Green Bay Packers Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga has been recovering from from his 2017 ACL tear that ended his season and his recovery is said to have been “impressive”, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.
Buluga entered training camp on the roster bubble, as he was not considered a lock to earn a roster spot, but the 29-year old has been so impressive that he is no longer on the Packers’ roster bubble.
Bulaga is currently on the active/physically unable to perform list but is expected to be ready to go by Week 1 of the regular season.

Additionally, the Packers will be without running back Tra Carson, who will miss the remainder of the season as well.
King was limited to only 9 games last season before being shut down due to injury.
Disconnect Between Packers’ Aaron Rodgers and Mike McCarthy
There is a building disconnect between Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and head coach Mike McCarthy, in what is mostly a large separation on the offensive system, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.
Green Bay has been struggling this season and could end up missing the postseason for the second straight season, and Rapoport adds that McCarthy is certainly now on the hot seat for Green Bay. He needs to close strong, it feels like, to keep his job in Green Bay. Obviously, one of the longest-tenured coaches in the NFL and that is all in doubt.”
“And there’s a couple reasons why. One of them does involve the disconnect with Aaron Rodgers — the tension there regarding the direction of the offense. Rodgers has been pretty vocal about his frustration with play-calling and the lack of creativity was there on Thursday night. That, of course, is something [Packers] CEO Mark Murphy will have to make a big decision on at the end of the year.”
Packers Believe Jimmy Graham May Have Broken Thumb
The Green Bay Packers are bracing for news that tight end Jimmy Graham may be out of action for some time due to what they believe is a broken thumb suffered during Thurday night’s game against the Seattle Seahawks, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.
Graham, who signed a three-year, $30 million contract with Green Bay during the offseason, will undergo further testing on Friday. There is a possibility that Graham could play through the injury moving forward.
According to NFL Network insider Michael Silver, the Packers feared Graham suffered a “serious” thumb issue during the game.
Graham has caught 34 passes for 452 yards and two touchdowns this season.
