Packers RT Bryan Bulaga has been getting in limited practices this week, and has yet to be ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets.

How Bulaga feels on Friday and Saturday will be the "final test." Typically, it would be in the Packers' best interest to get Bulaga at least one week of rest, but Derek Sherrod was so bad in his absence that they're apparently willing to push the envelope. Bulaga is still unlikely to return before Week 3.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky sets RT Bryan Bulaga's timetable for return at 2-4 weeks.

Demovsky believes that's the usual timetable for an injury like Bulaga's. It's definitely better news than an ACL, which Bulaga tore last year, costing him the entire 2013 season. The Packers will try to make do with Derek Sherrod in the meantime. Andrew Quarless will likely have to block more.

Packers RT Bryan Bulaga has been diagnosed with a torn MCL.

Although MCL tears don't typically require surgery, this one figures to shelve Bulaga for a month or more. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, it's still "undetermined" how much time Bulaga will miss. Losing Don Barclay during the preseason is a loss that's felt right now. Fill-in RT Derek Sherrod got abused by Seattle's defensive front on Thursday night. The Packers will play the Jets in Week 2.
Sep 5 - 3:17 PM

Packers RT Bryan Bulaga has been diagnosed with a left-knee sprain, but the team believes he's avoided "major" injury.

Even a minor knee sprain could hold Bulaga out for multiple weeks, but it's a bullet dodged for the Pack after Bulaga missed all of 2013 with a torn left ACL. The news is even better considering how overmatched Derek Sherrod looked in relief. Bulaga has 10 days to heal up for the Pack's Week 2 tilt with the Jets. His status should be updated no later than next Wednesday.

Packers RT Bryan Bulaga was forced from Green Bay's Week 1 game against the Seahawks with a left knee injury, and will not return.

That's the same knee that cost Bulaga all of 2013 with an ACL tear. Bulaga wasn't carted off, but headed to the locker room midway through the second quarter. Derek Sherrod will finish the game at right tackle. It's a major concern for the Packers.
Sep 4 - 10:10 PM

Coach Mike McCarthy said Bryan Bulaga will move back to right tackle in 2014, leaving David Bakhtiari at left tackle.

Bulaga was going to be the Packers' left tackle last season before tearing his ACL in August. Rookie Bakhtiari stepped in on Aaron Rodgers' blind side and handled himself adequately. Don Barclay, the right tackle in 2013, could compete with J.C. Tretter for center duties. The Packers' line from left to right: LT Bakhtiari, LG Josh Sitton, C Tretter/Barclay, RG T.J. Lang, and RT Bulaga.

Packers OT Bryan Bulaga's (knee) rehab remains on schedule.

Speaking at the Combine Friday, coach Mike McCarthy said Bulaga is currently in Florida rehabbing. He tore his ACL last August and should be ready for camp. McCarthy also said no decision has been made on whether Bulaga will play left or right tackle. We expect him to play the right side with David Bakhtiari sticking on Aaron Rodgers' blind side. Bulaga has one year left on his rookie deal.

Packers OT Bryan Bulaga says he is open to playing either tackle spot in 2014.

It'll be a contract year for Bulaga, who missed all of 2013 with a torn ACL suffered in early August. A right tackle his first three NFL seasons, Bulaga was supposed to be Green Bay's 2013 left tackle. After rookie David Bakhtiari held up well on the blind side, Bulaga's likeliest 2014 position is right tackle.
Jan 10 - 12:22 PM

Packers placed LT Bryan Bulaga on injured reserve with a torn ACL, ending his season.

Bulaga went down in early August. The Pack briefly considered having him play through the injury, but wisely opted against it. Marshall Newhouse will protect Aaron Rodgers' blindside this season. Signed through next season, Bulaga should be ready well ahead of camp.

A second medical opinion confirmed Packers LT Bryan Bulaga will need surgery on his ACL tear and is done for the season.

Bulaga considered playing through the torn ACL like Logan Mankins two years ago. Doctors say that's not a good idea. Bulaga will undergo reconstructive surgery once the swelling goes down in his knee, and immediately begin rehab. ACL tears aren't nearly as worrisome as they once were, and offensive linemen tend to make especially smooth recoveries. It stinks Bulaga can't play this year, but he's likely going to be back and in great shape in 2014.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy isn't officially ruling LT Bryan Bulaga (torn ACL) out for the season until he gets a second opinion.

"Bryan is still hopeful of giving it a go," McCarthy said Tuesday. "Nothing has been finalized. He doesn’t even look like he’s injured." Although McCarthy's optimism is eyebrow raising, there's still every reason to believe Bulaga is done for the year.

The Packers confirmed Monday that LT Bryan Bulaga will miss the 2013 season with a torn ACL.

The Packers' initial, tentative plan is to move fourth-round rookie David Bakhtiari into the starting lineup, which is worrisome. At 6-foot-4 and 299 pounds, Bakhtiari is a squatty lineman many draft analysts projected to guard. He was a better run blocker than pass blocker at Colorado. It's unclear whether Bakhtiari will play right or left tackle at this time, but regardless pass protection has become a big fantasy concern for Aaron Rodgers. Bulaga remains under contract through 2014 and will almost certainly return as a starter next season.

A source tells that Packers LT Bryan Bulaga has a torn ACL in his knee.

Bulaga sustained the season-ending injury in Saturday night's intrasquad scrimmage. After making 33 starts at right tackle over the last three years, he was pegged as Aaron Rodgers' new blindside protector. The Packers will now have to move Marshall Newhouse back to the left side, and perhaps try fourth-round pick David Bakhtiari on the right. Newhouse started every game at left tackle last year, but struggled badly and graded out as ProFootballFocus' No. 54 overall tackle. It's not good news for Rodgers.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports LT Bryan Bulaga suffered a knee injury in Saturday's intrasquad scrimmage, and the Packers are "fearing the worst."

The injury initially seemed minor, until Bulaga approached medical staff reporting a "problem" with one of his knees. After exams, the Packers reportedly have "concern that the injury was a torn ligament and would turn out to be season-ending." Should Bulaga's injury prove as severe as feared, Green Bay's first option would likely involve turning back to Marshall Newhouse. Newhouse started the past two years on Aaron Rodgers' blindside, but consistently struggled and was benched this offseason in favor of Bulaga.
