- The Green Bay Packers didn’t just lose their game on Monday night, they lost their right tackle Bryan Bulaga for the remainder of the season, one of the best tackles in the NFL.
- Missing three and half games prior to this week, Bulaga didn’t appear to be himself despite returning from injury in Week7. In his limited action, he produced an overall grade of just 68.9 which ranks 39th among tackles and will go down as his lowest-graded season since his rookie year.
- The Packers will likely look to either Justin McCray or Ulrick John to fill the void at right tackle. Playing three different positions so far this season, McCray has earned an overall grade of just 38.3. While playing tackle, he has struggled in pass protection surrendering 12 pressures and three sacks on just 149 pass block snaps.
- Filling in for Bulaga in Week 6, Ulrick saw his only game action on the season producing a game grade of 38.0 and struggling in pass protection surrendering six total pressures including a sack on 25 pass block snaps.
