The Green Bay Packers’ offensive line should be at full strength on Sunday. Banged-up right guard T.J. Lang practiced on Wednesday and says he’s playing this week, barring some sort of setback.
“It felt good,” Lang said of his injured knee. “Physically, I think it’s definitely sore and there probably aren’t many guys out there who aren’t sore at this point in the year. Everybody gets hurt at some point throughout the year and I felt like it’s something I can play through. I’ve played through worse injuries and as long as I don’t have any setbacks going through this week, I’m going to feel good about Sunday.”
Lang injured the knee during the first half of the Packers’ game against St. Louis. He didn’t return and was replaced in the lineup by Josh Walker.
After the game, Lang said he’d be fine, so we’re not surprised he’s planning on playing Sunday.
Unlike some guys, T.J. consistently plays through injuries. Last season, he sprained his ankle at the end of October and trotted right out there with the starters the first week of November.
Lang was listed on the injury report until the end of December, but never missed a game.
We doubt he’ll miss one now.
