Injuries have played a big role during the Green Bay Packers' disappointing start to the 2022 season. Fortunately, Green Bay has gotten some reinforcements back in recent weeks, like top offensive tackle David Bakhtiari.

However, Bakhtiari has now popped up back on the injury report a day before his team's Week 7 game.

Bakhtiari is now questionable for this Sunday's contest against the Washington Commanders due to his troublesome left knee. Despite returning to the field in Week 3 after a lengthy absence, it's clear the All-Pro is still working his way back to his pre-injury self, so Green Bay will exercise caution if any issues arise.

This has been a years-long saga for Bakhtiari, who originally tore his ACL in December 2020 and has had multiple procedures since to repair his injured left knee. After missing 16 games last season, Bakhtiari finally suited up for the Packers in Week 3 and has played in each of their last four contests.

Hopefully the three-time Pro Bowl OT hasn't suffered any kind of setback and his appearance on the injury report is just precautionary. It's certainly a cause for concern, though, given his health issues. Green Bay losing Bakhtiari again would be a massive blow to a team that's already struggling.

Anxious Packers fans will likely have to wait until Sunday for clarity on Bakhtiari's knee. For now, Green Bay heads into this Week 7 matchup against Washington as 4.5-point road favorites, according to NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
