Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga tore his ACL last November and didn’t take part in the team’s offseason program Kelvin Benjamin Jersey
, so there wasn’t anything out of the ordinary about the team’s decision to put him on the physically unable to perform list this week.
Given the timing of Bulaga’s injury and his overall injury history, some concern about his readiness for the start of the season might have been expected as well. That wasn’t the case when Packers coach Mike McCarthy spoke to the media on Thursday, however.
McCarthy said Bulaga “looks great” and didn’t express any doubt that Bulaga or linebacker Nick Perry, who is on PUP due to an ankle injury Jordan Poyer Jersey
, will be ready to go come the regular season.
“I don’t think there’s any threat that they’ll be ready for the season,” McCarthy said, via ESPN.com. “This is clearly a medical decision. There’s timelines and things you look at history-wise, with particular injuries. I think it’s more in tune with that. But I know both guys are champing to get out there in the full mode.”
McCarthy didn’t provide any timeline for when that might happen Adolphus Washington Jersey
, but they’re both eligible to get out there in the full mode at any point.
Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs is heading into the fourth and final year of his rookie contract, but he’s not sweating it.
Diggs said this morning on PFT Live that if his agents and the Vikings work out an extension, that’s fine, but it’s not his focus.
“This is a business and there’s a lot going on Landon Collins Jersey
,” Diggs said. “Being a small portion of it I’m definitely sitting back just working every day and letting that stuff handle itself. I have people who will handle that. For me, it’s just coming in and working every day. It’s not about any contract or anything like that, I’m trying to win. That’s all I’m concerned about.”
Diggs said he’ll only take two days off after the Vikings’ minicamp before jumping back into his own training regimen before the Vikings’ training camp opens on July 27. He’s focused on getting better, and his contract will come whenever it comes. Womens Ed Dickson Jersey
