Every week we bring you all the inactives from the 1 p.m. ET games in one post, constantly updated with the latest information.

Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari last took the field in a regular season game in Week 16 of last season, but his long wait to get back on the field will finally come to an end on Sunday. Bakhtiari tore his ACL in practice days after that Week 16 game and his recovery process included arthroscopic knee surgery during the season. He returned to practice recently, however, and is in the lineup against the Lions on Sunday.

Bakhtiari will not be blocking for running back Aaron Jones. Jones is inactive after being listed as questionable with a knee injury. He and the rest of the Packers will have two weeks off before they return to action for the divisional round of the playoffs.
