Linsley didn't participate in OTAs on Monday due to a back injury, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
This is a troubling development for a player who popped up on the injury report multiple times late last season with back injuries, though Linsley never actually missed a game because of one. However, it shouldn't be a huge problem unless his absence from practice continues into training camp.
Linsley has started every game for the Packers this season. He has proved reliable on the line, so it makes sense that the team wants to lock him up for the long term. The 26-year-old is now set to spend the prime of his career in Green Bay.
Linsley is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers due to a back injury, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Linsley was absent from the injury report Wednesday, but only practiced in limited fashion the following two days. He dealt with a back injury earlier in the season, so it is looks like he aggravated the issue at practice. Lucas Patrick would likely replace Linsley at center should he not be able to suit up Sunday.
