Report: Green Bay Packers OT Don Barclay tears ACL in practice
According to the report, Barclay landed awkwardly on his right knee. Head coach Mike McCarthy addressed Barclay's situation:
"Donny, they don't come any better than him," McCarthy said. "He's exactly what you're looking for. If you want someone to emulate as a Green Bay Packer football players on and off the field, he's definitely one of your guys."
Barclay leaves big shoes to fill, as he started 14 games at right tackle last season in place of an injured Bryan Bulaga. Derek Sherrod will likely fill Barclay's role, with second-year guard Lane Taylor as the backup.
The West Virginia product was expecting to enter his third NFL season this year, all with the Packers.
