Packers-Cardinals Wednesday Injury Report: Bakhtiari, 7 others miss practice

Five of the eight non participants are starters.

It's a really good thing that the Green Bay Packers aren't playing on Thursday Night Football this week.

That is because the team had eight players sit out Wednesdays practice as they prepare for their week 13 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals. That game is on Sunday afternoon, a relief for the battered Green and Gold, who will hopefully see more players return to practice as the week goes on.

Head coach Mike McCarthy joked in his press conference on Wednesday that he might have only had 42 available players had the team played today. That is likely counting those who were limited in the first practice of the week.

Most critically, there are several starters who were missing in Wednesday, including anchors on both lines. Left tackle David Bakhtiari was absent as a result of the knee injuries he suffered last Sunday in Minnesota, while defensive lineman Mike Daniels remains out with a foot injury. Joining them were a trio of defensive backs, two starters in Bashaud Breeland and Kentrell Brice plus a key reserve in Raven Greene.

Meanwhile, the Cardinals had just one player miss practice due to an injury. That was versatile linebacker Deone Bucannon, who is dealing with a chest injury.
