Packers’ David Bakhtiari undergoes knee procedure

Green Bay Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in a bid to return for the team’s stretch run to the playoffs, NFL Network reported Tuesday.

Bakhtiari initially had knee surgery in January following an ACL tear on New Year’s Eve. He was activated off the reserve/physically unable to perform list on Nov. 10, but has yet to play a game this season for the Packers (8-3).

“He won’t be out there this week (against the visiting Los Angeles Rams on Sunday),” coach Matt LaFleur said. “We’ll see where he’s at after the bye. We’re hopeful that he will be able to come back this year at some point.”

Elgton Jenkins, 25, had played in Bakhtiari’s place before sustaining a season-ending ACL tear in Green Bay’s 34-31 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Yosh Nijman, 25, replaced Jenkins versus the Vikings. He is expected to start against the Rams (7-3).

Bakhtiari, 30, was selected to the Pro Bowl for the third time last season. He was also named to the All-Pro team in 2018 and 2020.

Bakhtiari has started in all 118 games in which he has appeared since being selected by Green Bay in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL Draft out of Colorado.
