The good news? Green Bay Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari returned to practice this week. The bad news? He’s still not ready to make his regular-season return.

The Packers have ruled out the All-Pro tackle for Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens. He is one of three players to be ruled out for Green Bay in Week 15.

As well as Bakhtiari, the team has ruled out tight end Dominique Dafney due to an ankle injury, and tackle Billy Turner due to a knee injury.

Wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown will also likely be out for the Packers — he is listed as doubtful on the injury report due to a concussion.

Defensive tackle Kenny Clark could also miss the game as he’s on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Two players are questionable, wide receivers Malik Taylor and Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

Taylor is dealing with an abdomen injury. He practiced all week but was limited. Valdes-Scantling has a back injury that also limited him each day of practice this week.

Running back Aaron Jones, who was on the injury report due to both a knee injury and illness, returned to practice on Friday. While he was limited, he carries no injury designation for Sunday’s game.

As expected, quarterback Aaron Rodgers will play despite missing practice all week. As he’s done in recent weeks, Rodgers will continue to play with his toe injury.

The Ravens have ruled out guard Ben Powers, while defensive tackle Calais Campbell is listed as doubtful to play on the injury report.

The big story this week has been about Lamar Jackson’s ankle injury. We still don’t know if he will play. Jackson didn’t practice at all this week but is listed as questionable on the injury report, so there’s still a chance he’ll be able to play on Sunday. That will be one to watch.
