Packers RT Bryan Bulaga (knee) is expected to return Week 5 against the Rams.

Bulaga absolutely sped through his recovery from a sprained MCL and torn meniscus suffered in Week 2. He was initially expected to miss six weeks. Asked if Bulaga would play Sunday, coach Mike McCarthy said, "So far, so good. Yes." Don Barclay will head back to the bench. Even against a stout Rams pass defense, the Packers' passing game should keep on rolling back at Lambeau Field.
Oct 9 - 12:02 PM

NFL Network's Albert Breer reports Packers RT Bryan Bulaga had meniscus surgery in addition to his sprained MCL and is expected to miss six weeks.

The Packers originally hoped Bulaga was only dealing with a sprain. His loss is a pass-protection downgrade, leaving Aaron Rodgers without his top offensive lineman. Bulaga's timetable puts him on track to return in Week 8 following the Packers bye. Don Barclay will hold down right tackle in his place.
Sep 19 - 4:35 PM

Packers RT Bryan Bulaga (knee) has officially been ruled out for Week 2 against the Seahawks.

He's battling a sprained MCL. It's a tough game for Bulaga to miss against a Seahawks defense with so much pass-rush juice. Don Barclay is expected to get the start in Bulaga's place. Barclay missed 2014 with a torn ACL.
Sep 18 - 10:29 AM

Packers RT Bryan Bulaga has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL, but does not need surgery.

Bulaga suffered the same injury last September, but ended up missing only one game. That figures to be the minimum this time around, as there's no way Bulaga will be ready for Sunday's showdown with the Seahawks. Week 4 could be Bulaga's most realistic return date. Don Barclay will start in his absence.
Sep 17 - 8:40 PM

Packers RT Bryan Bulaga suffered a knee injury at Thursday's practice.

It's believed to be his left knee, which is the same one he blew out in 2013. Bulaga's status is up in the air for Sunday's primetime game against the Seahawks. If Bulaga can't suit up, Don Barclay would likely draw the start in his place.
Sep 17 - 4:55 PM

Packers RT Bryan Bulaga suffered an ankle injury in Saturday's preseason game.

The injury isn't considered serious, but it's a concern for an offense that's already lost Jordy Nelson. Bulaga should be considered day to day.
Aug 29 - 10:55 PM

Packers re-signed RT Bryan Bulaga to a five-year, $33.75 million contract.

The Packers upped their offer at the 11th hour and were able to keep Bulaga from reaching the market, where he was certain to command more money as the top free-agent tackle. The soon-to-be 26-year-old was Pro Football Focus' No. 4 right tackle last season, excelling as a pass blocker. After taking care of Randall Cobb over the weekend, Green Bay was allowed to focus on Bulaga. The Packers will return one of the NFL's elite offensive lines and skill-position corps.
Mar 10 - 2:03 PM

The Packers are "closing in on a deal" with RT Bryan Bulaga, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Green Bay is hoping to have a deal in place before Tuesday's 4 p.m. deadline. The Packers reportedly upped their offer to over $6 million a year, which is still substantially less than he would have received on the open market. Rather than explore free agents, Green Bay seems focused on keeping its core together. Aside from the Packers, Bulaga was also drawing interest from Buffalo.
Mar 10 - 12:18 PM

The Bills have shown interest in free agent RT Bryan Bulaga.

They're also looking into Mike Iupati. Buffalo's offensive line woes are well-documented and with just over $25 million left in cap room, the Bills still have enough cash to land a top-flight free agent. Bulaga certainly fits the bill. We have him rated as the No. 1 tackle available in free agency. Bulaga is hoping to net annual earnings of close to $8 million.
Mar 9 - 1:19 PM

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports the Jaguars, Redskins, and Bucs are interested in free agent RT Bryan Bulaga.

Bulaga, 26 later this month, can play both tackle spots, but would man the right side for each of the three teams listed above. He's said to be seeking $7-8 million per year, a price the Packers seem unwilling to pay after locking up Randall Cobb on Saturday. Bulaga is the No. 1 tackle available in free agency.
Mar 8 - 9:16 AM

Free agent RT Bryan Bulaga is seeking $7.5 million to $8 million per year.

A source told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel the Packers have set Bulaga's price at $7 million annually and are prepared to let him walk if he doesn't accept. Green Bay's fallback option is Don Barclay. Bulaga's market value increased on Saturday, when the Texans and Cowboys locked up Derek Newton ($5.3 million annually) and Doug Free ($5 million), respectively. Bulaga is the top tackle and arguably the No. 2 offensive lineman left in free agency, behind only Mike Iupati.
Mar 7 - 11:51 PM

Packers coach Mike McCarthy "definitely" wants to re-sign free agent RT Bryan Bulaga.

McCarthy added "I know Bryan wants to be back." Aaron Rodgers is already on the record as saying re-signing his right tackle should be a priority. Bulaga is Rotoworld's No. 1 free agent tackle.
Feb 19 - 3:29 PM

Aaron Rodgers said re-signing free agent RT Bryan Bulaga should be a high priority.

Bulaga, the No. 23 overall pick in 2010, finally got healthy in 2014 and shined. He started 17 games (including playoffs), excelling as a pass blocker for Rodgers. Bulaga, our No. 1 tackle available in free agency and just 25 years old, will not be cheap.
Jan 26 - 11:07 AM

Packers RT Bryan Bulaga (concussion) has been upgraded to probable for Week 16 against the Buccaneers.

This likely means Bulaga has passed the final hurdle in the NFL's concussion protocol. He will start against Tampa Bay.
