The Green Bay Packers have some injury concerns along their offensive line with a reported ankle injury for former Iowa offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga. The Packers’ right tackle was the team’s first round choice just two years ago and has become a reason why the Packers are so effective in protecting Aaron Rodgers.
Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated is reporting that his ankle was rolled on against the Kansas City Chiefs today and that he was taken to the sidelines. The Packers brought in Derek Sherrod, this year’s first round choice, to take over at right tackle — the opposite position than he’s used to on the left side.
The Chiefs are taking advantage in the meantime with Derrick Johnson’s sack on third and short and Tamba Hali’s relentless work. It’s clear that KC’s pass rush is getting to the Packers.
Update: the word on Bulaga is that he’s been taken to the locker room and that he won’t be back any time soon.
