Report: David Bakhtiari has a sprained ankle

Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari got carted off the field during Saturday night’s practice at Lambeau Field, but it reportedly won’t be too long before he’s back in action.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Bakhtiari has been diagnosed with a sprained left ankle. It is expected to keep Bakhtiari off the practice field for a while, but it does not appear to be an injury that would jeopardize his availability for the regular season.

Bakhtiari’s injury comes just after right tackle Bryan Bulaga was cleared to practice after opening camp on the physically unable to perform list. Bulaga is coming off a torn ACL, which was one of a slew of injuries to an offensive line that ran through 11 different combinations last season.

They’ll need to do a bit more scrambling until Bakhtiari is ready to go again and then they’ll go back to hoping for better luck on the health front.

  1. Maybe the Pack and Vikes could hold a joint training camp scrimmage – then they might be able to cobble together one healthy starting o-line group.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    With the luck these two teams have had on their O-lines over the past few years, I don’t think I’d want to risk putting them all in the same place at the same time. There could be a meteorite strike… or the Earth might open up and swallow them… or they could get abducted by aliens… or who knows what else.

    I just spit coffee all over now that was funny! Glad to hear he is okay I want BOTH teams to be healthy week 2!

  4. Glad it looks like he’ll be ok. Training camp and preseason games… dislike injuries during this time.

  5. aside from rodgers and fixing the defense, their depth on oline was probably the most important thing to address this offseason. And they didnt… their depth was pathetic by years end with the injuries they had. A-aron wont last the season behind that line if injuries bite them again

  6. Packer trolls don’t like hearing Bakhtiari is the best player on the squad, and it isn’t close. I’d welcome him on my Vikes, anytime. Too bad his teammates are divas and me-first guys.

    When you get to nit pickin’ and try to look like you know what’s going on by making fun of someones’s spelling, you should really try to get it right.
    That way you don’t look like as big a fool as you do on this “Karma” miss.

    More of annual sameness.

    Next Man Up.
    —————
    LOL……
    There is no next man up in Green Bay.
    The entire team is carried on Rodgers back/arm.

  9. Glad he will be ready by the opener.

    How is Elflein?

    I fear for the Vikes QB.

    Their o-line is one of the worst in the league. I give him about 35 snaps before the 36th “snap” is a season ender.

  10. Worry about your shambles of a O-line that Kirk Cousins blamed for his horrible performance at your night practice Saturday. Those in attendance said he looked lost and epically bad throwing the football.

    Our O-line is a strength and yours is a weakness and you know this.

    Your QB is trying to learn a new offense behind a crap O-line. You are worried and it is showing Barneys.

    Go cry in a Vikings thread. Not here.

    See you Sept 16th. at Lambeau.

  11. The 2018 Packers probably won’t be as good as that 1961 team that had 12 Hall Of Famers on the roster, but if we get half of that we’ll be fine.
