Rodgers fine, offensive line, not
Lang, Sitton miss practice Wednesday
GREEN BAY — A bye week gave Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers some much-needed time to rest a sore hamstring.
The injury news isn’t as promising for two beefy guys who protect Rodgers in the pocket.
Starting guards Josh Sitton and T.J. Lang each sat out practice Wednesday with injuries suffered the last time the Packers played, a 44-23 loss at New Orleans on Oct. 26.
Sitton and Lang are the Packers’ best offensive linemen.
They are the longest-tenured players on what coach Mike McCarthy considers of the best front fives in his nine seasons in Green Bay.
Now there are questions about the line going into Sunday night’s NFC North showdown against the Chicago Bears.
Rodgers, though, was a full participant at practice. He leads the league with a 113.6 passer rating.
