The Packers are now without their top two offensive lineman as of August 10. Although that’s not ideal, it might not last for very long. The improvements David Bakhtiari and Elgton Jenkins have made has impressed Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst, but he won’t yet set a timeline for their comeback.
“No time frames at this time. Both of them are doing fantastically” said Gutekunst. “They both have a chance to play early in the season, in my opinion. However, we won’t set any deadlines for it. If it comes to it, we’ll keep the football team’s members on the list of those who are physically unable to perform because we believe it’s best for them. However, they are making excellent progress.”
Due to a persistent knee problem that needed another surgery this summer, Bakhtiari missed all but 27 snaps of the season. Jenkins, however, is currently recovering from an ACL tear he sustained during the 2021 season. In the next few weeks, we’ll observe how their inflammatory live performances go.
