Packers injury report: Eddie Lacy and Bryan Bulaga practice Thursday

After practicing on Thursday, Packers running back Eddie Lacy and right tackle Bryan Bulaga appear much more likely to play against the Jets on Sunday.

It's too early to say for certain whether the Packers will have running back Eddie Lacy and right tackle Bryan Bulaga in tow for Sunday's game against the Jets, but the signs coming out of Green Bay are looking positive.

Both Lacy and Bulaga practiced in full pads on Thursday in what head coach Mike McCarthy described as the critical test for determining their availability this weekend. McCarthy had previously stated that Lacy was quickly progressing through the concussion protocol, and they were hopeful he could be cleared soon. Indeed, the coach confirmed that Lacy is good to go:

Bulaga's recovery from a knee sprain wasn't quite so clear, as the offensive tackle limped through Wednesday's practice. According to ESPN's Rob Demovsky, however, he moved much better today.

The injury news isn't so rosy for inside linebacker Brad Jones. As McCarthy hinted yesterday, Jones did not participate in Thursday's practice and will more than likely miss Sunday's game. That would mean Jamari Lattimore, who started four games last year while Jones was injured, would likely assume his spot at right inside linebacker in the base defense.

More will be known once the Packers release their official injury reports on Friday afternoon.
