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. Mar 25 - 2:10 PM

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.

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 ProFootballTalk.com 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.

Packers LT Bryan Bulaga says his fractured hip is "fine."

Bulaga went down in Week 9, but will be 100 percent for training camp. Making the switch from right tackle, Bulaga says he's "excited" to protect Aaron Rodgers' blindside. Manning the right side, Bulaga allowed just four sacks in nine games before going down last season.

The Packers are moving Bryan Bulaga from right tackle to left tackle this season.

That's not the only switch Green Bay is making along its five-man front. Josh Sitton and T.J. Lang are flipping guard spots with Sitton moving to the left side. Bulaga has never started a game on the blindside in his three-year career, and he struggled a bit in 2012. He gave up four sacks in nine games before a hip injury ended his season in Week 9. Incumbent left tackle Marshall Newhouse gave up a whopping 11 sacks last season, and he'll likely compete with a handful of other players for the right tackle gig.

Coach Mike McCarthy is considering moving Bryan Bulaga to left tackle next season.

The Packers are looking to upgrade on incumbent LT Marshall Newhouse, who allowed 11 sacks and struggled in the run game last season. He'll face competition from Derek Sherrod and possibly Bulaga, whom McCarthy graded out as an All-Pro right tackle before a year-ending Week 9 hip fracture. "I'll say this," McCarthy said. "We will be a better offensive line next year. You can write that down."

Packers RT Bryan Bulaga (hip fracture) insists he'll be ready for the start of training camp.

"I was a little bit worried before I actually got the results back," Bulaga said. "I saw the specialist, and he settled me down a little bit and told me, 'Yeah, you had a fracture in your hip, but it wasn't as serious as it could have been, that's for sure.'" The Packers should get 2011 first-round OT Derek Sherrod (broken leg) back this summer as well.

Packers placed RT Bryan Bulaga on injured reserve with a dislocated hip, ending his season.

LB Vic So'oto has been re-signed in a corresponding roster move. Bulaga was knocked out of Green Bay's Week 9 win with an injury that was initially described as a pointer, but got bad news during the Packers' bye week. The good news is he won't need surgery. Bulaga had yet to miss a snap this season before going down against the Cardinals. Bulaga graded out slightly below average in Pro Football Focus' ratings. LG T.J. Lang has been shifted to right tackle, with Evan Dietrich-Smith sliding in at left guard.

According to the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Packers RT Bryan Bulaga (hip) could miss several weeks "or even the rest of the season."

Bulaga has been sent for extra tests during the bye week, though we've yet to hear specifics on the injury. After going eight games without a starting lineman missing a snap, the Packers will now move LG T.J. Lang to tackle with Evan-Diedrich Smith at guard. Both players graded out well versus the Cardinals in Week 9.
