Wow. Just terrible new for Packers and Bahktiari. Tough to replace the best LT in the game.

Have to suck it up. Expect if Wagner is healthy, Turner moves to LT with Wagner at RT. If no Wagner then probably Jenkins moves out to LT with Runyan at LG.

Packers gotta stay focused and not let this become an excuse.

Likely won't have him for most of next year and possibly not at all. Big men can take a year plus to recover.

Every team has injuries. No one gets a break. And the Packers have fared better than most.

This is a significant loss, but O line is deep. And there are no glaring holes at any other position group.

Still poised to go deep into the playoffs.

Hard to take but its the next man up. Wish DB all the best I hope its not a serious as there assuming. Packers are fortunate they have a few good backup lineman. Horrible loss but you move on and play the game.

Yep. Should have Wagner back. Get a win Sunday and then a bye to rest up.

Agreed. At least it's not like 2015 where we were sliding Josh Sitton out there to play LT vs. the Cardinals. We actually have three guys with LT experience (Jenkins, Turner and Wagner).

Runyan made 26 starts at left tackle in college.

Dissapointed! Frustrating but at same time Packers have been blessed this year with minimal injuries to key players. Jenkins....

I'd like them to sign Veldheer off the Colts practice squad, but have a feeling they won't.

It’s a tough break. No doubt. But, as always, next man up.

Certainly a tough break, especially to see it happen in practice, but Gute has positioned us well with our O line depth. Speedy recovery Bak. GPG!
