T.J. Lang Broke His Foot, Hopes to Play This Week

Green Bay Packers right guard T.J. Lang did not just break his foot. He confirmed on Wednesday that it’s the reason he’s been sidelined for the past three games.

Lang broke his foot against the Tennessee Titans and hasn’t played since.

However, he did return to limited practice Wednesday and says he’s hopes to play against Seattle on Sunday.

Lang was joined by center J.C. Tretter as a limited participant in practice. Tretter hasn’t played in five weeks because of a knee injury.

Having both guys — arguably the Packers’ two best linemen — back in the lineup would a boon for the team, providing they’re healthy. We wouldn’t say Jason Spriggs and Corey Linsley have performed poorly while Lang and Tretter have been out, but the line is clearly better when Lang and Tretter are in there. That’s most notable in the running game.

This will of practice will tell, although we wouldn’t bet on either guy being out there just yet.

    So since Nov. 13th were told Lang had an ankle injury and was in rehab, per MM.

    Then on Dec. 7th Lang said he broke his foot.

    Got it.
