Linsley agreed to a five-year, $62.5 million contract with the Chargers on Monday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. The 29-year-old will become the highest-paid center in the league and be the lynchpin of the offensive line for quarterback Justin Herbert. Linsley earned first-team All-Pro honors in 2020 and spent the first seven seasons of his NFL career protecting Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay.
Linsley (knee) was activated from injured reserve Saturday. The 29-year-old was designated to return from injured reserve earlier this week and is back on the active roster after missing the past three weeks with the MCL sprain. Linsley should reclaim his starting spot at center, pushing the versatile Elgton Jenkins back to left guard.
Linsley (knee) was designated to return from injured reserve Tuesday, Olivia Reiner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. The 29-year-old now has a 21-day window to practice and potentially return to the active roster. Elgton Jenkins should continue to start at center until Linsley is cleared to be activated.
Linsley (knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports. Linsley suffered a sprained MCL in last week's win over the Bears and will require 3-to-6 weeks of recovery. Following his injury, Elgton Jenkins took over at center, opening a spot at left guard for rookie Jon Runyan to step into. The Packers are expected to roll with that formation until Linsley can return.
Linsley will miss the next 3-to-6 weeks with the knee injury he suffered in Week 12 against the Bears, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Linsley needed assistance getting off the field Sunday night in the first half, though it's great news for the Packers that his season isn't over. He should be ready for the playoffs in a worst-case scenario.
