Left tackle David Bakhtiari, who missed three straight games with an ankle injury, is expected to return to the lineup for the Green Bay Packers when they face Arizona in the NFC Divisional Playoffs.
Bakhtiari sat out Friday’s practice, but was listed as probable on the Packers latest injury report. In his absence, the Packers used Don Barclay, Josh Sitton and J.C. Tretter. Tretter held his own in last week’s wildcard win at Washington. Barclay and Sitton struggled previously.
Bakhtiari’s return means the Packers will have all five of their preferred starters in the lineup for the first time in weeks.
Packers make roster move
The Packers made a roster move on Friday, placing tight end Andrew Quarless on injured reserve and signing cornerback Robertson Daniel off of the teams practice squad to fill the roster vacancy.
The Packers went with defense instead of adding another receiver to the mix. The Packers will go into Saturday nights game with four healthy receivers, Randall Cobb, James Jones, Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis.
Defensive backs Sam Shields (concussion) and Quinten Rollins (thigh) are both listed as questionable heading into the game.
