Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Don Barclay (67) battles linebacker Mike Neal (96) during training camp at Ray Nitschke Field last month.

Don Barclay will start at left tackle when the Green Bay Packers play at the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday afternoon.

David Bakhtiari, listed as doubtful with an ankle injury, will be inactivce for the first time this season. Bakhtiari injured his ankle last week at the Oakland Raiders. In Bakhtiari's absence, Barclay will make his fifth start this season, his first at left tackle. Barclay has started four games at right tackle.

Center Corey Linsley (ankle) is also activated. It's unclear whether he or JC Tretter will start against the Cardinals. Linsley was active last week but did not play against the Raiders, with coach Mike McCarthy citing a medical reason for the decision. Linsley has said his ankle feels much better this week than last week.

The Packers will also be without their top cornerback, Sam Shields. He has yet to pass concussion protocol. With rookies Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins likely starting on the perimeter, the Packers secondary will be challenged against a talented Cardinals receivers group that features Pro Bowler Larry Fitzgerald.
