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.
Jan 15 - 5:51 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.

Packers LT David Bakhtiari (ankle) does not believe he will need surgery this offseason, but he did not completely rule it out.

A bad ankle injury forced Bakhtiari to miss the final two games of the regular season and the Wild Card round, and there was some concern he could be sidelined the rest of the season. "I did a lot of damage to it. Tore a few ligaments, had some widening. It’s been a mess. So thankfully I didn’t have to get surgery," Bakhtiari said. He was able to make it back for the Divisional Round loss but was still in a considerable amount of pain. Even if he needs surgery, Bakhtiari should be ready for training camp.
Mon, Jan 18, 2016 12:09:00 PM

Packers LT David Bakhtiari (ankle) is listed as probable for Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Cardinals.

Bakhtiari didn't practice on Friday but it looks like he was just getting a breather. He'll be good to go on Saturday. J.C. Tretter got the start in his place last week against the Redskins.
Fri, Jan 15, 2016 02:40:00 PM

Packers LT David Bakhtiari (ankle) practiced for the second straight day Thursday.

Bakhtiari is on track to return after missing the Wild Card round. J.C. Tretter will make another start on the blindside if Bakhtiari can't suit up against the Cardinals.
Thu, Jan 14, 2016 01:15:00 PM

Packers declared LT David Bakhtiari, QB Brett Hundley, CB Sam Shields, OG Josh Walker, TE Justin Perillo, TE Kennard Backman and LB Jayrone Elliott inactive for the Wild Card round against the Redskins.

An already dysfunctional offense will be without its blindside protector for the biggest game of the year. Don Barclay is filling in. The deck is stacked against Aaron Rodgers, who will need a monumental personal effort to advance the Packers to the Divisional Round.
Sun, Jan 10, 2016 03:18:00 PM

Packers LT David Bakhtiari practiced on a limited basis Friday and is listed as questionable for the Wild Card Round at Washington.

Aaron Rodgers' blind-side protector is shaping up as a game-time decision after practicing on a limited basis Thursday and Friday. Although it was not "full," Bakhtiari's ability to turn in consecutive days of practice suggests he'll give it a go against the Skins. Don Barclay is Bakhtiari's backup.
Fri, Jan 8, 2016 04:10:00 PM

Packers LT David Bakhtiari (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

It’s a concern after Bakhtiari missed last week’s NFC North title. The Packers were forced to start Josh Sitton at left tackle, leading to five sacks. Bakhtiari needs to get in at least one practice to return for the Wild Card Round.
