David Bakhtiari is playing vs. the Buccaneers today and the Packers' offensive linemen have customized T-shirts made
And you could say his fellow offensive linemen were pretty thrilled.
To mark the occasion, Royce Newman and Josh Myers boarded the charter plane on Saturday with customized Bakhtiari T-shirts.
Bakhtiari started the game and the Packers offense started strong, scoring on their first drive.
The Packers' All-Pro left tackle tore his ACL during a practice on New Year's Eve 2020 and it's been a long road to recovery.
He only played one game last season, a Week 18 contest against the Detroit Lions. In that game, he played just 27 snaps. He did not play in the team's NFC divisional playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers a couple weeks later.
Bakhtiari has had multiple setbacks on his recovery with follow-up surgeries.
Besides Bakhtiari's fellow linemen, you can bet Aaron Rodgers was ecstatic to have his close friend back protecting his blind side.
Speaking of Rodgers, his pre-game look also generated a lot of conversation on social media, just as his haircut did prior to Week 1.
