T.J. Lang tweaks ankle in 1st quarter, returns

Green Bay Packers guard T.J. Lang (70) gets into position on the line of scrimmage during the first half  against the Minnesota Vikings.

Right guard T.J. Lang aggravated his ankle injury in the first quarter Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.

Lang has practiced sparingly but has played every game since injuring his ankle four weeks ago at New Orleans. On the Packers' second series Sunday, he re-injured his ankle on the first play, a 12-yard rush by Eddie Lacy, and left for the rest of the series. Lane Taylor replaced him.

Lang returned on the next series and played the rest of the game.

"I don't remember what really happened," Lang said. "It was Eddie's 10-, 12-yard run in the first quarter, it felt like somebody just kind of clipped me on the side, kind of re-rolled it again." ​
