Report: Bulaga Suffered Serious Injury During Family Night Scrimmage

Report: Bulaga Suffered Serious Injury During Family Night Scrimmage

From Bob McGinn:

If Bulaga is out for an extended period of time, it will be interesting to see what the Packers do at tackle. The most likely course of action would be to move last year's starter at the position, Marshall Newhouse, back to the left side and let Don Barclay and rookie David Bakhtiari battle for the right tackle position.

Whatever the plan, McGinn's Tweet does not bode well for the presumed starter out of Iowa.

Kind of a vague tweet. And nobody noticed anything suspicious during Family Night?

You're right. McGinn is making it up.

I only meant it, in a "couldn't he be more specific" kind of way. Like, pinpoint when it might have happened? I just find it astonishing, that from what I read post-practise, nothing was mentioned of it.

Bulaga was slow to get up on one of the plays on the first drive. My initial thought was "oh s***" but he stayed in and I forgot about it until now.

Pardon the french but... FUCK ME!

First play I think he falls pretty hard but plays on. Hard to believe he suffered an ACL tear and continued to play so hopefully its something less than season ending.

Supposedly he played 30 snaps. If that's the case I can't see it being more than a partial tear. Can only hope.

Someone telling me why the heck the MJS is reporting that Bulaga. He got hurt in the first series and was seen walking gimpy. Why did you let you best tackle play after be showed signs he was hurt. If there is even a remote chance of the players are injury they should not go back out for a scrimmage or preseason game. Who is responsable for allowing him back in. Between all the bruises and players who need a week or two, then end up gone for the season, when is enough, enough. Harrell never recovered from his injuries, Williams shoulder, Collins neck, sherrods leg, Nelson's knee, perry hurt last year, the list keeps going. Sure I know there are tough breaks but the packers seem to really unlucky health wise.

Who's responsible for letting him back in? Well he never did leave... He got up a little slow and they said he had a minor limp. That kinda thing happens on just about every NFL play. The fact that he got up and walked to the huddle and kept playing lend you to believe it was nothing to worry about. You don't take out every player, every time he gets up slow.

Well, to be fair, Harrell was injured before he was even drafted by the Packers. Always injured in HS, college and the NFL.

My point is it was a scrimmage., not a game . Not even preseason. Do you all forget what happen to RG3? If there is any sign what do ever a player is hurt you should pull him. Sure I am all for manning up but there comes a point when enough is enough. Most nfl teams lose1 or 2 starters each year. The packers seem to lose 3-4 starters on each side of the ball ever year. Is it the players, the trainers, the medical staff, the scouts, the coaches. Me, i think it is the medical staff. We keep hearing a week or two and a player is done for a year. A bruise turns into an ACL, when is enough is enough. I no longer live in GB but I assure you that no other team is close to the packers and this miss diagonisious and a simple injury turning into season ending. Either the medical staff don't know what they are doing or packers are not being honest. You can decide, either way I just want to know the truth. If we are drafting players who are provided to be an injury waiting to happen the we need to change the scouting. If it is medical and/or training staff (please note medical and training staff are not the same. I am sure Pepper is not the one who is doing the surgery. If it is medical we need to move on. I just don't see all thr injuries in the teams I currently live near.

I wish bulaga all the best, couldn't happen to a better fan base though. Rodgers=human tackling dummy

This is brutal...just brutal. IMO they need to bring some new bodies in to make sure that line isn't a weakness this year.

You CANNOT afford to let your thoroughbred QB keep taking these beatings every year. He's not gonna hold up.

Nerd's picture

Getting REALLY sick of this injury bullshit.

This is why the Packer's should be some what active in free agency. To pick up quality veteran back ups and stop relying on rookie or 2nd year players.

If Bryan is going to miss significant time I will be significantly displeased.
Sorry for the salty language.

primetime's picture

Confirmed by the Press Gazette done for the year. Sorry Bryan good luck with your recovery.
And I said it without cussing.

I'd have to say that it makes the most sense to put Newhouse at LT and Bakhtiari at RT. The one combination I would be surprised to see is Newhouse at LT and Barclay at RT. I think Bakhtiari gets in the mix somewhere. If Barclay outplays Newhouse then Bakhtiari can go to LT.

Bulaga is like no. 3 in terms of someone you don't want to get injured. Matthews is no. 2 and Rodgers is no. 1. Good Lord, all I have to say is IT'S TIME DEREK SHERROD!! You were drafted to play left tackle three years ago. The Packers need you big time now!!

Put Sherrod at left tackle and put Bak at right tackle. I would be happy with that. I don't care if Sherrod is only 85%. He's still better than Newhouse at 100%. No more pussyfooting around. This ticks me off. Not even a single game and already a key guy to your season is finished. I swear we average one guy lost per game it seems. This sucks!!

Injuries are part of this sport we know and love. Remember we won a freaking SB with 16 players on IR. So I will never give up hope until Rodgers isn't playing under center. Our backs will help lower sacks on Rodgers. And Rodgers also needs to also help the line out by getting the ball out quicker like Manning and Brady. Injuries will happen. BUT NEXT MAN UP HAS TO BE THE MANTALITY!

BobBrews's picture

Bulaga was gone for the last 9 games last year. Barclay filled in and the Pack was stabilized enough to get in the playoffs for a (short) while. We have Barclay and rookie David Bakhtiari to fill in with a whole preseason to tweak their game. The light at the end of the tunnel has not gone out. It's just a little dimmer.

The timing of this injury provides enough time to evaluate every option. In addition to current players getting plenty of reps to serve as thorough evalutive auditions, other teams' cut - downs should offer someone who can provide depth. This injury will not derail the Pack's chances for success.
