The Packers' defensive line, the deepest position group for the club last season, has been in upheaval at the peak of the offseason. The unit has been down five linemen in organized team activities.
End Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila (knee) and tackle Justin Harrell (back) are on the mend after undergoing surgeries this spring and won't be ready to return until training camp. Gbaja-Biamila had an arthroscopic procedure done May 29.
Cullen Jenkins, the incumbent starting right end, has been moved inside more to help fill a huge void initially brought on by the departure of Williams. With Ryan Pickett gone this week to attend to some family things, Alfred Malone lined up alongside Jenkins as the No. 1 tackles.
Jenkins' versatility has eased the dearth of available players in the interior, but the coaches don't want him to be a long-term solution at tackle.
"Cullen is one of those players with the ability to play inside or outside based on situations. It's definitely been a strength of his," coach Mike McCarthy said. "But, it's not a matter of he's going to go in there (at tackle) and stay in there. He'll play inside and outside."
