The Packers will be without a key starter on the offensive line again for Sunday’s game
The Green Bay Packers are hoping to keep their season alive on Sunday with a Christmas Day showdown in Miami. Needing to win out, plus get some help, the Packers still have a chance at the playoffs.
As they look to take care of business and survive another week, they will have to beat Miami without a key player on the offensive line.
Tackle David Bakhtiari is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game by the Packers on Friday. He’s dealing with a knee injury as well as an abdomen injury and has missed the past two games. He had to have an emergency appendectomy earlier this month, as the team has been without the former First-Team All-Pro.
Another healthy practice for the #Packers, who were again inside the Don Hutson Center on Thursday.

Without Bakhtiari, Green Bay has managed to go 2-0 with wins against Chicago and the Los Angeles Rams in that span. They also had a bye week sandwiched in between.
Bakhtiari is the lone Packers’ player to have an injury designation this week, entering the game pretty healthy for this late in the year. Meanwhile, Miami has listed Terron Armstead, Bradley Chubb, Myles Gaskin, Jeff Wilson Jr., Eric Rowe and Jaelan Phillips as questionable.
River Cracraft and Eric Fisher are doubtful for the game on Sunday.
