The Packers won’t have right tackle Bryan Bulaga against the Seahawks on Sunday night.
Bulaga sprained his MCL during practice on Thursday and coach Mike McCarthy announced on Friday that Bulaga will not be able to play this week. McCarthy called it “unfortunate,” but said the team will “deal with it.”
McCarthy didn’t formally announce a starter who would be taking Bulaga’s place, but Don Barclay is the logical choice given his past experience in the starting lineup. Barclay made 18 starts in 2012 and 2013 before missing last season with a torn ACL.
McCarthy said that Bulaga would continue to be evaluated and the team will have an extra day to see if he’s healthy before facing the Chiefs on Monday night in Week Three.
