The Green Bay Packers wrap up the practice week with a short workout today before heading east for Sunday’s wildcard playoff game against the Washington Redskins.
The Packers listed 18 players on their injury report on Friday. Corner Sam Shields is listed as doubtful with a concussion.
Left tackle David Bakhtiari walked without a limp in the locker room on Friday but offered no comment when asked about his availability for Sunday’s game. He is listed as questionable on the injury report.
If Bakhtiari can’t play, Mike McCarthy said earlier in the week that Josh Sitton would stay at left guard. It would appear to leave J.C. Tretter to play left tackle as the most likely replacement.
Masthay sets franchise mark
Punter Tim Masthay finished the regular season with a punting net average of 40.2, which ranked 14th in the NFL, but set a Packers franchise record.
Masthay’s previous best ranking in net average was 17th in 2010. His previous best net average was 39.0 in 2013.
Goode has surgery
Long snapper Brett Goode underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee on December 28. His contract expires at the end of the season. He will be an unrestricted free agent.
His replacement, rookie Rick Lovato, has a two-year minimum deal that runs through 2016.
