Cheese Curds , 8/24: Packers’ tackles critical for 2018, Adams reaches out to fan
October 29, 2018 07:16PM
There are two positions on the Green Bay Packers’ roster that appear to have a tremendous dropoff between the starter(s) and http://www.authenticsgreenbaypackers.com/cheap-david-bakhtiari-jersey the backups: quarterback — as we all saw in 2017 after Aaron Rodgers’ injury — and offensive tackle. Just about every other position appears to be able to at least function mostly capably if a starter gets hurt. However, given the performance of the Packers’ backup tackles in the preseason, there are few if any players save for Rodgers whose availability is more critical than David Bakhtiari and Bryan Bulaga.2017 saw that pan out early as well, as the Packers were at one time down to their fifth and sixth options at the position — both converted guards in Lane Taylor and Justin McCray. Yes, the Packers were able to win a game with those two starting, but it was over a Chicago Bears team who was starting Mike Glennon for the last time.Perhaps the only other player who can make a case for being more critical to the team’s fortunes on an individual health basis is wide receiver Davante Adams, who already has thrilled Packers fans in very limited snaps this preseason. While on the verge of breaking into the elite group of NFL receivers Color Rush Jimmy Graham Jersey , Adams showed this week how much he appreciates fans of him and his team in a fun interaction with one of them in particular.After checking out today’s curds, be sure to keep it here at APC for full coverage of tonight’s Packers-Raiders preseason game.Packers' season could hinge on health of two tackles | Packersnews.comI'll argue that the season WILL hinge on the health of their tackles.

Two-time second-team All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari was forced to leave the practice on a cart, making him a reason for significant concern as the team looks ahead to its first preseason game of 2018 on Thursday.However, it appears that Bakhtiari was able to avoid any serious injuries. As NFL Network's Ian Rapaport reported on Sunday, Bakhtiari's injury is apparently a sprained ankle rather than a more serious issue like a fully torn ligament.This is welcome news, and it suggests that there is still a good chance that Bakhtiari will be ready to go by the time the regular season begins in five weeks.Bakhtiari's injury came on the heels of his bookend's return. Right tackle Bryan Bulaga had just been cleared to practice and removed from the PUP list a day prior, putting him ahead of schedule in his return from a torn ACL last November. Thankfully, he appears on schedule to be ready by week one as well. With Bakhtiari likely spending the next few weeks rehabbing his ankle, look for Jason Spriggs and Kyle Murphy to split the starter's reps at left tackle. With Bulaga still not ready for full team drills Color Rush Antonio Morrison Jersey , those two players will presumably start in the preseason opener against the Tennessee Titans on Thursday, though which player will be on which side is yet to be revealed.UPDATE: In his Monday press conference, head coach Mike McCarthy confirmed that Bakhtiari’s injury is not serious, saying that “it’s not of a long-term nature.”
