Add David Bakhtiari to List of Packers Not Practicing

There have been no reports as to the reason David Bakhtiari missed practice for the Packers in Green Bay on Thursday, but head coach Mike McCarthy will give an update at a press conference later in the afternoon.

Likewise, there was no report as to who was filling in on the offensive line in the absence of Bakhtiari and Dietrich-Smith, although the makeup of the starting lineup has to come as a concern with so many backups playing significant roles.

The Packers would have to choose from some combination of Josh Sitton, T.J. Lang, Don Barclay, Marshall Newhouse, Derek Sherrod and Lane Taylor.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers may have practiced in pads for the first time since breaking his collarbone on Thursday, but the Packers would have to think long and hard about letting him operate behind a makeshift offensive line in a game environment.

The offensive line struggled as it was with only Dietrich-Smith missing from the team's last game against Detroit when they allowed seven sacks to Matt Flynn.

Also missing practice on Thursday were linebacker Mike Neal (abdomen) and defensive linemen C.J. Wilson (ankle) and Ryan Pickett, who's missing practice for the first time this week.



Mike McCarthy said Bakhtiari went home ill on Thursday, though he did take part in team meetings.

I hate to say I was right by spouting off, lets draft two top O linemen to fill in for the oft injured guys we have now. Gee that seemed like great wisdom at the time.
My reasoning is Belagy Hip and Sherrod leg, no real center and the other guys are oft injured so how do we protect that 121 million dollar man. More bodies.

Belagy ? Never heard of him. Did TT just sign him or what?

Heck at this rate might have to plug in a D lineman.

And the hits just keep on coming. If Bakh and EDS are both out, there's NO WAY the team should let Aaron anywhere near the field even if he is healthy.

This is the Packers super bowl and last time I checked Aaron Rodgers is on the roster. If he's healthy enough he needs to be out there. It's do or die. There's no tomorrow after Sunday. Every damn man available needs to be out there including Mr. Rodgers.

so rodgers should be out there if his collarbone isn't healed 100%?

sure, why not? then at least we know what to complain about Monday. It's getting old to talk about the D or McCarthy's play selections. And if he gets hurt and be out longer term, we have 10 months to prepare for a long and terrible season 2014...

Longshanks's picture

Yes, he should. Everyone plays hurt why should Rodgers be exempt. This is a man's game.

Its die tomorrow not do!

Evan's picture

Illness. He'll be fine for Sunday.

Newhouse LT? LOL. Awesome, let's play #12 and then listen to all the gripes Monday morning about #12 being carried out of Lambeau on a stretcher.

Wilson, Pickett injured? And I loved his Mustang Sally song.

plus a C chord

Or we could try #12 at LT and Newhouse at QB. #12 will be much less apt to get injured and Newhouse may finally get his merciful ending.

PackerPete's picture

LOL. I like that approach.

themasterfake's picture

The offense could do no worse
