Packers activate David Bakhtiari

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is expected back on Sunday, and he will likely have his starting left tackle protecting his blind side.

Green Bay officially activated left tackle David Bakhtiari off the physically unable to perform list, where he’s been all season.

That makes Bakhtiari eligible to play Sunday against the Seahawks, and they presumably wouldn’t have activated him if they weren’t planning to put him on the field.

Bakhtiari has been out since suffering a torn ACL in Week 16 last season.

  1. Nice upgrade having Bahktiari back, will allow the Packers to take Newman out of the lineup. Go Pack.

  2. If they didn’t activate him by today, he’d have to go on injured reserve for the season. No guarantee he plays Sunday, though.

  3. Jordan Love did pretty well in non-blitz plays. Unfortunately, two-thirds were blitz packages. The left side, one guy, gave up way too many pressures by himself. It’s a good thing Bakhtiari is returning because I think this team is going to need Jordan Love before the season ends.

    Nah. Definitely the right side and it’s typically caused by a guy named Royce Newman. Dude’s given up 5 sacks at the guard position through 9 games and let’s someone run free at the QB multiple times on a weekly basis. Bakh will kick Jenkins back to RG, Runyan will move over to LG and let’s hope Myers can come back soon so he can kick Patrick off of the line as well.

  5. With Jenkins playing well, they don’t have to force him into action.

    The team has done an amazing job with the line. Rodgers sack numbers are up, but he’s not getting beat up, and the running game has still been really solid. Pretty impressive, considering how many games the starters have missed.
