Bryan Bulaga returns to practice
Green Bay Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga was back at practice Wednesday, less than three weeks after undergoing knee surgery.
Bulaga has missed the last three games after suffering a sprained MCL and torn meniscus during an early practice period on Sept. 17. Reserve tackle Don Barclay has since started in his place.
While it’s not a guarantee Bulaga will play this Sunday against St. Louis, his participation in individual drills is a promising sign of his progress.
It's also ahead of the four-to-six-week time frame NFL Network reported for his recovery. Bulaga has a history of knee ailments, including when he missed the entire 2013 season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He sat out one game last season with a sprained MCL in the same knee, but otherwise started in the Packers’ other 17 contests.
Cornerback Demetri Goodson (hamstring) also returned to practice after missing two weeks with a strained hamstring. Starting safety Morgan Burnett (calf) and inside linebacker Jake Ryan (hamstring) attended practice, but neither has returned.
Receiver Davante Adams, who’s dealing with a sprained ankle, also didn’t practice. He said after Sunday’s 17-3 win over San Francisco his situation will be evaluated on a week-to-week basis, but reiterated his injury is not a high-ankle sprain.
