03:42 PM ET 11.12 | Green Bay Packers offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga will be placed on injured reserve and miss the rest of the season after sustaining a hip injury in Week 9 against the Arizona Cardinals. Bulaga was replaced in Week 9 by T.J. Lang, who slid over from left guard to right tackle. The empty left guard position was then filled by backup lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith. Bulaga was selected in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers, and as a rookie, started 12 regular season games and four postseason games for the eventual Super Bowl Champions. He started 13 games for the Packers last season and all nine games this season before the injury.

This is a tough blow fo Green Bay as Bulaga is one of the better young OT's in the NFL.

I read they are not sure the seriousness of his injury. They are hoping it will heal on its own so I'm guessing a small break? IF he needs hip surgery I have no idea if you can recover from that to play again. Not sure if I've ever heard or seen anyone coming back. Hope that's not the case, this is a great kid.
