Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that Packers RT Bryan Bulaga tore his ACL during Monday night’s game and is out for the season.
You can expect the Packers to place him on injured reserve in the coming days and add someone to their roster in the coming days.
“They seem very concerned about it,” McCarthy told reporters after the game.
The Packers finally had their starting offensive line back last night, and now it appears as though Bulaga could be done for the season if tests confirm the team’s fears. Justin McCray stepped in for Bulaga at right tackle after he left the game.
Bulaga, 28, is a former first-round pick of the Packers back in 2010. He’s currently in the third year of his five-year, $33.75 million contract and stands to make base salaries of $5.4 million and $5.85 million over the next two years of the agreement.
In 2017, Bulaga has appeared in five games for the Packers and is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 39 offensive tackle out of 78 qualifying players.
We’ll have more regarding Bulaga as the news is available.
