David Bakhtiari's injury deemed "not too serious," per reports

GREEN BAY -- The Packers have seen quite a few scares this training camp, but fans can take a breath regarding David Bakhtiari's ankle sprain. 

According to several reports, Bakhtiari's injury isn't very serious and that it shouldn't jeopardize his availability for week one.

 

This would have been a huge blow to the Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense, but they can now breathe easy. The 26-year-old Bakhtiari is one of the league's top offensive linemen, finishing with a 93.4 pass-blocking grade, the best mark in the NFL among O-linemen. 

He was ranked as the 20 best player in the NFL according to Pro Football Focus, after allowing just 20 total QB pressures in 16 games.
