Week 15 of the 2021 NFL season kicked off on Thursday with a win by the Chiefs and it was set to continue with 14 more games on Saturday and Sunday, but those plans changed on Friday. The Browns-Raiders game scheduled for Saturday has been moved to Monday while the Washington-Eagles and Seahawks-Rams games set for Sunday will now be played on Tuesday. COVID-19 outbreaks with the Browns, Washington and the Rams led to the changes.

7 responses to “NFL Week 15 injury report roundup: David Bakhtiari, Billy Turner out for Packers

  1. With injuries and coivid issues, teams need a standby squad in addition to the practice squad! NFLPA should push for an extra ten players under control for each team.

  2. I don’t care if Bakhtiari plays again this season. The Next Man Up O-line is doing pretty well. Getting a healthy Bakhtiari back next year is better than a first round draft pick. That’s the benefit of depth, at nearly all positions.

  3. One of the highest paid LT’s in the game. Never healthy.

    Nice try.

    Started 118 of 128 games prior to this injury.

  4. Turner will be the 4th Packer lineman to miss time. They’ve only given up 2 sacks/game and are top 10 in rushing yards.

    Remarkable coaching job and with their personnel.
