Lucas Patrick could be back for Sunday's game against the Lions

The offensive lineman appears to have dodged major injury. 

From Pelissero:

Patrick started the Vikings game at left guard after the Packers decided to put last year's starter at the position, Elgton Jenkins, out at right tackle.

Patrick suffered a shoulder inuury in the second quarter of Sunday's game but looked solid in his seventh career start prior to his exit.

Saw bits of the game and noticed Jon Runyan in at right guard. Seemed to be holding his own. Is there any need to pull the rookie at this point?

Overall, I am worried about this O-line for this season. Wagner and Turner start the season hurt and both are total question marks. It is a long season and we really don't have a lot of starting grade depth if a tackle and guard go down.

D-line is worse. Can't stand that I root for a team that doesn't invest in quality trench play. If Kenny Clark is out for any period of time, teams will run right through us.

Runyan should be the RG and let Turner and Wagner fight for the RT assignment. They're getting Paid for that gig.
Patrick is at best the backup Center and fill-in guard. .

The sad truth is Cook was running right thru us with Kenny Clark in there. GB failed miserably to address ILB and DL. An ILB instead of Love in round one, or DL in round 1 would have looked way better right now..

That's good news on Patrick. I have a bad feeling that Lane Taylor blew out his knee, looked really bad. He's not going to be on the field any time soon. That looked like an ACL to me, but we'll see if he dodged a bullet or not. Still think they should go out and sign Veldheer.

The first drive didn't look great, but those first drives with scripted plays the offense has been working on all week result in a field goal or TD more often than not and that's across the league. Holding a team to a field goal on the first drive is a win, getting a 3 and out is dominant. However, the defense stepped up after that until Kenny Clark got hurt. Cook only had 50 yards rushing on about 4 yards a carry, that includes the entire second half without Clark.

Kirksey and surprisingly Krys Barnes both looked pretty good for the first game of the season with essentially no off-season and almost no live tackling. The D-Line did get pushed around after Kenny Clark got hurt and we definitely could use another solid guy for our D-Line... Kirksey missed contain on that first long scramble by Cousins, but outside of that he played solid. I know Packers love Blake Martinez, but Kirksey is an upgrade especially in pass coverage, but also against the run.

The offensive line couldn't have played any better given the circumstances. Very few pressures, no sacks and over 5 yards a carry. Runyan got to the second level on several runs and Wagner was much better than I expected in pass protection. Hopefully it's an MCL with Taylor, but it did look like it was an ACL... As long as we get Turner back we'll be fine. Veldheer is a great emergency option, but over a season Wagner is a better player so is Turner.

Kirksey, Krys Barnes and Martin are the ILBs. For the Inbred NFL player personnel departments to ignore Barnes out of UCLA and Lazard in 2018 from the draft is an indictment on preconceived notions and t-tests of what is credible in the evaluation of real football players. RAS that muther.

Would be nice to get Patrick back and Turner seems to be day-to-day. Wagner & Runyan played well as far as I saw. Not the ideal of having your starting five OL healthy and playing like a well oiled machine, but all-in-all I thought it was a good performance by the OL under the circumstances.

Runyan is superior to Patrick. Let the others fight it out for the RT.
