In recent years, the left tackle position hasn’t been boring for the Packers. Suddenly, it’s getting a lot more interesting.
Despite an offensive line featuring plenty of players with college experience at left tackle, the Packers can’t seem to find a perennial solution at the position. And this year’s first option could be gone before even before the first preseason game.
According to Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Bryan Bulaga suffered a knee injury during Saturday night’s scrimmage. Bulaga, who was walking after the intra-squad practice, reported a problem with the knee. On Sunday, the medical staff ran tests on the joint.
Per McGinn, the team is concerned that Bulaga has a season-ending ligament tear.
Bulaga reportedly sustained a “nasty fall” on the first series, but didn’t miss any of his 30 snaps during the scrimmage.
Previously a right tackle, the Packers moved Bulaga to the left side during the offseason, shifting Marshall Newhouse to the right side.
