In the Sunday Night Football matchup between the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers, tackle Jason Peters left the game with an injury. The injury looked like a possible ankle sprain and Peters ultimately went to the locker room.

Following Peters’ injury, rookie tackle Teven Jenkins made his NFL debut. The Oklahoma State product was called for a false start on his first drive and looked rusty. However, that was expected after the rookie had back surgery in August, forcing him to miss most of the season thus far.

Jenkins will likely play the remainder of the game against the Packers. The Bears confirmed that Jason Peters is questionable to return. We will update this article as more information is available.
