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.

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.

Packers RT Bryan Bulaga (knee) is active for Week 3 against the Lions.

It's a nice boost for the Pack, who were getting league worst right-tackle play in Bulaga's absence. Inactive for the Packers are QB Scott Tolzien, CB Demetri Goodson, LB Carl Bradford, LB Brad Jones, DT Mike Pennel and WR Jeff Janis.

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.

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.
Thu, Sep 4, 2014 10:10:00 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.

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.
