Bakhtiari was able to play all 33 snaps with the starters against the New England Patriots last Thursday, according to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, but he did not practice on Saturday. He is the 13th player on the Packers’ injury list, which includes outside linebacker Nick Perry and first-round rookie cornerback Damarious Randall.
Bakhtiari, who turns 24 next month, was a fourth-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. He has started all 32 regular-season games of his career (plus three playoff games), anchoring quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ blind-side protection.
Utility reserve Don Barclay is filling in for Bakhtiari at left tackle while the starter rests his injured knee, according to ESPN.
