David Bakhtiari had arthroscopic surgery on knee

Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari was activated from the physically unable to perform list a couple of weeks ago, but he has not played in any games and he won’t play this week either.

NFL Media reports that Bakhtiari is recovering from recent arthroscopic surgery on his knee. Bakhtiari tore his ACL last December and the surgery cleaned up the same knee.

Bakhtiari will not practice or play this week and the Packers have a bye in Week 13. The hope is that Bakhtiari will be able to return at that point and the Packers could use some reinforcement up front.

Elgton Jenkins had been starting at left tackle in Bakhtiari’s absence, but he tore his ACL against the Vikings on Sunday and will miss the rest of the year. Yosh Nijman took over and he’s set to start against the Rams this week.

  1. The Packers will be adding 4 All-Pros to the roster in the next couple weeks.

    Jaire Alexander, Za’Darius Smith, David Bakhtiari, and Aaron Jones all returning for the stretch run.

  2. This is not the Packers team that knocked the Rams out of the playoffs last season. The A-team has given way to the B-team, now giving way to the C-team. Injuries take their toll.

  3. Glad the Vikings hold the tie breaker over GB, cause they’ll have identical records one week after the Packer bye. Don’t worry, Packers, you’ll still get a road wild card game…

  4. I get the feeling this is gonna turn out like 2009, with a turnstile at LT.

    I bet Rodgers still wakes up in a cold sweat thinking about Jared Allen that year.

    Aaron Jones has never been an All-Pro.

  6. Best LT and best beer guzzler in the NFL — and I’m not saying that cause the Vikes won Sunday (even though they were without their best player (Hunter), starting TE, starting center, and two defenders playing on one leg each (Barr and Peterson) — see the injury game can be played both ways).

  7. Gee Purpleguy real enlightening there, opened my eyes. That 3 point win at home clearly establishes the 5-5. Vikes with their .500 QB as a team to be reckoned with. Until they aren’t (3 weeks should show it).
