Linsley left Sunday’s win over the Lions in the fourth quarter, but will reportedly be good to go for Week 3. The Green Bay Packers  left their Week 2 game against the Detroit Lions  considerably more banged up than they entered it, but they’re getting some good news on at least one of those injuries. According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero , center Corey Linsley  is dealing with an injury to the thumb on his snapping hand, but should be good to go for the Packers ’ Week 3 game against the New Orleans Saints .
Linsley  left the win over the Lions in the fourth quarter, leaving the Packers to shuffle their line late in the game for the second consecutive week. In Linsley’s absence, Lucas Patrick  shifted from right guard to center and rookie Jon Runyan stepped in at right guard.
Though there’s certainly little he could have done to avoid a sprained thumb, that Linsley is hurt at all is noteworthy. He’s been an iron man on the interior of the Packers line for most of his career. He didn’t miss a single snap for the Packers in 2017 or 2018, and only came off the field in 2019 for a concussion and some back issues.
In both situations, Patrick  filled in at center and Linsley was back in action for the next game. Should Linsley miss this week’s game, the Packers have a plethora of options to replace him. Patrick is the obvious choice, but Elgton Jenkins  played extensively at center in college and would also be an option. 2020 sixth-round pick Jake Hanson , who started 49 games at center for Oregon, is currently on the practice squad.
It’s also worth noting that the Packers brought former Seahawks center Justin Britt in for a workout  prior to Week 1. He’d presumably only be an option if the Packers have a long-term issue with Linsley, but Britt ’s connection to Green Bay shouldn’t be forgotten.

The OL has taken a beating so far this year. Hopefully Linsley won't miss a game. I doubt he can tape his thumb and he can't put too much painkiller on it or he won't be able to feel to snap the ball.

beast (15h) : As long as they have excuses, MM will stay at least 3 years... they refused to let the prior guy go until his contract was up. Cowboys need more defensive talent and they got no cap space.
Zero2Cool (16h) : Someone might be traded, lol. Report: Bengals tell Carlos Dunlap to stay home Wednesday
Cheesey (28-Oct) : The Cowboys stunk WITH Dak as QB. But maybe J.Jones will give MM another year before he cans him.

wpr (27-Oct) : Cheesey, not really. If he was good he wouldn't have been released. He has never had 500 yards in a season. In his best year he caught 45 passes out of 64 targets..
Cheesey (27-Oct) : I don’t know anything about him. Is he any good?

Zero2Cool (26-Oct) : @Gil_Brandt Davante Adams has two games this season of 150+ receiving yards and 2+ receiving touchdowns. The rest of the NFL's receivers has two such games in 2020 (Justin Jefferson and Tyler Lockett)
Cheesey (26-Oct) : Mertz, the Wisconsin Badgers QB.

Mucky Tundra (25-Oct) : Holy crap what a crazy ending to a World Series game!
Zero2Cool (25-Oct) : We'll see about Jones. Packers are leaning on holding him, but it's game time decision.
