Without Bakhtiari, Nijman’s Had Rodgers’ Back


As David Bakhtiari struggles through a knee injury, Yosh Nijman has been a revelation at left tackle for the Green Bay Packers. Here’s his story and his matchup for Sunday at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. GREEN BAY, Wis. Almost exactly one year ago, with David Bakhtiari on injured reserve and Elgton Jenkins out with an ankle injury, the Green Bay Packers were forced to turn to Yosh Nijman for a Week 3 showdown at the San Francisco 49ers. "I can’t believe it’s been a year already. It’s been fun. It’s been a lot of fun," Nijman said on Friday, a couple days before perhaps starting another Week 3 showdown, this one at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
