Packers' David Bakhtiari: Unavailable against Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bakhtiari (chest) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Texans.

Bakhtiari entered the weekend doubtful and was predictably downgraded after missing a full week of practice. This will be just the seventh game Bakhtiari has missed over seven years in the league. Rick Wagner or Billy Turner is expected to start at left tackle against a fierce Texans pass rush.

Packers' David Bakhtiari: Not expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bakhtiari (chest) is considered doubtful to play Sunday against the Texans.

Bakhtiari has started every game since the beginning of the 2018 season, and the Packers' offensive front will be severely downgraded without the All-Pro left tackle in the picture. Either Rick Wagner or Billy Turner is expected to start at left tackle in Bakhtiari's place.

Packers' David Bakhtiari: Injury severity downplayed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Matt LaFleur said Sunday that he doesn't have any short- or long-term concerns about Bakhtiari's chest injury, Matt Schneidman reports.

Bakhtiari was forced out of Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Buccaneers in the second half, when he was downgraded to out after having initially been listed as questionable to return. The star left tackle's next chance to retake the field will come Oct. 25 in Houston, but if he were forced to miss any time, the Packers would rely on Rick Wagner to start.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bakhtiari (chest) is questionable to return to Sunday's contest against the Buccaneers, Olivia Reiner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Packers' David Bakhtiari: Earns second Pro Bowl bid
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bakhtiari started all 18 games for the Packers in 2019.

For the second straight season and the third time in four years, Bakhtiari started every game for the Packers. The 28-year-old protected Aaron Rodgers' blindside well and earned his second Pro Bowl bid as a result. He'll retain his starting role in 2020, the final year of his contract.

Packers' David Bakhtiari: Officially active
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bakhtiari (back) is officially listed as active for Sunday's game against Minnesota.

Bakhtiari was dealing with a back injury late in the week at practice, and, as evidenced by this news, it isn't serious enough to hold him out. He'll slot in at his usual spot at left tackle.

Bakhtiari popped up on the injury report earlier in the week with a sore back, but, as evidenced by this news, is expected to be fine. His availablity will reinforce the offensive line, especially on Aaron Rodgers' blind side.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bakhtiari (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Vikings.

According to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, Bakhtiari said his back was "just not cooperating." Bakhtiari's absence would hinder the team's offense, so his availability is important to keep an eye on Sunday.

Packers' David Bakhtiari: Practicing Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bakhtiari practiced Friday after missing Thursday's practice with a back injury, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Bakhtiari's absence Thursday left his status for Week 2 up in the air -- not ideal for for the effectiveness of the Packers' offense against a stout Vikings defense -- but his presence Friday puts him on track to take the field in Week 2.

Packers' David Bakhtiari: First action of preseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bakhtiari started Thursday's preseason game against the Ravens.

Bakhtiari suffered a hip injury in Week 17 last season, but he has not experienced any issues since. He was held out of the Packers' first exhibition game along with most of the starters, but with him able to take the field Thursday, consider him good to go for Week 1.

Packers' David Bakhtiari: Aggravates hip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bakhtiari was forced out of Sunday's game versus the Lions with a hip injury.

Bakhtiari, who protects quarterback Aaron Rodgers' blind side, nursed this hip injury ahead of Sunday's game but he was able to tough it out at the start. The Packers may be opting to hold out Bakhtiari as a precautionary measure since Rodgers is being evaluated for a concussion and DeShone Kizer has taken over under center.

Packers' David Bakhtiari: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bakhtiari (knee/ankle) is active for Sunday's tilt against Arizona, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Bakhtiari dealt with multiple injuries leading up to Sunday's game, and it appears he's playing through them despite not being 100 percent healthy. If he aggravates an injury, look for Jason Spriggs to step in at left tackle.

Packers' David Bakhtiari: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bakhtiari (knee/ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Bakhtiari is dealing with two left knee injuries and a left ankle injury but still has a chance to play Sunday after returning to practice as a limited participant. Jason Spriggs is the likely candidate to step in at left tackle should Bakhtiari not suit up.

Packers' David Bakhtiari: Adds third injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

In addition to two left knee injuries, Bakhtiari is also battling a left ankle injury and will not practice Wednesday, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Bakhtiari has a laundry list of issues that will hold him out of Tuesday's practice session, leaving his status in doubt for Sunday's contest against the Cardinals. His status for Sunday's game against the Cardinals should be clarified by Friday's injury report, but the veteran missing the contest would be a big blow for the Packers, especially in regards to protecting Aaron Rodgers' blindside.

Packers' David Bakhtiari: Suffers multiple injuries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bakhtiari suffered two different injuries to his left knee in Sunday's loss to Minnesota, Tom Silverstein of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Bakhtiari exited Sunday's game in the third quarter with a knee injury but was able to return. Upon returning, he injured the same knee. He didn't offer specifics after the game, only saying the two injuries were different and he'd consult with doctors Monday. It's unclear if the issues will sideline him for future games, and he should be considered questionable for Week 13 until further notice. Jason Spriggs is likely to see a spot start if Bakhtiari is ultimately held out.

Packers' David Bakhtiari: Playing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bakhtiari (ankle) will play in Thursday's game against the Steelers, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Packers' David Bakhtiari: In line to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bakhtiari (ankle) took first-team reps in practice Monday and is expected to play in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Bakhtiari sprained his left ankle just over a week ago, but with his return to the practice field with the starters this week, the team feels confident that the blind side blocker, along with quarterback Aaron Rodgers, will be ready to go Thursday.

Packers' David Bakhtiari: 'Very limited' in practice Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bakhtiari (ankle) returned to practice Sunday but was "very limited," Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

Bakhtiari suffered a left ankle sprain early in training camp. The Packers will rightfully be very careful with Bakhtiari, who protects Aaron Rodgers' blindside, and Sunday was likely a test to see how well the ankle is recovering. Look for Kyle Murphy to get first-team reps as long as Bakhtiari remains out of team drills.
