That escalated quickly.
Green Bay Packers starting right tackle Bryan Bulaga went from having a minor injury — a sprained MCL — to having a torn meniscus that required surgery in his left knee. Oh, and he still has the sprained MCL.
Bulaga had surgery on Saturday and is expected to miss six weeks.
Bulaga underwent surgery on Saturday to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Media’s Albert Breer, via two sources informed of the situation. Bulaga also sprained his MCL and is likely to be out the next six weeks, Rapoport and Breer reported.
Bulaga suffered the injury in practice on Thursday. He was quickly ruled out of Sunday’s game, but there was hope Bulaga would return in short order.
He suffered the same injury last year and missed only one game.
So, you better hope and pray Don Barclay has recovered sufficiently from his torn ACL. Barclay, who will start in Bulaga’s place, looked rusty early in training camp before seemingly getting it together the last couple weeks.
Barclay has 18 career starts.
