Bryan Bulaga has a torn ACL

The Packers expected bad news about right tackle Bryan Bulaga after Monday night’s knee injury and that’s just what they got on Tuesday.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that tests have confirmed that Bulaga tore his ACL during Green Bay’s loss to the Lions. Bulaga will miss the rest of the season as a result of the injury.

It’s a major blow to an offense that was already reeling after the loss of quarterback Aaron Rodgers to a broken collarbone a few weeks ago. Getting back on track offensively with Brett Hundley at the helm is going to be a difficult task and the Packers also have some defensive issues to sort out before they can resume thinking about any playoff hopes.

Justin McCray filled in for Bulaga on Monday and the team has designated Jason Spriggs for return from injured reserve.

  1. One of those years for the Packers. It sucks! Vikings had a bad injury year last season. As a Vikings fan you have my condolences. Wish every team could suit up their best lineup and go every week.

  2. “the team has designated Jason Spriggs for return from injured reserve.”

    I may be wrong, but I thought a team can only bring back one player from injured reserve. If so, Rodgers is done for the year.

  3. Well on our way to a high pick and easier schedule next year. All we need now is for someone to finally fire Dom Capers and the Packers are back on track next season!

  4. Where’s Stellar to tell us the Packers have more injuries than any other team, while ignoring the fact that the Vikings lost both their starting QB and most dynamic offensive player weeks ago?

  5. Sad part is, there doesn’t appear to be a premier T at the top of the draft.

    Looks like they’re going to have hit on another Cliffy or Bak type in the 2nd or 3rd round.

  6. Tough break but the O line wasn’t protecting all that well anyway. The bigger issue is the lack of a pass rush. In that regard Mike Daniels and Kenny Clark have not produced as was hoped.

  7. I remember this song last year for my team, every time you clicked on PFT another tackle was going on IR. It happens…

    ÷÷

    I was wrong. A new rule says you can bring back two players from IR.

  9. Dan LeBetard brought up a good point earlier today. He was saying that the Packers are so bereft of talent due to bad drafting, FA and coaching… if he was Rodgers he would want to go to a team that is more than 1 player deep.

  10. Pack it up Packers. Lets get some speed on D and gut big contracts and the front office as well. Trim the fat off this ageing roster and coaching staff.
    Tank for Arron!

    Go Pack GO…next year!

    **********

    You are half right.

    You will be picking near the top of the draft.

    As to the easier schedule, not necessarily.

    All division teams play each other twice. Eight more games they all play the same opponents.

    Hat leaves two games. Those two games are against teams that finished in the same position as your team did the year before.

    Last year the Packers finished on top of the division.

    Theoretically, that would mean that the Packers would be playing two really easy games.

    But just like the Packers being an easy win for most teams right now, a team that sucked last year just might be one of the best.

  12. By all appearances, Bulaga is a really good guy, and has played some really good football. The evidence of offensive line injuries across the league is overwhelming; the human body is not meant to carry 325 pounds and absorb repetitive impact from other big guys. Bulaga now has a long history of knee and ankle damage, being –hurt almost every year and due to make $6.75 million in 2018. Thanks Bryan for a fine career and putting your body on the line for the Green Bay Packers. Get healthy and have a great rest of your life. See you in the Packer Hall of Fame in a few years.

    Packers continue to suffer major injuries and it may cost them a playoff spot unless Hundley and the packers defense steps up in a big way!!

    Playoffs? PLAYOFFS?! We’ll be lucky to win another game!

    Fake News.

  15. I don’t know why the packers are doing so bad. They have 13 championships that can suit up and play. Don’t packer fans say that those 13 championships have a bearing on every season?

    Suit them up. They are so important to this season.

  16. Bulaga now has a long history of knee and ankle damage, being –hurt almost every year and due to make $6.75 million in 2018. Thanks Bryan for a fine career and putting your body on the line for the Green Bay Packers. Get healthy and have a great rest of your life. See you in the Packer Hall of Fame in a few years.

    I won’t be upset if they move on.

    But the injury history is slightly exaggerated here. (not singling you out specifically!)

    Bull started 55 of the last 63 Packers games since 2014, including all 7 Playoff games.

  17. Dan LeBetard brought up a good point earlier today. He was saying that the Packers are so bereft of talent due to bad drafting, FA and coaching… if he was Rodgers he would want to go to a team that is more than 1 player deep.
    ======

    No guarantee that injury will allow him to get back to 100%.

    May not want to be a part of a rebuild, whether major or minor.

    I won’t be surprised if we’ve seen that last of Rodgers as a Packer.

    Don’t you know a blowhard when you hear one? The majority of these guys are just “acts” who say controversial things to get attention. LeBetard is in the class of Jim Rome, etc. Even Tiki Barber is now doing radio commentaries to goose up some controversy.
    I’m still waiting for LeBetard to comment on all the questionable characters his U of Miami has turned out.

    ——————————————————————
    This should make for a viral youtube video. Should be at least as entertaining as watching the Packers defense.

  20. Well, that’s it.
    This is the “things making sense” part aaron stated for this season’s comeback after his recovery.

  21. Pack up your bag. This guy is made out of cheese who can’t stay on the field. Pack go pack is the best packers fans can come up with? Sounds corny. While Vikings horn is blowing loud in packers ears which they can’t stand. Sun rises in the East but ends in the West.

    I’ll be looking forward to seeing it on YouTube.

  23. Vikings went 8-8 last year losing their starting QB, and both tackles, and their replacements, in the first few weeks, not to mention Adrian Peterson.

    Let’s see how the Packers do. 8-8 looks pretty optimistic.

    Oh, and by the way, the Vikings lost their starting QB this year too.

    Where are all those Packers fans saying their team is more than just Aaron Rodgers?

  24. if the packers win another game this season, I’ll eat my shorts!!

    Well, they do still have to play the Browns, so fire up the grill and get ready to slather on some sauce!

    But yeah, the flame of hope for a wide card is all but dead now after the past three games.

    But they gotta make it to the wild card if only to avoid having to do Hard Knocks!

  25. Life long Vikes fan but that just sucks. I hate seeing any player suffer a season ending injury including Rodgers. I might be a Packer Hater but I respect talented players and it’s nothing to cheer about when they go down. At least for me

  26. My god people, I see all the “oh poor guy this, poor guy that” comments you wanna feel bad or someone….feel bad for the families in Texas or Roy Halladay’s family. This nonsense about oh man I feel bad for this guy because he has a torn ACL? or a broken collarbone?
    Come on people wake up…….

  27. Yeah, the Vikings lost their starting QB this year too, but he wasn’t even a top twelve QB by anyone’s measure. Not the same kind of loss. It is bizarre how nasty and ugly Vikings fans are; their jealousy of the Packers has made them insane.
