Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Bryan Bulaga doubtful vs. Falcons

Bryan Bulaga, Packers

Three of the Green Bay Packers’ starting offensive linemen are listed on the team’s injury report. One of them is offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga. He is currently listed as doubtful for their team’s Week 14 showdown against the Atlanta Falcons.

According to Darrin Gantt of NBC Sports, the 29-year-old is unsure on whether he can play because of a knee injury. Bulaga suffered that setback last week against the Arizona Cardinals.

As a result, Aaron Rodgers will have a new look offensive line aside from having a new head coach.

Bulaga played the team’s first 12 games before suffering this injury. He also did not take part in the team’s practice sessions this week due to illness.

The Packers are having a terrible season with a 4-7-1 record. They are set to miss the playoffs for the second consecutive season as their chances begin to wind down with the regular season already approaching its conclusion.

The disastrous run led to the firing of head coach Mike McCarthy, and a new play-caller will take charge for the team, Joe Philbin.

The 6-foot-6 tackle is currently one of the longest-tenured current NFL players on their team. He was picked by the Packers way back in the 2010 NFL draft and has been the team’s stable blocker from that point on.

In his rookie year in 2010, Bulaga managed to help the Packers in their championship run. They won Super Bowl 45 against the Pittsburgh Steelers in February 2011. Also in that game, Bulaga became the youngest starter in Super Bowl history at 21 years and 322 days.
