GREEN BAY, Wis (WFRV) – He’s finally back. All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari has been activated from the physically unable to perform list, the Packers announced late Wednesday afternoon. This was the last day the Packers had to activate the left tackle or he would have been done for the entire season.

Bakhtiari has been out since suffering an ACL tear during the last week of the regular season in 2020.
