zero2Cool (9-Oct) : Something like that.
buckeyepackfan (9-Oct) : CM3 out till week 10 with broken jaw.
Zero2Cool (8-Oct) : Packers worked out Packers: Rico Gathers, Mike Pennel, Sly Williams
Zero2Cool (8-Oct) : A team, dunno. A room, very easily. They interviewed him. lol
beast (8-Oct) : But how well did the Packers know LaFleur's command of a team and room before hiring him? (We'll never know)
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : hhaha great stat
Mucky Tundra (8-Oct) : Christian McCaffrey has 866 yards from scrimmage. The New York Jets have 718
Zero2Cool (8-Oct) : @RobDemovsky Most think he was hired for his offensive philosophies and schemes, but perhaps Matt LaFleur’s command of a team and room went underrated.
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : seahawks +2 vs browns. Slam it while you can!
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : just a thought. he fumbled at the one yard line this weekend and now they traded for another wr. figure maybe they're switching him out.
Zero2Cool (8-Oct) : Really? Raiders gonna cut Davis??
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : turns out this guy is just a tool
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : apparently, baker mayfield refused to shake hands with the 49ers during the coin toss. they made him pay for it all night.
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : maybe the raiders are cutting tdavis after his fumble
KRK (8-Oct) : 49ers are frigging terrific. Both lines are awesome
Nonstopdrivel (8-Oct) : I hope it was one damn sexy pic.
Zero2Cool (8-Oct) : Bills ship WR Zay Jones to Raiders for pic
