Bulaga Out

This injury is starting to become a recurring theme for Bulaga after he suffered the same knock in last year’s regular season opener against the Seahawks.

Bulaga only missed one-week thanks the twist last season. However, the timing of this injury, and the fact that it is a repeat, could make a quick recovery a tougher task this year.

Barclay In?

Mike McCarthy announced on Friday that Bulaga will not be able to play this week in a tough matchup against the Seahawks. McCarthy called it “unfortunate,” but said the team will “deal with it.”

The Packers coach didn’t formally announce who would be taking the starting place, but Don Barclay is the logical choice given his past experience in the starting lineup. Barclay made 18 starts in 2012 and 2013 before missing last season with a torn ACL.
