Packers Star Tackle Will Return This Week

Great news for the Green Bay Packers.

Offensive tackle David Bakhtiari was removed from the Week 17 injury report and will play this week against the Minnesota Vikings.

Bakhtiari has missed several weeks after undergoing an emergency appendectomy in the middle of the season. He was also listed on the injury report this week with a knee injury, more than likely the same knee issue that has been affecting him all season.

The Packers could keep Bakhtiari on a snap limit in his first game back but, regardless, his return is great news for Aaron Rodgers and the team this week.
