Report: Packers’ Bryan Bulaga has strained MCL, avoids ACL tear

Friday September 18th, 2015

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.
