REPORT: Packers’ LT David Bakhtiari to miss first six weeks of season
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Green Bay Packers All-Pro David Bakhtiari will miss the first six weeks of the season, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.
Rapoport reports the Packers are keeping the LT on the PUP list as he continues to recover from a torn ACL.
Bakhtiari has been out since Dec. 31, 2020, when he was injured during practice.
ESPN reporter and Cover 2 analyst Rob Demovsky says injured reserve was not an option because Bakhtiari would have to be named to the 53-player roster. He would have to pass a physical.
