Packers OT Bulaga questionable vs. Lions
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Friday that right tackle Bryan Bulaga is progressing well and is listed as questionable for the teams’ NFC Matchup against the Detroit lions, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Bulaga suffered a knee injury in the Packers’ season-opening loss at Seattle and didn’t play against the New York Jets last Sunday.
As he did last week, Bulaga practiced on a limited basis Wednesday and Thursday this week. He looked to be moving around better with a protective brace on his injured left knee.
But McCarthy added Bulaga would have to get through the team’s entire workout Saturday to have a chance to play against the Lions. Former first-round draft pick Derek Sherrod made his first NFL start as Bulaga’s replacement against the Jets.
Also on the injury front for the Packers, starting safety Micah Hyde (knee) is probable for Sunday, while inside linebacker Brad Jones (quad) has been ruled out for the second straight game. Jamari Lattimore will again start in place of Jones on Sunday. (Photo: Benny Sieu/USA TODAY Sports)
