Bakhtiari Activated from PUP List

Green Bay Packers offensive tackle David Bakhtiari has been activated from the physically unable to perform list as the 2020 All-Pro selection moves closer to making his season debut.


The Packers needed to activate Bakhtiari by Wednesday for him to play this season. Bakhtiari hasn’t played since tearing his left anterior cruciate ligament on Dec. 31.


This move makes Bakhtiari eligible to play as soon as Sunday when the Packers (7-2) host the Seattle Seahawks (3-5). Packers coach Matt LaFleur hasn’t said when Bakhtiari will return.


Elgton Jenkins, a 2020 Pro Bowl left guard, has been filling in for Bakhtiari at left tackle.

Bakhtiari, 30, earned first-team All-Pro honors last season and in 2018.


The Packers have been using Jenkins at left tackle, Jon Runyan Jr. at left guard, Lucas Patrick at center, Royce Newman at right guard and Billy Turner at right tackle. Rookie second-round pick Josh Myers opened the season as the starting center but is on injured reserve because of a knee issue.
