The Pro Bowl left tackle hadnt practiced all week and was listed as doubtful in the teams Friday injury report. The Packers announced Saturday that Bakhtiari had been ruled out for the game and didnt make the trip to Houston.
Bakhtiari was injured in the third quarter of a 38-10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
