The National Football Post reports on Packers right tackle Mark Tauscher, stating that his injury that kept him out of Wednesday’s practice could be a lot more serious than first thought.
Right tackle Mark Tauscher was held out of practice on Wednesday and listed on the injury report with a shoulder issue. According to an NFL source, there is fear that Tauscher’s injury is serious and he could wind up being sidelined for a significant period of time.
Tauscher returned from a knee injury to re-join the Packers during last season and the veteran helped stabilize an offensive line that had been struggling to protect quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The 11-year veteran has started has been a book end along with Chad Clifton for most of the last decade in Green Bay.
If Tauscher is sidelined, the Packers will be forced to scramble. They’ve been hit by injuries up front again and Breno Giacomini, an offensive tackle who was on the practice squad, was recently signed to the 53-man roster of the Seattle Seahawks.
