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

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.

hardrocker950 (3m) : As I figured - local is playing the queens and loins
Cheesey (12h) : Oh well. As good as they played in the 1st half, 100% sucked in 2nd half.
KRK (12h) : *their
KRK (12h) : Time for the offensive lineTo man up and enforce there will
Zero2Cool (13h) : Well, this is starting to suck.
Zero2Cool (13h) : Taylor is tough.
Zero2Cool (13h) : I worry Badgers gonna get cute with on-side kick.
Cheesey (13h) : SHOCK THE WORLD!
Cheesey (13h) : Badgers are playing with a lot of heart!!!
Cheesey (14h) : A score here would be HUGE!
Cheesey (14h) : Letting Ohio back in the game isn’t good.
Zero2Cool (15h) : Come on Badgers, shock the world!!
Zero2Cool (15h) : He's a good dude.
KRK (19h) : Totally Serious here, I admire Buckeye and the other optimist contributors. They have proper sports perspective.
Zero2Cool (23h) : I wish I was optimistic.
KRK (7-Dec) : Go Badgers....what an upset that would be....
Cheesey (7-Dec) : Actually, King has TWO hammies! 😂
gbguy20 (6-Dec) : lemme guess Kevin king has a hammy
Zero2Cool (6-Dec) : Packers list CBs Kevin King & Tony Brown as questionable.
KRK (6-Dec) : I am surprised Garrett is still employed. If things don't changenot, he could be gone tomorrow.
KRK (6-Dec) : bares
Zero2Cool (5-Dec) : Possibly.
gbguy20 (5-Dec) : we knew what you meant. your point was still clear
Zero2Cool (4-Dec) : Oops, Smith was CB, not RB. My mistake. Etiher way, it was about the KR/PR not the position
gbguy20 (4-Dec) : yep
Zero2Cool (4-Dec) : What do you mean? They cut a RB who was the KR/PR, so they signed someone who is KR/PR, who happens to be RB
Cheesey (4-Dec) : I don’t get it. Going after more RBs. We NEED guys that can get separation and catch passes.
Zero2Cool (4-Dec) : Tyler Ervin taking reps with the running backs at practice today. Ervin, 5-foot-10, 192lbs., age 26, once said he’s tried to model his game after Darren Sproles. Best 40 time was 4.41 at Combine.
Zero2Cool (4-Dec) : Put the Packers in a dome. They are a soft team. They need protection from the weather.
Zero2Cool (4-Dec) : Packers go on the road each game, -- I say GOOD!
Nonstopdrivel (3-Dec) : The biggest problem with being a lower seed is that, unless everything falls your way, you're going to be on the road for the entirety of the playoffs.
KRK (3-Dec) : He sucks, they can have him.
Zero2Cool (3-Dec) : Dolphins have claimed speedy WR Trevor Davis off of waivers from the Raiders,
TheKanataThrilla (3-Dec) : It might be easier to face Dallas on the road rather than the Vikes or 49ers at home
TheKanataThrilla (3-Dec) : I meant 5th seed.
TheKanataThrilla (3-Dec) : Would it be better to be the 4th seed in the playoffs rather than the 3rd?
Zero2Cool (3-Dec) : Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera has been fired.
Cheesey (3-Dec) : Seattle took care of the Vikings for us!
Zero2Cool (3-Dec) : We better not bring Davis back.
TheKanataThrilla (3-Dec) : I don't think it was a conditional 6th so yes we do
gbguy20 (3-Dec) : do we still get our draft pick or....?
TheKanataThrilla (3-Dec) : Trevor Davis cut by the Raiders
Mucky Tundra (3-Dec) : And they need Dallas to lose all 4 of their remaining games
Mucky Tundra (3-Dec) : For the Skins to win the East, they need to win out, philly to win vs Dallas and lose their other 3 games
Nonstopdrivel (2-Dec) : Packers release Tremon Smith.
Nonstopdrivel (2-Dec) : Yeah—in a random drawing.
Porforis (2-Dec) : At 33, I still could win a spot on an NFL roster.
