Green Bay Packers starting right tackle Bryan Bulaga was placed on injured reserve on Monday with a hip injury, ending his season, the team announced.

Bulaga started the first nine games at right tackle this season and did not miss a snap before being injured in Green Bay's 31-17 victory over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 9. The injury was first diagnosed as a hip pointer and Bulaga will not need surgery on the hip.

Bulaga, 23, is in his third season with the team after being drafted 23rd overall in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft.
