The Packers offered some encouraging news on Jenkins' recovery.Most of it has surrounded All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari. However, one of Green Bay's other offensive lineman, Elgton Jenkins, is one of the better offensive lineman in the game. He was a Pro Bowl guard in just his second season in 2020. The former Mississippi State star tore his ACL last November against the Minnesota Vikings. Now, Jenkins is "ahead of schedule" in his recovery from that torn ACL, reports Yahoo's Brandon Carwile.
