07:10 AM ET 08.05 | No, it doesn't seem right to be talking about season-ending injuries so early, but the hard truth of life in the NFL rolls on. The Green Bay Packers were hoping for the best while fearing the worst Sunday on knee damage suffered by left tackle Bryan Bulaga. Sources said Bulaga was hurt at some point during the intra-squad scrimmage Saturday night at Lambeau Field. He was walking afterward and was seen in the middle of the team's huddle after the scrimmage. However, Bulaga reported a problem with one of his knees while in the locker room and received treatment. The players were off Sunday, when the medical staff continued to run tests in an attempt to determine the extent of the damage. Sources said the Packers had concern that the injury was a torn ligament and would turn out to be season-ending.

53 man rosters and 45 game day players are not enough. Injuries, concussions and the like. What other sport limits the roster on game days? Game day should be 53 eligible to play, your roster.

Packers offensive line is their Achilles Heel.

Poor Aaron Rodgers.

Or, maybe it's a little twisted knee and he'll be ready by Wednesday.

Get some facts before pushing out the story, OK?

They're holding that back until they get the 18 game season

Ah! You are most likely right. Did not consider that.

If the packers really want to compete again, they should fire the so called conditioning coaches. They had 16 people sit out the scrimmage the other night. Several of those with injuries that will go into the season. On day one of practice they had 7 people on the PUP list.

Ted Thompson is not the genius others think he is with his late round picks. Most of those guys were there because they had histories of injuries in college, were too small or too slow. When 31 other teams pass 6 times on someone and you get him, how much of a steal can that be.

The Pack is full of these guys and this year a lot of them are expected to play full time. Lots of luck. 6-10 season

You mean achiles heel like Derrick Sherrod who hasn't played in two years and wasn't all that good when he did play and hasn't come back yet or Marshall Newhouse who makes guys like Jared Allen look all universe, or EDS who is now a center but never really played that position before, or Datko who is 6-1 with short arms.
I have Rogers getting the big time season ending never ever being good again injury by game 2.

Wait until we get into relief QB 's. The guys who can give you a few series a game that you bring in during points of the game without sucking and try to take the load off (and avoid injuries) for your starting QB.

This guy got hurt last year as well. Starting to be a trend with him

QUOTE(#6):

When these guys got bigger and faster, the injuries increased as well. Another reason why I don't watch preseason games, or keep too close an eye on progress at football camps.

My attention span is about the same. Cut the preseason to three games.

Not good for an O-line that gave up 51 sacks last year...
