Mike McCarthy: Packers “very concerned” about Bryan Bulaga injury

The reunion of the Green Bay Packers starting offensive line was brief Monday night as Bryan Bulaga left the game with a knee injury in the fourth quarter.

Bulaga was carted to the locker room after being injured with 11:30 remaining in the game. Bulaga was engaged in a block with Lions defensive end Anthony Zettel when his right knee buckled. He was later carted to the locker room and immediately ruled out for the remainder of the game.

“I haven’t talked to Dr. (Patrick) McKenzie yet but they seemed very concerned about it,” head coach Mike McCarthy said.

The Packers starting unit had played just 15 snaps together this season due to injuries across their line. The return of Lane Taylor to the line Monday night reunited the group for the first time since Week 6. However, Bulaga’s injury could ensure it’s the last time the group is together this year.

Bulaga was replaced by Justin McCray at right tackle for the remainder of the game.

    Not sure why he is concerned.

    Without Rodgers they can’t win. So the other players really don’t matter.

    Now how does it feel? Packer Trolls have tormented Vikings fans for years with your chest thumping on our stories. It makes you HAVE to appreciate how superb of a job Spielman and Coach Zimmer have done fielding a competitive team using a Backup quality QB for a few years
    Imagine us WITH a guy like Rodgers!

    Teddy is better than most backups but he is no Rodgers, on the other hand with 2 broken throwing shoulder breaks, ESPECIALLY this last one! It wasn’t just a break but SHATTERED. Aaron will sadly never be quite the same again, he will be one more sack or landing wrong from retirement. I have had that exact same surgery and can guarantee you first hand, his strength will never be the same again, and it will always be sore and fragile. I got mine in an Automobile wreck.
    Ted had better be making a move in the Draft to prepare for life without/diminished skills for Rodgers.
