OL - GB - OUT
Week 12 Outlook
Packers LT David Bakhtiari underwent arthroscopic surgery to clean up his knee that was reconstructed back in January.
This explains why he hasn't returned to game action yet. The hope is that he'll be closer to ready following the Packers' Week 13 bye. His presence would be an upgrade to the entire offense.
Packers LT David Bakhtiari (ACL) won't play in Thursday's Week 8 game against the Cardinals.
Bakhtiari has returned to practice, but he isn't ready to play in a game just yet. There is some optimism that he'll be able to go in Week 9 against the Chiefs. His return should be considered a boost to the entire Green Bay offense.
Packers OL David Bakhtiari (ACL) is practicing on Wednesday.
This is the first time he has practiced since tearing his ACL last December 31st. His return is a welcomed one for the entire Green Bay offense.
Packers coach Matt LaFleur says OL David Bakhtiari (ACL) will begin practicing this week.
This opens his three-week window to return. Bakhtiari began the year on PUP and has yet to play this season. He might not return in Week 7 against Washington, but he's close. This is good news for the Packers' offense as a whole.
Packers offensive tackle David Bakhtiari is set to miss the first six weeks of the season after the Packers opted to keep their star LT on the PUP list to open the 2021 season due to a lingering knee injury.
This is obviously a huge blow to the Packers offense as a whole, as Bakhtiari is simply among the league's best in the trenches in both the passing and run game. Hopefully he is able to recover fully in those six weeks and return in time for the Packers Week 7 matchup against DE Chase Young and the Washington Football Team.
