Bulaga May Return to Action Soon

After suffering a knee sprain in the Green Bay -- Seattle game,  right tackle Bryan Bulaga returned to light duty at practice yesterday.  Coach Mike McCarthy suggested that "there’s a little bit of a gap between how Bryan feels and how the medical department feels about him."  In other words, Bulaga wants back out on the field playing, but the staff will be careful about managing his injury.  McCarthy will see how Bulaga works out in the next few days.

In 2012 Bulaga suffered a season-ending hip injury that kept him out of the last seven games.  Hard to imagine how difficult it was for Bulaga when he tore his ACL in the 2013 preseason and lost the entire year.
