Nijman (elbow) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.
Nijman signed with the Packers in late November after Bryan Bulaga went down with a knee injury. However, this elbow injury will keep Nijman out for the year. The Packers signed John Leglue as a reserve.
Nijman will not play in Monday's game against the Vikings due to an elbow injury, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Nijman just joined the Packers' active roster, but he will not be available for their Week 16 matchup. As a result, the team will have slightly less depth available on the offensive line.
