Tom Pelissero reports that Packers’ C Corey Linsley is expected to miss three to six weeks with an MCL sprain that he suffered Sunday night against the Bears, but should return in time for the playoffs.
Linsley could be a candidate to be placed on injured reserve in the coming days.
Linsley, 29, is a former fifth-round pick of the Packers back in 2014. He was finishing out the final year of his four-year, $2,405,000 contract that included a $1,797,000 base salary when he signed a three-year, $25.5 million extension with the Packers in 2017.
He is currently set to become a free agent in 2021.
In 2020, Linsley has appeared in 11 games for the Packers, starting all of them at center.
We have him included in our Top 50 – 2021 Free Agents list.
