The Packers offensive line has been shuffled a bit with the loss of left tackle David Bakhtiari
The Green Bay Packers are looking to right the ship when they travel to D.C. to take on the Commanders in Week 7. But when Aaron Rodgers and the offense hit the field on Sunday, they will do so without a key piece on the offensive line.
Left tackle David Bakhtiari will miss the Week 7 game against the Commanders, forcing a shift on the Packers offensive line. With Bakhtiari out, Zach Tom will take over at left tackle with Yosh Nijman at right tackle.
Here is a look at the Packers starting line via Matt Schneidman:

Now, this could cause some problems for Green Bay on Sunday.
The Commanders strength is the pass rush, led by Montez Sweat. And if they can find a way to get a lot of pressure early on, it could be a nightmare for Rodgers and company. This shuffle on the line, especially the left side, will be something to monitor early and often in this game.
Let’s hope it doesn’t play too much of a factor in this one and they can find a way to somehow survive this week.
