The Green Bay Packers may be forced to shuffle their renovated offensive line after starting left tackle Bryan Bulaga reportedly suffered a season-ending knee injury during a weekend scrimmage.
Just three months ago, Coach Mike McCarthy moved Bulaga 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, who started 28 games the past two seasons at left tackle, to right tackle.
But Bulaga reportedly tore an ACL and will miss the season. The Packers canceled practice Monday and no one from the team was available to comment.
Green Bay also reportedly signed veteran quarterback Vince Young to a one-year deal on Monday.
●RAVENS: Tight end Ed Dickson has a slight tear in his hamstring and will be sidelined for at least a week. Coach John Harbaugh said that Dickson is expected back by the first week of the regular season.
The Ravens are already thin at the position after losing Dennis Pitta to a season-ending hip injury earlier in training camp.
Dickson had just 21 catches last year, but he had 54 catches in 2011.
●SAINTS: New Orleans has gotten its top wide receiver back on the field and signed two other wideouts.
Marques Colston returned from the physically unable to perform list (foot injury), and the Saints signed six-year NFL veteran Steve Breaston and re-signed rookie free agent Brent Leonard. Breaston has 255 career receptions with the Cardinals and Chiefs.
●COLTS: Indianapolis does not believe wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey’s sprained left knee will keep him out long, though the team has not put a time on the ex-Maryland star’s return. The team also announced it put ●linebacker Monte Simmons on waivers.
●BRONCOS: Joel Dreessen, Denver’s best blocking tight end, underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and is expected to miss the remainder of camp.
Also, right tackle Orlando Franklin limped off the field during practice with an injured hip and did not return.
●LIONS: Detroit released wide receiver Devin Thomas and linebacker Alex Elkins and signed defensive back Brandon King. Thomas was a second-round pick by the Redskins in 2008.
●JAGUARS: Jacksonville waived wide receiver Taylor Price and guard Stephane Milhim.
