Packers G T.J. Lang and LB Jake Ryan were both carted to the locker room with ankle injuries during the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Titans.
Both players were rolled up on from behind, so it’s possible that these could be serious injuries.
Based on the video, David Chao believes both Ryan and Lang may have high-ankle sprains.
Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel previously reported that the Packers told Lang a few months ago that they planned to focus on extensions for their younger players before getting back to him about a new deal.
According to McGinn, Lang indicated that there have been no negotiations with the Packers regarding an extension, but he said he “absolutely” wants to remain in Green Bay long-term.
An NFL executive pegged Lang’s value as between $8 million – $10 million per year on the open market: “When they get to market, man, it is the wild, wild west. Most of these guys, if they’re top three or top five in the free-agent class, they are going to get paid, and a lot more than they should.”
Lang, 29, is a former fourth-round pick of the Packers back in 2009. He’s currently in the final year of his five-year, $22.06 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $4.6 million for the 2016 season.
In 2016, Lang has appeared in eight games for the Packers and is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 9 guard out of 81 qualifying players.
