GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - The Green Bay Packers lost yet another offensive lineman, with T.J. Lang questionable to return after injuring his ankle in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Lang joined wide receiver Jordy Nelson in the locker room. Nelson injured his hamstring on the second drive of the game. It was not clear if it was the same hamstring that forced Nelson to miss Green Bay's Oct. 28 game against Jacksonville.

Lang started the first nine games at left guard before moving over to right tackle after Bryan Bulaga suffered a season-ending hip injury. Undrafted rookie Don Barclay replaced Lang.

The injuries came just as the Packers' offense was getting back to full strength. No. 1 receiver Greg Jennings was active Sunday for the first time since Sept. 30.
