GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers should have two concerns after Saturday's practice: Starting left tackle David Bakhtiari joined the injury list, and that list has grown to 13 -- the most since training camp opened more than two weeks ago.
Bakhtiari played all 33 snaps the starters took in Thursday's preseason opener at the New England Patriots but did not did practice Saturday because of a knee injury. The Packers did not specify the severity but considering Bakhtiari attended practice and appeared to be moving around fine on the sideline, it did not look serious.
Bakhtiari has not missed a game in his NFL career. He has started all 35 games (including playoffs) at left tackle since he came into the league as a fourth-round pick in 2013. He got off to a shaky start this preseason, allowing two sacks in the first quarter against the Patriots. Coach Mike McCarthy made no mention of an injury to Bakhtiari after the game.
Don Barclay replaced Bakhtiari in practice, but left tackle is a new spot for him. He played right tackle against the Patriots and struggled in his first action since he tore his ACL in training camp last summer. He has 18 career NFL starts (four in 2012 and 14 in 2013), and all have come at right tackle.
The other 12 players who did not practice were: WR Jared Abbrederis (concussion), WR Javess Blue (shoulder), WR Adrian Coxson (concussion), CB Damarious Randall (groin), CB Tay Glover-Wright (hamstring), CB Demetri Goodson (calf), OLB Nick Perry (groin), DT Mike Daniels (ankle), TE Justin Perillo (concussion), DE Josh Boyd (knee) and DT Letroy Guion (hamstring).
Here are some other notes from Saturday's practice:
Returned to action: Although he did not play against the Patriots, linebacker Clay Matthews (knee) took part in his third straight practice going back to last week. Two others who did not play also returned. They were: S Sean Richardson (pectoral) and T Vince Kowalski (concussion).
Quickest two minutes in football: Brett Hundley made quick work of things during the two-minute drill. The rookie quarterback hit receiver Larry Pinkard for a 57-yard pass completion down the right sideline. On the next play, he threw an 8-yard touchdown to Pinkard, who beat cornerback Quinten Rollins on both plays. Rollins was one of the standouts from Thursday's game.
Short session: McCarthy kept the team on the field for only 90 minutes on what was one of the hottest days in camp. A thermometer on the field showed 82 degrees, but humidity also was a factor. It was scheduled to be a short, non-pads practice anyway, but McCarthy said he would "adjust to the heat if we have to."
Regular schedule: There's no practice Sunday. McCarthy said he will treat next week like a regular-season week with a rare Sunday afternoon game at Pittsburgh. Players will practice Monday and then take their usual day off Tuesday.
