GREEN BAY, Wis. (WEAU, WBAY) - NFL Network is reporting Green Bay Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari suffered a torn ACL during practice on Thursday. This comes after Bakhtiari was added to the injury report with a knee injury.

The injury would no doubt end the all-pro left tackle’s season. ESPN’s Rob Demovsky is also reporting the injury is season ending. He did not however confirm if the injury was in fact a torn ACL.

Bahktiari missed three games earlier this season due to a chest injury. Offensive lineman Billy Turner started in his place at left tackle. Recently crowned Pro Bowl guard Elgton Jenkins has also filled in for Bahktiari.

The Packers (12-3) travel to Chicago (8-7) to face the Bears on Sunday afternoon at 3:25 PM.
