The hip injury Bryan Bulaga sustained against Arizona two weeks ago is going to cost the Green Bay Packers their starting right tackle for the rest of the season.

On Monday, the Packers placed Bulaga on injured reserve and re-signed linebacker Vic So'oto, who was on the team's roster all of last season, but was released off injured reserve on Sept. 25.

Bulaga suffered the injury two weeks ago against Arizona. Press-Gazette reporter Rob Demovsky is reporting the injury he sustained was a dislocated hip, but it's not believed it will require surgery, which is good news for Bulaga's long-term prognosis.

Without Bulaga, the Packers will turn to left guard T.J. Lang swinning out to tackle and reserve lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith moving to Lang's spot.

Instead of adding a lineman to fill Bulaga's void, the Packers opted to bring back So'oto, who was active in four games for Oakland this year before being given his release last week.
