Injuries have decimated the Green Bay Packers this season and the offensive line hasn't been spared.

Pro Bowl offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins went down in the fourth quarter on a drive in which the Packers would take the lead, 24-23. 

It appeared to be a non-contact injury. He was taken to the locker room  on a cart. The Packers announced he was questionable to return, then ruled him out.

The NFL Network reported the Packers fear the injury is a torn ACL. Jenkins will undergo an MRI on Monday.

Jenkins missed three games earlier this season (Weeks 3-5) with an ankle injury. 

The Packers have been without All Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari all season as he recovers from a torn ACL late last season.
