According to ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky, LT David Bakhtiari (questionable, hamstring) has a "decent chance" of playing Sunday against the Cowboys.

Demovsky said Bryan Bulaga (questionable, ankle) is also likely to play. This is good news for Aaron Rodgers, who played behind a patchwork offensive line in last week's win over the Bears. Bakhtiari hasn't suited up for the Packers since Week 1.

Packers LT David Bakhtiari (hamstring) is questionable for Week 5 against the Cowboys.

Bakhtiari has sat out the last three games with a nagging hamstring injury but has a good chance of suiting up Sunday after getting in a second straight week of limited practice. Bryan Bulaga (ankle), who was also absent for Week 4, is questionable as well.

Packers LT David Bakhtiari (hamstring) and RT Bryan Bulaga (ankle) are both inactive for Week 4 against the Bears.

Somewhat incomprehensibly, the Packers are missing their top five offensive tackles. Expect Aaron Rodgers to be throwing on the run often on Thursday Night Football.
Thu, Sep 28, 2017 07:04:00 PM

Packers LT David Bakhtiari (hamstring) has resumed practicing.

It's a step in the right direction after Bakhtiari got in three DNPs last week. The Pack may still just be trying to move Bakhtiari along for Week 4, but are thin along their offensive line right now. Fill-in LT Kyle Murphy (foot) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. Bakhtiari hasn't played since Week 1.

Packers LT David Bakhtiari (hamstring) is doubtful for Week 3 against the Bengals.

Barring a miraculous recovery in the next 48 hours, Bakhtiari will be absent for the second week in a row. 2016 sixth-rounder Kyle Murphy will fill in at left tackle.

Updating an earlier report, Packers LT David Bakhtiari (knee) has returned to Sunday's Divisional Round game against the Cowboys.

Bakhtiari injured his right knee in the second quarter but only missed one series. Jason Spriggs filled in at left tackle during his brief absence.

Packers LT David Bakhtiari left Sunday's Divisional Round game against the Cowboys with a right knee injury and is questionable to return.

He rolled his right knee in the second quarter while blocking for Ty Montgomery on his one-yard touchdown. Bakhtiari jogged off on his own power but quickly headed for the locker room. Jason Spriggs is in at left tackle.

While Packers RG T.J. Lang (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 11, LT David Bakhtiari (knee) is fully expected to play at Washington.

Lang is a big loss, but we would've had much larger concerns if Bakhtiari was out, too. "Bakhtiari looks good," coach Mike McCarthy said Friday. "I have no concerns." Aaron Rodgers will be a top-five quarterback play at Washington.

Packers LT David Bakhtiari (knee) is holding out hope he will be able to play in Week 11 against the Redskins.

Bakhtiari left Sunday’s loss to the Titans with a third-quarter knee injury and did not return. Fill-in Jason Spriggs promptly coughed up two sacks. The Packers need Bakhtiari back to help ward off the Redskins’ underrated pass rush.
Mon, Nov 14, 2016 04:22:00 PM

Packers LT David Bakhtiari exited Week 10 against the Titans with a knee injury.

Bakhtiari suffered the injury in the third quarter and was not seen again. It is possible he would have returned in a closer game, but we will not know for sure until the Packers issue an update. Rookie Jason Spriggs took over after Bakhtiari went down. With RG T.J. Lang also going down with an ankle injury, the Packers could face serious issues along the offensive line, which has been one of the few strengths of the offense.
Mon, Nov 14, 2016 08:16:00 AM

Packers signed LT David Bakhtiari to a four-year, $51.67 million extension through 2020.

Bakhtiari was in the final year of his deal. The contract reportedly includes around $17 million in fully guaranteed money and another $10.7 million in bonuses likely to be earned. A fourth-round pick in 2013, Bakhtiari has developed into one of the best left tackles in the league and is only 25 (this month). If the Packers had to choose between Bakhtiari and Josh Sitton, they made the correct choice.
Tue, Sep 13, 2016 09:44:00 AM

Packers LT David Bakhtiari (back, questionable) will play Week 1 against the Jaguars.

He was considered a game-time call after being added to the injury report on Saturday. Bakhtiari received PFF's 10th-highest pass-blocking grade out of 76 qualifiers at tackle last season. His presence should make Aaron Rodgers' owners breathe a little easier on Sunday.
Sun, Sep 11, 2016 08:46:00 AM

Packers LT David Bakhtiari (back) is listed as questionable for Week 1.

Bakhtiari is a late addition to the injury report after practicing fully all week. His status will likely be a game-time decision. Second-round pick Jason Spriggs would start at left tackle if Bakhtiari is held out.
Sat, Sep 10, 2016 02:40:00 PM

Packers LT David Bakhtiari said the sprained ankle he suffered in December will require regular attention moving forward.

"It's hard when something like that changes your ankle," Bakhtiari said. "You have to be conscientious of it and make sure that if anything happens, or if you notice anything, just make sure to take care of it and not let it linger." The injury did not require surgery, but it sounds like it is something he will have to deal with for the rest of his career. Bakhtiari is entering the final year of his rookie deal. No. 48 overall pick Jason Spriggs may be Green Bay's left tackle of the future.
