The Green Bay Packers had a tough loss on the road in Atlanta on Sunday, and are now dealing with some of the fallout of a physical defeat.

Two-time Pro Bowl guard Elgton Jenkins went down with a reported knee injury on Sunday, and now his injury and future this season are more clear.

According to Packers beat writer Rob Demovsky, the injury is significant, but may not be season ending:

It's a tough break for Green Bay, as the Packers have already dealt with veteran tackle David Bakhtiari's availability issues this season.

Bakhtiari missed Sunday's game against the Falcons, and has been iffy availability-wise when games are played on turf over the past few seasons.

Jenkins will now play the rehab and waiting game for a while until he can make his return. He has been with the Packers since he was drafted in the second round back in 2019.

Green Bay hosts New Orleans for their home opener on Sunday, a 12:00 noon kickoff from Lambeau Field.

Ten Most Disappointing Minnesota Sports Seasons

The 2021 Minnesota Twins entered the season with high expectations, but unfortunately, they've made the list of most disappointing Minnesota teams of all time.

Disappointment is a common feeling for Minnesota sports fans as the years continue. Following the NBA Championship win for Milwaukee, SportsCenter was quick to point out that Minnesota has the current longest streak of seasons without a championship appearance in the four major sports (MLB/NBA/NFL/NHL). The Minnesota Lynx also chimed in on the stat after claiming four championships since 2011.

The ten teams that are on this list all follow a similar pattern. The year prior was either a great season with a playoff run or one that featured a strong core of players that appeared to have taken the next step. Offseason/preseason expectations were high with even Las Vegas oddsmakers believing in a deep run. Unfortunately, those preseason expectations fell short for the following teams. None of the teams listed below made the playoffs.
