The Green Bay Packers have their right tackle back. Bryan Bulaga passed his physical and was cleared to return to practice on Friday.
Packers RT Bryan Bulaga has remarkably been cleared and passed his physical. He will return to practice in a limited fashion today. Remarkable given that he tore his ACL on Nov. 6. That leaves only OLB Nick Perry (ankle) on PUP. https://t.co/Iory33UMq4
It was initially thought Bulaga may be sidelined until after the regular season started. Packers coach Mike McCarthy made the surprise announcement that Bulaga would return during camp, last week.
To say that Bulaga came back ahead of schedule would be an understatement.
His return will solidify an offensive line that would have ended up starting either Kyle Murphy or Jason Spriggs at right tackle. Now, the only uncertainty is right guard. It looks like that spot will go to Justin McCray, however.
