New Year’s Day Cheese Curds: 2020 takes out David Bakhtiari’s ACL in one final act of cruelty

Turns out 2020 had one more surprise for Packers fans and it was not a pleasant one.

Mere hours before the calendar turned to 2021, news broke that Pro Bowl left tackle David Bakhtiari suffered what is feared to be a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the season. Earlier reports said he was limited in practice with a knee injury and the news took an ever darker turn from there.

This is a huge gut punch to a team that has legitimate Super Bowl aspirations. Bakhtiari’s presence protecting Aaron Rodgers’ blind side is critical to the quarterback’s improvisational skills.
