The Green Bay Packers on Sunday welcomed left tackle David Bakhtiari back to practice.

Bakhtiari sprained his ankle on Aug. 4 and was carted off the field during Family Night. Plenty of those at the Packers facility feared the anchor of their offensive line would miss significant time.

But a little more than a week later, the five=year veteran was back at practice.

According to profootballtalk.com, Bakhtiari didn’t take part in team drills, but just his presence is a sign that his injury has responded well to treatment.

Tight end Jimmy Graham, who had missed a handful of practices as well as the preseason opener, also was back at practice Sunday. Graham had banged knees with a teammate.

It’s not certain if either Bakhtiari or Graham will be available for Thursday’s preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
