Packers luck out with T.J. Lang injury; Avoided major structural damage

tj langT.J. Lang avoided any major structural damage to his injured left ankle, and the Green Bay Packers’ starting right guard will not need surgery, according to a source. However, the Packers won’t know until next week whether he will be available for their post-bye game against the Chicago Bears on Nov. 9.

“Not sure about a timetable yet,” the source said.

The injury was diagnosed as a sprain. Lang was injured at the end of the first series in Sunday’s 44-23 loss at the New Orleans Saints. He appeared to land awkwardly while blocking an extra point. He played just five snaps on offense and the lone special teams snap.
