Packers Injury Update: Bakthari and Bulaga sidelined again with injuries

New, comments

Who needs offensive tackles anyway?

NFL: Green Bay Packers at Denver Broncos Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Adding injury to more injury on Sunday, the Green Bay Packers have seen both of their starting offensive tackles leave the game against the Minnesota Vikings with injuries.

Bruan Bulaga suffered a concussion in the second half and has been ruled out of the game, while David Bakhtiari has been taken out of the game due to his hamstring injury flaring up. Bakhtiari is officially questionable to return.

This comes at the worst possible time, with Brett Hundley taking over for an injured Aaron Rodgers against a fearsome Vikings pass rush. Rodgers suffered a potentially season-ending broken collarbone. It was also the first game in which all of the Packers starters on the offensive line had been back on the field together, though left guard Lane Taylor left in the first half with an injury of his own.

This now leaves the Packers with a skeleton crew on the offensive line. Illustrating the problems is the fact that Ulrich John is currently in the game now at right tackle.
