Green Bay Packers offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga has been diagnosed with a torn MCL after injuring his knee against the Seattle Seahawks.
The Green Bay Packers were demolished by the Seattle Seahawks, 36-16, in the NFL season opener. The offensive line had its struggles, and their job was not made any easier as right tackle Bryan Bulaga went down with a knee injury.
This gave the Packers a reason to be scared, considering Bulaga’s extensive injury history. He missed the second half of the 2012 season with a fractured hip before missing the entire 2013 season with a torn ACL.
Despite the scare, Packers fans can breathe a sigh of relief since it has been revealed that Bulaga has only sprained his MCL. ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter says that it will not require Bulaga to miss too much time, according to his tweet.
Packers OT Bryan Bulaga tore his MCL in the Thursday night opener, per source. Undetermined how much time he might miss.

The Packers will need him to return quickly since his replacement, Derek Sherrod, struggled mightily as he allowed two sacks.
