GREEN BAY - According to numerous reports, Packers offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga will miss the 2013 season due to an ACL injury.
Perhaps no player outside of Aaron Rodgers is as important to the Packers' offense as a good left tackle is, because he protects Rodgers' blind side.
This could be a major blow, or it could be an opportunity for a newcomer to step up and make a huge impact, and for Ted Thompson's brilliance as a general manager to shine.
How is Packers Nation reacting?
Check out a sample of these tweets, from media who cover the team to fans:
