Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga does not have a torn ACL as the team feared when he was injured in practice on Thursday, but only a strain in his MCL, ESPN’s Rob Demovsky reports.
Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga strained his MCL in practice on Thursday, ESPN’s Rob Demovsky reports.
The team initially feared that Bulaga had a torn ACL.
The six-year veteran has sustained several injuries to his left knee during his career, missing all of the 2013 season after tearing his ACL, and missing a game in 2014 with a sprained MCL in the same leg.
Bulaga will undergo additional testing on Friday to assess the severity of the injury, according to ESPN.
The offensive lineman signed a new five-year deal with the Packers worth $33.75 million after the 2014 season, and is expected to be replaced by Don Barclay or Josh Walker for Green Bay’s Sunday night contest against the Seahawks.
