It's probably the wisest choice. It was arthroscopic clean up. Could have been to remove debris left after the major surgery, that was causing the swelling. Still, there's no way they should risk having him out there before he's totally healed.
From what I’m reading, 6+- weeks is a generality before normal activity. Obviously much depends on the severity of the issue. Best case I could see him on the practice field by close of December. I’m hoping he’s ok and this is more a precautionary motion.
David’s age is factor as he’s relatively young and he likely has a PT assigned to him. If he’s committed without any setbacks I see 4-5 weeks area (to at least practice).
I’m in agreement that I’d do our best to have him out there in the playoffs.

Bakhtiari's return would be a GREAT Christmas or NY present to the offense. IMHO we're OK without him until then, so let him heal, strengthen & be confident for the playoffs.
What is that old Dusty Springfield song? " Wishin' and Hopin' and Dreamin'.....You will be his! "

While the Packers offense might be able to get by for another game without Bakhtiari they will need to get him and/or Myers back after the bye week for the unit to be successful down the road.

The question for me is if and when we get Bak, Z and Jaire back how effective will they be and how long will they last?

I expect all of them to be rusty at first but as long as they're healthy believe they will have a positive impact pretty fast.

My guess is Bakh is not going to see the field this year. It seems that he has swelling in his knee, not a good sign for a speedy recovery. The NFL needs to outlaw the rubber fields. Ive been thinking - is it good to be bringing back the injured players for "the stretch run" when it is likely that said players will be rusty, and may be a slight liability from not seeing the field.

Can we change the title to this thread please. It’s been long enough now.

It’s like a teaser every week and it’s not really accurate this season.
He is not back. Let’s use that when we’ve gotten a true thumbs up.

Might as well make a thread that says

“J’aire, Bak and Z are all back!”

Bakhtiari is on the active roster while Alexander and Z remain on injured reserve though. Unfortunately MLF already announced that he won't play vs. the Rams on Sunday.

Just my opinion, but a smart move. The more he can heal, and condition, the better off he'll be, and the team. He may be the key to a move in the playoffs.

Given that Bakhtiari had a setback and another surgery, don't expect him back this season. His knee may continue to give him problems as it has the past 3 weeks. I hope the additional surgery helped, but his recovery from the ACL injury certainly hasn't gone smoothly. Nijman will need to handle the LT position in his absence.

Bakhtiari haven't suffered a setback is the only reason he hasn't played so far this season. That's not something I feel good about.
