GREEN BAY, Wis. - Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said on Tuesday that left tackle Bryan Bulaga is still waiting for a second medical opinion to come in before any decision is finalized on the Marian Central grad's status for this season.
Bulaga's father, Joe, told the Northwest Herald on Monday that Bulaga was seeking a second opinion from surgeon James Andrews on the knee, which the Packers diagnosed as a torn ACL, according to Joe Bulaga. He was injured on the seventh play of Saturday's Family Night practice at Lambeau Field.
"He's looking at all of his options," McCarthy said.
Bulaga returned from missing the end of last season with a left hip injury, rehabbed the hip in Green Bay all offseason and then came back only to get hurt again on Saturday.
"To see him put as much as he has into this," McCarthy said. "It makes me feel bad for him."
McCarthy added that he "can count on one hand" how many times Bulaga has left the field in the middle of a practice due to injury.
