Valdes-Scantling doubtful vs. 49ers; Alexander, Bakhtiari questionable
The Packers could get reinforcements in the form of two pass-rushers.
Bakhtiari, who missed nearly all of the regular season after tearing his ACL late in the 2020 campaign, returned in Week 18 against the Detroit Lions and played the first 27 snaps. However, he sat out practice Tuesday and Thursday.
LaFleur didn't reveal if the Pro Bowler was dealing with a setback.
"He's working his tail off," LaFleur said. "And we'll see where he's at."
While the Packers' offense will likely be missing Valdes-Scantling, it'll get a boost with the return of Randall Cobb, who was activated from injured reserve Thursday following core muscle surgery.
Right tackle Billy Turner, who missed the last month of the regular season with a knee injury, has also been cleared to play.
