Report: Bakhtiari to start training camp on PUP list as recovery continues
GREEN BAY, Wis. — Packers star David Bakhtiari will start training camp on the physically unable to perform list, according to a report from ESPN’s Field Yates.
The move comes as the left tackle continues to recover from an ACL injury that he suffered in 2020. Bakhtiari was activated off of the injured reserve towards the end of last season, but saw very little playing time and did not appear in the Packers’ playoff game.

The Packers reportedly placed nine players, not including Bakhtiari, on the PUP list earlier this week. Those players included kicker Mason Crosby, tight end Robert Tonyan and rookie wide receiver Christian Watson.

All nine of those players, along with Bakhtiari, remain listed on the active roster on the Packers’ website.
Because the Packers have not started training camp, the players on the PUP list are free to return to the field once they are cleared by medical staff. Training camp begins next week, with the first public practice scheduled for July 27.
