Packers Get Amazing News With David Bakhtiari Injury Update
Green Bay Packers offensive tackle David Bakhtiari's 2020 NFL season came to an abrupt end when he suffered an ACL tear during practice back in December.
However, rebounding from an ACL tear can take a lot of time. While some experts speculate that Bakhtiari won't be ready to go before the 2021 season kicks off, that actually may not be the case. The Packers received amazing news regarding Bakhtiari's rehab on Monday as it looks like he could be "way ahead of schedule."
David Bakhtiari Injury Update
ACL injuries are tough to deal with and sometimes can take up to nine months to completely heal. However, Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst seems to believe that if anyone can heal ahead of schedule, it's Bakhtiari.
Gutekunst said that the offensive tackle is "a unique individual" and it wouldn't "shock" him if he was ready to start the season.
Before his injury happened, Bakhtiari was having a great season. The 29-year-old had taken just four penalities while allowing a single sack on 758 offensive snaps last season. His 91.8 overall ProFootballFocus grade also ranked him among some of the best at his position.
As it stands, the Packers are expected to be Super Bowl contenders again this season. FanDuel Sportsbook has given them +1200 odds to hoist the championship at the end of the season.
Considering how important Bakhtiari is to their offensive line, a speedy recovery will help their Super Bowl hopes.
