Report: Packers G Lang has 'minor' knee sprain, could play in Week 6
Green Bay Packers guard T.J. Lang got some good news after suffering a knee injury against the St. Louis Rams in Week 5. An MRI found no significant damage, so his injury is just a "minor" sprain, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.

As Rapoport mentions in his Tweet, Lang has an "outside chance" to play this Sunday, when the Packers host the San Diego Chargers. They need him in the lineup to keep the interior offensive line intact, which is key to the protection of franchise quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
The Packers have dealt with several injuries along the offensive line since the summer, so shuffling personnel is nothing new for this team. When Lang went down against the Rams, Green Bay used a combination of Josh Walker and Don Barclay at right guard.
The undefeated Packers must find a winning solution, regardless of Lang's availability on Sunday.
