Bryan Bulaga “felt good” in return to practice

Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga injured his ankle in practice toward the tail end of the preseason schedule and did not play in the team’s final two preseason games, but it doesn’t sound like the team will have to replace him in the lineup against the Seahawks this weekend.

Bulaga returned to practice for the first time since getting hurt on Wednesday and got in a limited session. Coach Mike McCarthy said that the plan is for Bulaga to do the same kind of work on Thursday.

“I thought he looked good,” McCarthy said, via the team’s website. “I know he felt good out there, so we’re going to go with the same approach today.”

Assuming all continues to go well, Bulaga will be on the field for the opener alongside his new partner on the right side Jahri Evans.

  1. With the starting 5 OL healthy, Seattle’s (and any defense actually) only chance to stop this passing attack will be to get to ARod in under 3 seconds consistently. And then there’s Ty, Bennett and Cobb underneath to worry about.

    pretty much the same defensive scheme controlled the game the last time the packers offense was on the field. And Seattle is much better than Atlanta.

  3. Going to be a great match up to start the season. Seattle wins it so long as they don’t let Green Bay start fast and get out to an early lead. Seattle needs to at least move the ball on early series – no 3 and outs, and come away with some early points. If Green Bay jumps out where Seattle is forced to go away from the run and play catch up then Seattle will have a much more difficult time.

    In the end, Seattle’s D is the difference and their offense is able to keep Rodgers off the field at the end of the 4th with Lacy running with extra motivation.

  4. Ahhh… Listen to the Vikings fans whine! You’re already down to rooting against GB because you know your team will be awful this year, aren’t you? Well, at least you know when to admit defeat and switch into defensive trolling. I’ll give that to you!

  5. Holy cow I did not know Jahri Evans was starting on the Packers OLine. Here I was thinking the Packers were just filing out their defense with rejects from other teams but I totally forgot they signed this relic last spring. Is he really starting?

  6. Have to laugh at the Barney fans trying to insult the Packer’s O-Line. How quickly they forget how terrible their O-Line was and is.

    GB starting line is very good but the backups looked suspect at best during the preseason. Need to stay healthy!

  7. As with most seasons in the last 25 years, I am optimistic that the Packers have just as good a shot as any team this year and a better shot than most. There are not many fan bases in any sport that are as lucky as me and my fellow Packers fans. Looking forward to a great season. Go Pack Go!

  8. Here’s the bottom line: The Packers are better than the Vikings and have been for the better part of a decade. Nothing I’ve seen tells me anything is going to change anytime soon. The Viking trolls know this to be true, but they still try to belittle the Packers in any manner they can…….because they know that’s all they can do. The Vikings give them nothing football-related to fight with. It’s the same from them every time a Packer story comes out. They amuse themselves only, and they need the attention.

    Seahawk fan here…..I have no clue how this game will shake out, but let me just say…..Hello football season and cheers to a great week 1 matchup!!!

    Agreed!
    Looking forward to a spirited matchup.
    A lot of people are hyping this game up as a preview of the NFC Championship Game (Sans Barney fans, of course).
    And it very well could be, which makes it all the more crucial to get off to a fast start.
    So, as a Packer fan, I will raise a glass and toast you, Jack.
    Real tackle football is back and it’s about time
