With a 14-0 lead and after a pair of turnovers from their defense, the Green Bay Packers have to make a change on their offensive line.

Center Corey Linsley, who has been an iron man on the line over the past few years, has headed to the locker room with an injury as the Packers’ offense returned to the field in the second quarter. The Packers announced that he is being evaluated for a concussion and his return is questionable.

Replacing Linsley on the line at the center position is Lucas Patrick, the third-year pro. Patrick is likely the primary backup at all three interior line spots with Elgton Jenkins manning the left guard position.

Also injured early in this game is tight end Robert Tonyan, who had a big 23-yard catch on the Packers’ second touchdown drive. Tonyan is also questionable to return with an injury to his hip.

UPDATE: Linsley has officially been ruled out for the remainder of the game.

Stay tuned for further injury updates.
