The Packers could get David Bakhtiari back in Week 10.

There’s potentially good news for the Green Bay Packers ahead of their game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 10.

Star left tackle David Bakhtiari has missed three games due to a chest injury but could be set to make his return this week.

On the first injury report this week, Bakhtiari is listed as a full participant.

Just because Bakhtiari practiced in full today doesn’t mean he’ll definitely return this week against the Jaguars. The key will be seeing whether he can also practice fully tomorrow. However, it’s a great sign for his availability that he was able to practice in full this early in the week.

The Packers’ offensive line has been dominant this season even without Bakhtiari, but there’s no doubting what great news this would be to have their All-Pro back in the lineup this week.

There’s more good news as running back Jamaal Williams and inside linebacker Kamal Martin are set to return this week. They are no longer on the reserve/COVID-19 list so will be able to play.

Still uncertain whether Packers will have top two CBs this week

We still don’t know whether starting cornerbacks Jaire Alexander and Kevin King will be ready to go this week.

Alexander suffered a concussion in last week’s win over the San Francisco 49ers. He didn’t practice today, a sign he’s still in the concussion protocol. That’s not a great sign for his availability this week.

King has been out of action with a quad injury and was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday’s injury report. That doesn’t tell us a lot as he was limited all last week but didn’t play. The hope is that he’ll be able to get in at least one full practice in this week, but we’ll see.
