The Green Bay Packers got a key starter back from the Reserve/COVID list on Monday
Last season, the Green Bay Packers entered their playoff run with questions on the OL, mainly, who would start at the OT spots following LT David Bakhtiari’s ACL tear. This year, there is again a question of who will start along the OL.
This time, however, the tone is much different. The same question is being asked because the Packers’ OL is getting healthy at the right time of year.
After Bakhtiari and rookie C Josh Myers returned to action on Sunday in Detroit, the team just added RT Billy Turner back to the active roster off the reserve/COVID list.
This is great news for the Packers, who not only welcomed back Bakhtiari and Myers, but also reshuffled their starting OL. Turner’s return would have the OL from Left to Right going Bakhtiari-Runyan Jr-Myers-Patrick-Turner. The trio of Bakhtiari, Myers and Patrick graded out very well on Sunday:
A few pressure numbers from yesterday per PFF:
Bakhtiari at LT: 20 pass block snaps, no pressures
Myers at C: 22 pass block snaps, 2 pressures, no sacks
Patrick at RG: 32 pass block snaps, 0 pressures

There was a sense the Green Bay Packers felt like a different team this year. Heading into the biggest games of the season, that statement rings true and hopefully will lead the team to its ultimate goal: winning the franchise’s fifth Super Bowl.
