The Green Bay Packers (0-1) will be without the services of five-time All-Pro LT David Bakhtiari when the Packers host the Bears (1-0) on Sunday Night Football.

So Elgton Jenkins and Allen Lazard will play.
For Jenkins, it's his first game since his Nov. 21, 2022 ACL tear.
With Bakhtiari (knee) sidelined the packers turn to backup LT Yosh Nijman to protect Aaron Rodgers’ blindside against a ferocious Bears pass rush. Nijman has started in just nine games after going undrafted in 2019.
WR Allen Lazard, RT Elgton Jenkins, and OG Jon Runyan will suit up after they were deemed questionable in Friday’s injury report.
Making Rodgers’ life tough is the key in beating this Packers team.
Sacking 49ers QB Trey Lance five times in Chicago’s Week 1 win is a performance that needs to be replicated if the Bears are to have a chance on Sunday night.

Bears rookie Dominique Robinson absolutely dusted him on one of his first regular season NFL snaps en route to a one-handed sack. What a friggin' play by the fifth-rounder. #DaBears pic.twitter.com/myWloj59ip
Chicago will look to exploit a glaring deficiency on the Packers’ offensive line in order to pull off a second straight upset, and send shockwaves throughout the NFL.
