Wilkerson (ankle) underwent successful surgery Tuesday, according to his personal Instagram.
Wilkerson was placed on injured reserve Saturday after he broke his ankle in Week 3 against the Redskins. He'll now begin the rehab process in hopes of being full recovered for the beginning of next season.
Wilkerson underwent a surgical procedure on the ankle he broke in last week's loss to the Redskins, so it was only a matter of time before he was placed on IR. It is unfortunate for the veteran lineman, because he signed a one-year, $5 million contract in the offseason with the goals of returning to the Pro Bowl form he displayed earlier in his career and securing one last big contract. He will spend the remainder of the season recovering and looking ahead to next year. Montravius Adams will presumably see his role on the line increased as a result.
Wilkerson (ankle) will miss the rest of the season, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.
Signed to a one-year, $5 million contract this offseason, Wilkerson managed just five tackles and no sacks in three games with the Packers. He reportedly suffered a broken ankle in Sunday's loss to Washington that ultimately required surgery, with the possibility of additional damage around his foot/leg. Montravius Adams and Dean Lowry will take on larger roles along the defensive line for Green Bay.
Wilkerson will not return to Sunday's game against the Redskins due to an ankle injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Wilkerson was taken to the hospital after suffering the injury, Rapoport also reported. The 2015 All-Pro seems to have suffered a significant injury, though details remain undisclosed. Expect an update on Wilkerson's health shortly following Sunday's game.
Wilkerson (groin) participated in practice Sunday, Michael Cohen of The Athletic Wisconsin reports.
Held out of practice and Thursday's preseason game against the Titans due to a sore groin, Wilkerson joined fellow defensive lineman Mike Daniels in drills Sunday. The duo, along with Kenny Clark, will compose a lethal front line once the regular season kicks off in September.
