Alexander active, Bakhtiari out for Packers’ Divisional round playoff game


GREEN BAY, Wis. — Packers offensive tackle David Bakhtiari will not play Saturday night against the 49ers after being ruled inactive by the team.

Bakhtiari returned to the field for the team’s regular season finale against the Lions, which was his first game action in more than a year after tearing his ACL in 2020.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that Bakhtiari reported some “discomfort” during the week.

The Packers did, however, list Jaire Alexander as active after he had been dealing with a sprained shoulder.

Safeties Shawn Davis and Vernon Scott; linebacker Jonathan Garvin; and wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling are also inactive for Saturday’s game.

Kickoff for the Divisional Round game against the 49ers is at 7:20 p.m. on Fox.
