Packers starting left guard and former Oklahoma State lineman Lane Taylor suffered a torn biceps muscle during a practice a week ago that will require surgery, reports Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The Packers placed him on injured reserve Saturday and he would become eligible to return in eight weeks, but his recovery timetable is unlikely to have him return before the end of the season. He did not play in the Packers’ 27-16 win over the Broncos in Week 3.

Taylor signed with Green Bay as an undrafted free agent in 2013 after starting 47 games from 2010-12 for Oklahoma State. He’s under contract with Green Bay through the 2020 season.
