The Packers suffered a serious blow on Thursday when left tackle David Bakhtiari suffered a season-ending knee injury during practice.

On Friday, Packers head coach Matt LaFleur called the injury “just one of those freak things that sometimes happen” in the NFL. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers said that he’s “still kind of in the grieving process” after speaking to Bakhtiari late Thursday afternoon.

“Was hoping for some good news. Didn’t get it. You’ve got to move on, but right now it’s still a little raw,” Rodgers said, via Ryan Wood of PackersNews.com.

Billy Turner started at left tackle when Bakhtiari missed time earlier this season. If he gets the nod again, Rick Wagner could take over at right tackle.

  1. And excuses about a guy who has ZERO TDs this year will not make your team better. Hes JAG…move on.

  2. Hoping the surgery is successful and Bakhtiari comes back stronger than ever next season. The team will win this one, and hopefully 3 more after that, for #69. Go Pack!

  3. We had 16 people on IR in 2010 and went through 4 Left Tackles in 1996. We can do it, though he will be missed.

    “We”? What position did you play? Or do you still think you are an “owner”?

  6. Odd to see Rodgers admit to caring about anything other than himself. It’s more like him to be talking about winning the MVP

    Well it has got to be hard for you that your 2 years 96M extension for Cousins set back your salary cap and no sign of the playoffs for your team. If you would bother to notice, Rodgers is well thought of in the locker room, by former players and by the media. All the disdain comes from fans of teams that passed on him in the draft. And some teams, passed twice!
