According to a report at hubarkush.com, Bulaga's father confirmed Monday that the team fears his son tore his ACL during a weekend scrimmage and could be lost for the season. But Joe Bulaga also said they are seeking a second opinion from orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews.

"We're waiting to see what he has to say," Joe Bulaga said in the hubarkush.com report. "Bryan said it feels good and he was able to finish the drills (after the injury). Right now we're just sitting and waiting."

Bulaga, who was born in Barrington and played football at Marian Central in Woodstock, took all the first-team snaps at left tackle during the scrimmage and was also on the field-goal protection unit at the end of practice. Afterward, Bulaga reportedly told trainers one of his knees was bothering him.

Just three months ago, coach Mike McCarthy decided to shuffle the line, moving Bulaga, a fourth-year player from the University of Iowa, from right tackle to left tackle, Pro Bowl guard Josh Sitton from right guard to left guard, T.J. Lang from left guard to right guard and Marshall Newhouse from left tackle to right tackle.
