The Green Bay Packers have had a rough go early on in the first half of their week six game against the Chicago Bears. Not only have the Bears jumped out to an early lead, but the Packers have seen one of their biggest players, literally and figuratively, leave the field with an injury.

On the opening drive of the game, center Josh Myers went down with a knee injury. Myers, the team’s second-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, had started each of the Packers’ first four games this season before missing last week’s win in Cincinnati with a finger injury. He returned to practice fully this week, but went to the injury tent on the first series of the game.

Myers is officially listed as questionable to return.

In addition to Myers’ return for this game, Elgton Jenkins came back from injury to start the game at left tackle. Following Myers’ injury, the Packers have turned to Lucas Patrick at center. Patrick started last week’s game in Cincinnati in Myers’ place.

Stay tuned for more updates on Myers’ status.
