by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Packers' Corey Linsley: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Packers' Corey Linsley: Sustains MCL injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linsley suffered an MCL sprain in Sunday's win over the Bears, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Coach Matt LaFleur said Monday that he doesn't believe this is a season-ending injury, but he'll await an MRI to provide a definitive timeline. While that's encouraging news for the Packers' starting center, Linsley's still expected to miss some time, meaning Elgton Jenkins will take over at center while Jon Runyan slot in at left guard.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linsley (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against Chicago.

LaFleur didn't provide a timetable for Linsley's return. When Linsley exited Sunday's loss to the Colts, Elgton Jenkins finished the game at center while Jon Runyan slotted in at left guard. That formation figures to remain in place until Linsley is healthy.

Packers' Corey Linsley: Active for Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linsley (groin) will suit up in Sunday's game against Houston.

Linsley managed through the groin injury throughout practice this week, so the fact that he's healthy enough to play is a positive sign. Look for the Ohio State product to handle his usual starting role at center for Week 7.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linsley (groin) is questionable for Monday's game versus the Falcons, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

Packers' Corey Linsley: Suffers thumb sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linsley sustained a sprained thumb on his snapping (right) hand during Sunday's win over the LIons, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

The 29-year-old still ended up playing 65 of 73 offensive snaps during the contest and seems likely to attempt to play through the injury. However, depending on the severity of the sprain, it could impact his ability to deliver clean snaps. Linsley's status going forward should receive more clarity once Green Bay returns to practice later in the week.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linsley (back) is expected to be ready for the Packers' divisional-round game, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Pelissero explained that Linsley felt his back lock up in the contest, and this happens occasionally. With the Packers clinching a first-round bye, Linsley should have plenty of time to get healthy as the team awaits its next opponent.
