Packers left tackle Bakhtiari taken off the field on cart
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) – Green Bay Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari was taken off the field on a cart, dampening the spirits Saturday at Family Night at Lambeau Field.
Bakhtiari walked to the cart with his left shoe removed.
Asked if Bakhtiari’s injury was a major concern, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said: “I don’t have enough information to answer that. I know it’s his ankle, but that’s all I know.”
Bakhtiari was named a second-team All-Pro each of the last two seasons, the first Packers offensive tackle to earn back-to-back All-Pro accolades since Hall of Famer Forrest Gregg.
The Packers have been getting through training camp without one of their starting offensive tackles. Right tackle Bryan Bulaga practiced on Friday for the first time since suffering a torn right ACL against Detroit on Nov. 6 but did not practice on Saturday.
“The sooner we can get the five we think are going to be the first five kind of starting to get a chance to jell together, the better,” quarterback Aaron Rodgers said on Friday.
Ten players did not practice for the Packers, including receiver Randall Cobb (ankle) and defensive tackle Mike Daniels (quad).
