The Green Bay Packers received the news they have been waiting for: David Bakhtiari will return to Green Bay and has been removed from the PUP List.
This is great news for Green Bay, who is widely considered one of football’s most outstanding offensive linemen. Green Bay will need all the help they can get, as Aaron Rodgers is likely to have a harder task without Davante Adams, the wide receiver extraordinaire.
The Associated Press had the following to report:
“We’re going to take it a day at a time,” LaFleur said, “There’s no thought as far as Week 1 is concerned right now. We just want to see how he responds. And when he’s ready, he’s ready.”
According to NFL.com, Bakhtiari had the following to say:
“I was extremely grateful and had my own personal moments the first time I came back because it was awesome,” Bakhtiari told reporters following Sunday’s practice. “It’s just tough when it gets taken from you ’cause it’s not by your choice. That was something that I had a hard time giving up, basically my knee saying no. This time now, I realize that I cannot control as much as I want to. I like to be in control of my destiny and it’s just more like, ‘Hey, what are you feeling like today, knee? How are you doing? You holding up well? Cool, we’re in this together, man.’”
“It’s been the journey that I’ve had to attack, and I just know that I’m not gonna break no matter what,” Bakhtiari said. “I know what I’m capable of and what I’m going to do. Whenever that moment that gives me that solace and that peace when I get to go back out there and play, I’m just excited.”
It will be fascinating to see how the Packers perform this season. They are likely to be a great team again, with Aaron Rodgers continuing to be one of the most respected quarterbacks in the NFL.
