As always, the Green Bay Packers’ Family Night on Saturday was a great event for one and all. Well, all except left tackle David Bakhtiari, who reportedly suffered a sprained ankle during the practice that forced him to leave Lambeau Field on a cart.
Thankfully for Bakhtiari, that’s all the injury appears to be, instead of it being something more significant. A few weeks off during the preseason should do him plenty of good, hopefully putting him back close to 100% in time for the regular season opener. Of course, Bakhtiari is a grizzled veteran now, and he probably does not need much practice time to be ready to go for game action anyway; nor would he reap much benefit from significant preseason snaps.
Today, the Packers get back to work after a day off following Saturday’s festivities, and the makeup of the offensive line will be something to monitor during this afternoon’s practice. With right tackle Bryan Bulaga probably still sitting out of team drills, that means that Jason Spriggs and Kyle Murphy should get the snaps with the first-string offensive line at the two tackle positions. However, it will be interesting to pay attention to see which player will line up on which side, or if the players will switch back and forth.
As always, keep up with news and updates from practice, which is scheduled to begin at 12:15 PM today. Follow below and discuss in the comments!
