The Green Bay Packers got some great news on Wednesday as the team suited up for a padded practice to prepare for the season opening game against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Every player on the Packers’ 53-man roster was at least a limited participant in practice.
Perhaps most importantly, that group includes right tackle Bryan Bulaga. With a pair of excellent defensive ends in Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril facing them on Sunday, Bulaga’s availablility would be a huge boost to the offensive line as a whole. Furthermore, the struggles of second-year players Jason Spriggs and Kyle Murphy during training camp makes Bulaga’s ability to play even more crucial.
Joining Bulaga as limited were a trio of defensive players, including a pair of cornerbacks. However, all of the outside linebackers were fully participating, a good sign for the defense as a whole.
Here’s the full participation report:
- DT Montravius Adams (foot)
- OT Bryan Bulaga (ankle)
- CB Davon House (hamstring)
- CB Kevin King (groin)
- OLB Clay Matthews (groin)
- OLB Nick Perry (ankle)
The Seahawks, meanwhile, had a single player — linebacker Michael Wilhoite — held out of practice entirely. Two players were listed as limited for Seattle: defensive end Frank Clark and safety Delano Hill.
