The Packers are expected to open their season without both of their starting offensive tackles today.

Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari and right tackle Elgton Jenkins are both unlikely to play in today’s game against the Vikings, according to NFL Network.

Bakhtiari was listed as questionable with the knee injury that caused him to miss almost all of last season, while Jenkins was listed as questionable with a knee injury as well as a pectoral injury.

Packers receiver Allen Lazard is unlikely to play today with an ankle injury, so Aaron Rodgers will be playing with a severely depleted offense.

  1. Aaron will be seeing stuff just like in the off season now he hill get hit so hard he won’t need the drugs

  2. Smith and Hunter must be drooling right now. We’ll see what actually happens in about 9 hours, Rodgers will either be a corpse or the replacements will stun everyone and hold their own

  3. Jenkins when healthy is almost as good as it get’s Bakhtiari we’ll see he’s been injured for a very long time add age and i doubt he’ll ever regain the form he had as the best LT in football but he’ll be ok whenever he can make it back.

  4. Packers are limited to running and quick passes. Anything that takes time will be met with a sack. That is all

  5. Next Man Up. They didn’t play on the 14-3 team last year, either. NFCN teams try as they can to take advantage of this annual equalizer, but they still come up short.

  6. Jenkins needs more time to recover and Bakhtiari is done. He had a great career and sad to see an injury end it.

  7. The Vikings starters should be a good test for our backups, and this should make for a much closer game.

  8. It will be a severe blow to the Vikings and their vaunted defense when the Packers beat them without their two outstanding starting offensive linemen.this may be the best chance the Vikings have this year to beat them,at home,healthy and hungry so when they lose it may set the tone for another long losing Vikings season.

  9. IMO as an arm chair guy, I think the Vikes put a beat down on the Packers and make a statement who is the new king of the NFC North.
    Packers are no different then teams in others leagues that give the franchise to one or two players and then try to win with a team of scrubs as fill ins. 1 5th, 1 6th nd 4 7th rounders made this team.
    I dont think the GM is a genius I think its about the lack of money on hand and it will bite them in the arse this year.

  10. I just hope the officials today keep calling penalties on MN and favor the Packers because they’re so beloved. It would be a disgrace if the game was called fairly.

    Incidentally, this also helps Vikings fans feel good about themselves after the smack down GB is laying today. It gives them something to rant and scream about. GPG!

  11. Kinda figured. Bakhtiari might well be done playing ball permanently. Jenkins is only 9 months into ACL rehab. I’m surprised Tonyan is playing.

  12. The GB Kids on the O-Line will do just fine. Just like they did the last 6 or 7 games of last season.
