Green Bay Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga returned to practice this week, according to Ryan Wood of Press-Gazette Media. Bulaga is back on the field less than three weeks removed from minor knee surgery.

The Packers could really use Bulaga back in the lineup. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was under a lot of pressure last week, as reserve right tackle Don Barclay struggled with San Francisco’s Aaron Lynch in Week 4. The 49ers ended up with three sacks and limited Green Bay’s typically high-scoring offense to just 17 points.

With the St. Louis Rams visiting Lambeau Field this weekend, the Packers need Bulaga now more than ever. The Rams have 17 sacks on the season (second most in NFL) and one of the most disruptive defensive lines in the entire league.

There has been no word yet on whether Bulaga will play this weekend.
