Bryan Bulaga awaiting medical opinion

Posted Aug 6, 2013

Jordy Nelson has knee procedure that ends his training camp

GREEN BAY—Mike McCarthy didn’t close the door on Bryan Bulaga’s season.

“We’re still waiting on a medical opinion. Bryan is still hopeful of giving it a go. Nothing has been finalized. He doesn’t even look like he’s injured,” McCarthy told reporters following the Packers’ Tuesday morning practice.

News reports on Monday claimed the Packers’ left tackle sustained a knee injury in Saturday night’s Family Night scrimmage, and that the injury would end his season. According to McCarthy, there is still hope Bulaga could play this season.

“We always do what’s in the best interest of the player. Bryan is fully aware of what it would take to play this season,” McCarthy said.

Meanwhile, wide receiver Jordy Nelson will not return to action in this training camp, the result of a knee injury he had been nursing through the first week of training camp.

“Jordy Nelson had a procedure done on his knee (on Monday),” McCarthy said. “He won’t be available for the rest of camp. We hope to have Jordy ready for the start of the season.”

In other injury news, tight end Ryan Taylor and running back Alex Green missed practice on Tuesday due to knee injuries. First-round draft pick Datone Jones was absent from practice due to illness.

Rookie fourth-round draft pick David Bakhtiari replaced Bulaga at left tackle in Tuesday’s practice. Marshall Newhouse remained at right tackle. Meanwhile, the experiment with Don Barclay at center appears to have ended.

“He’s very smart,” McCarthy said of Bakhtiari. “He’s had one error in all of training camp. I’m excited about his opportunity.”

“We know what those two guys can do,” McCarthy said of Barclay and Newhouse, who were the Packers’ right and left tackles respectively when last season ended.

“Our young players are going to factor into the makeup of our 53-man roster. Players have to step up and win jobs.”
