After being evaluated, it was determined that Bulaga did not suffer a concussion in Sunday's NFC championship game against the Falcons, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Bulaga's forced exit from Sunday's game was one of many for the Packers. With the 2016 season now in the books for Green Bay, Bulaga will enter the offseason with a clean bill of health.
In an attempt to recover QB Aaron Rodgers' costly second half fumble Sunday, Bulaga dove for the ball but was nailed in the back as a scrum of players piled on top. He tried to continue playing but eventually left the game for good in the fourth quarter. However, while his head coach's words undoubtedly carry weight, the Packers are on a short week, and it may not be a realistic expectation for Bulaga to be ready by Thursday night. The severity of his injury remains unspecified, though, so it's hard to say for sure. If he is ultimately ruled out, rookie Jason Spriggs will get the starting nod.
Bulaga suffered a back injury in Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Bulaga was forced from the game in the second half and was unable to return. The Packers have been one of the strongest offensive lines in the league during the first six weeks of the season, and losing Bulaga would be a major blow to the Packers' pass blocking. Jason Spriggs or Kyle Murphy will likely take over at right tackle if Bulaga is forced to miss time.
