GREEN BAY – The Packers will list offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins (ankle) as doubtful for Sunday night's game against the San Francisco 49ers, according to Head Coach Matt LaFleur.

Jenkins played all 65 offensive snaps at left tackle in Monday night's 35-17 win over the Detroit Lions but didn't practice this week after injuring his ankle at some point during the game.

"There's definitely an outside chance but we'll list him as doubtful," said LaFleur after practice on Friday. "If he can come around in the next 48 hours or whatever before we kick off, then we'd let him go."

Veteran Dennis Kelly and Yosh Nijman are candidates to step in at left tackle if Jenkins can't go. Starting right tackle Billy Turner also played left tackle last year during the playoffs.
