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.
#Packers LT David Bakhtiari, carted away from practice last night with his shoe off, suffered just a sprained left ankle, source said. He’ll miss some practice time, but it doesn’t sound too serious.

I’m told Bakhtiari is “going to be ok.”

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.
