Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports that Packers RT Bryan Bulaga’s timetable for a return from knee surgery is likely four – six weeks
On Thursday, it was reported that Bulaga had a sprained MCL that did not require surgery, but it the Packers apparently discovered the meniscus tear after running more tests on his knee.
The good news for Green Bay is that Bulaga’s ACL is in tact, and he’ll be back at some point this season.
Thee Packers already announced that Bulaga wouldn’t be available for their Week 2 match up against the Seahawks.
The expectation right now is that Don Barclay will take over him in Sunday night’s game.
Bulaga was unable to finish Thursday’s practice and there was some obvious concern that he may have re-injured the same knee he blew out a few years ago.
Bulaga, 26, re-signed with the Packers, even though he reportedly had better offers from other teams.
In the end, Bulaga walked away with a five-year, $33.75 million contract that included an $8 million signing bonus. He’ll make base salaries of $1.25 million (2015), $950,000 (2016), $5.4 million (2017), $5.85 million (2018), 2019: $5.8 million (2019).
