There’s good news and bad news for the Green Bay Packers on Friday’s injury report as they prepare for a game against the San Francisco 49ers. On the positive front, the team had every member of the 53-man roster practice at least on a limited basis. That includes the two players who were non-participants in Thursday’s practice: tight end Jimmy Graham and quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

However, the team saw a pair of players drop out of practice, a starter and backup at the same position: right tackle. The two are Bryan Bulaga, who was listed with a knee injury, and Jason Spriggs, who was reportedly carted off the field. Bulaga was not present during the portion of the practice where Packers media members were in attendance, but his listing as limited suggests that he started practice and was injured prior to the media portion.

Meanwhile, Spriggs’ injury is listed as an ankle. After practice offensive coordinator Joe Philbin said that it was “too early” to know the extent of either injury, but if neither player can suit up on Monday, that would put the Packers in a serious bind. In that case, Byron Bell would likely move out from right guard to right tackle, with Justin McCray — who was upgraded from limited on Thursday to full participation today — likely slotting back into the lineup at guard.

Keep a close eye on Saturday’s injury report for more updates on the Packers’ injured tackles.
