Left tackle David Bakhtiari hasn’t played a down for the Packers this season, but the team hasn’t shut him down for the season and he took a step back toward the lineup on Wednesday.

Bakhtiari was listed as a limited participant in practice for the first time since he had arthroscopic knee surgery in late November. Bakhtiari tore his ACL late last season and opened the season on the physically unable to perform list. He was activated and briefly returned to practice before heading back to the operating room.

The Packers noted that they held a walkthrough, so exact participation levels were an estimation. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was listed as out with the toe injury he’s been dealing with for the last few weeks and he would almost certainly have been out of a full practice session as well.

Right tackle Billy Turner (knee), wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion), and tight end Dominique Dafney (ankle) were also listed as out. Running back Aaron Jones (knee) joined wide receivers Malik Taylor (abdomen) and Marquez Valdes-Scantling (back) in the limited category.

  1. Its impossible to believe we’ve gone 10-3 missing so many All-Pro players.

    Deepest team in the league.

  2. Nope. Not that deep. Just very little difference between all these supposed all pros and their backups. The QB makes them all better. Keeps them from being exposed. Even the defenders have easier jobs because of 12. Easier to play D with a lead, and when you get more chances at their QB in pass rush situations. You will see it when he goes away whether it happens next season or in 5 yrs. This Packer team which I’m a huge fan of has no more than 6 PLUS players at their positions. LT69. QB12. WR17. CB23. OLB55. NT97. and maybe MLB59. That’s it. The rest are just guys. Don’t give Gutey credit for a very avg. roster unless its credit for know what straw really stirs the drink. Which until he keeps 12 here he has not proven to know.

  3. I would have to go brilliant coaching over depth, especially offensively. Its a clinic every single week.

    The job they’ve done on the O-line is amazing. Down 2 All-Pros and 4 starters overall, if Turner misses time. They’re top 10 in rushing yards, and giving up only 2 sacks per game.

    Its COTY worthy.

  4. Don’t give Gutey credit for a very avg. roster

    The defense is as solid as it has been in quite awhile. Very savvy pickups in Campbell and Douglas. Stokes has been as good as anyone could have hoped for. Really solid D-line, and probably as good as any team @ S.

    As much as the next guy, I’d love to see another solid, consistent WR. But its not hurting the team. Between MVS, Lazard and ESB, they’re getting it done.

    The scheme is brilliant. Better than anything we’ve seen since Holmgren. There really is no stopping it.

    You can say Rodgers carrys it all, but I really don’t think that is fair. The O-line and running game is great, and for whatever reason, teams can’t take away Adams.

    … its a fun ride. Has been the last 3 years. Hopefully they hit the jackpot this year.

  5. I think the new O-line coaching staff has been a big deal. In years past, the Pack had guys like Marshall Newhouse and Jason Spriggs that would come in and struggle like crazy. Now it seems like they can put in any of these young guys and they hold their own. If they can hold up against the Bucs, who I assume they will face, the Pack has a good chance of playing in February.
