Green Bay Packers left tackle Elgton Jenkins is doubtful for the Week 3 visit to San Francisco on Sunday night due to an ankle injury.

Jenkins did not practice this week and head coach Matt LaFleur said Friday the Packers opted not to list him as officially out of the game because there is an “outside chance” he could still be active.

Jenkins, a valuable Pro Bowl guard, moved to left tackle to compensate for the loss of All-Pro David Bahktiari, who is on short-term injured reserve.

More shuffling of the line would be needed to compensate for Jenkins missing Week 3, LaFleur said.

Third-year pro Yosh Nijman has logged less than 15 career snaps and is listed as the No. 2 left tackle on the team’s depth chart.

Right tackle Dennis Kelly could be a candidate to move to the left side.
