Guion Injury Was Significant Blow to Packers Defense 

The 29-year-old veteran is expected to play an important role on the Packers defense this season after signing a three-year, $11.25 million extension in the offseason.

Guion was suspended for the start of the 2015 season and started only four of the 13 games he played. However, the team recognized his importance in the middle of the defensive line and rewarded him with a long-term deal.

The 6'4", 322-pound tackle started the first two games for the Packers this year, earning two tackles in each contest, including one for loss.

Before coming to Green Bay in 2014, Guion spent the first six seasons of his career with the Minnesota Vikings, becoming a full-time starter in the last two.
