Everyone started practice for the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, but not everyone made it through practice. Starting right tackle Bryan Bulaga suffered what the Journal Sentinel is calling a left knee injury.
It’s the same knee Bulaga tore up prior to the 2013 season.
Bulaga took part in most of the drills and didn’t step off to the side until late in the part of practice open to the media. He stood on the sideline as a trainer talked with him and then removed his left knee brace.
The veteran appeared to be in some discomfort, but it’s not clear whether he was able to return or was taken to the training room.
If the Packers had to play without Bulaga this weekend, they would turn to Don Barclay.
Barclay started for Bulaga during the 2013 campaign and played well enough, but he’s coming back from a torn ACL himself. Barclay was shaky early in the preseason, but settled in as it went on.
It wouldn’t be the end of the world if Barclay had to go. That said, I think we can all agree that we’d prefer to have all hands on deck against Seattle’s defensive front.
More as we know it.
