Packers-Vikings injury report: Bakhtiari, Bulaga limited

In the accompanying video, watch the tight ends at work and more from Wednesday’s practice inside the Don Hutson Center.

Green Bay Packers coach Matt LaFleur listed 15 players on his first injury report of the week on Wednesday, a list that included left tackle David Bakhtiari (back) as limited participation .

As was the case on Monday, only receiver Darrius Shepherd (hamstring) and inside linebacker Oren Burks (pectoral) did not practice. Cornerback Ka’Dar Hollman (neck) continued wearing the red, no-contact jersey.

Rain forced the Packers inside for practice as they continued preparations for Sunday’s NFC North showdown against the Minnesota Vikings. The game kicks off a stretch of five home games in six weeks - a potentially defining stretch for LaFleur's inaugural season as coach.

“The way I see it, it’s one week at a time," he said. "We can’t look any further than today and preparing to go out and do the best job that we can and get better today. I see it as one game at a time. I’m not worried about what comes down the road. It’s the Minnesota Vikings. We know that they’re flying high right now. They just put a thumping on a really good football team. We’ve got our work cut out for us, in front of us, and we’ve got to stay focused on that task at hand.”

LaFleur gave veterans Bryan Bulaga and Tramon Williams limited work to keep them fresh.
