No David Bakhtiari could be ‘catastrophic’ for Aaron Rodgers

GREEN BAY, Wis. — If a starting cornerback is out — and the Green Bay Packers have a couple who fit that description right now — you don’t have to sit linebacker Clay Matthews in order to protect him. But when neither of your starting tackles can play, then why put Aaron Rodgers at risk in a preseason game?

Perhaps Rodgers wouldn’t have played anyway — he has not played in a preseason opener since the summer of 2015 — but with left tackle David Bakhtiari’s sprained left ankle likely to keep him out for a few weeks and right tackle Bryan Bulaga held out of 11-on-11 drills to this point in his return from last year’s ACL surgery, there’s little chance that Rodgers will play in Thursday’s exhibition opener against the Tennessee Titans.

The question, however, is how much trouble would the Packers — and more specifically Rodgers — be in if the starting offensive line looked like it did in Monday’s practice? It was former sixth-round pick Kyle Murphy
