GREEN BAY — Green Bay Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari has apparently avoided a serious injury.

Bakhtiari was hurt during the Family Night practice on Saturday at Lambeau Field. He walked to a cart with his left shoe removed before being driven back to the locker room.

Coach Mike McCarthy said before practice Monday that Bakhtiari’s injury is “not of the long-term nature.” Bakhtiari will be evaluated as he goes through rehab.

Bakhtiari is one of the team’s most important offensive players as quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ reliable blind-side protector.

Starting right tackle Bryan Bulaga just returned to practice on a limited basis following a right ACL injury that knocked him out at midseason last year.

Green Bay has placed inside linebacker Jake Ryan on injured reserve. One of the team’s best run-stoppers suffered a significant right knee injury in practice last week.

The Packers play their first preseason game on Thursday at home against Tennessee.
