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.
