The Packers closed out last season without David Bakhtiari or Elgton Jenkins in the lineup and it’s been unclear for much of the offseason if they’d be back to face the Vikings in Week One.
That game is drawing closer and things look to be moving in a positive direction for both players. Bakhtiari said this week that he believes he’s on track to start this weekend and he was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday.
Jenkins drew the same listing on Green Bay’s first injury report of the year. Both players are recovering from knee injuries and Jenkins is also listed with a pectoral injury. The Packers have Bakhtiari listed as the starting left tackle with Jenkins at right tackle.
As previously noted, wide receiver Allen Lazard (ankle) did not practice. Safety Darnell Savage (hamstring) and tight end Robert Tonyan (knee) were also limited participants.
Kicker Mason Crosby (right knee), linebacker Tipa Galeai (elbow), center Jake Hanson (shoulder), safety Dallin Leavitt (shoulder), tackle Yosh Nijman (knee), and wide receiver Christian Watson (knee) were full participants.
