BBAO: Big night of news for Packers

By Kevin Seifert

We're Black and Blue All Over:

It looks like I picked a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good moment to turn over the majority of our Green Bay Packers coverage to new teammate Rob Demovsky. Two big stories broke Sunday night, one that provides some entertainment value but another that will have a deep impact on the team and the entire division.

As Demovsky wrote, the Packers will work out free agent quarterback Vince Young on Monday. There are no quarterback controversies in Green Bay as long as Aaron Rodgers is healthy, and it's not clear if the Packers are even seeking competition for backup Graham Harrell, but it's not often that the Packers even work out a veteran free agent of Young's prominence.

More important, however, the Packers might lose left tackle Bryan Bulaga to a significant injury, news that would cripple the offseason overhaul of their offensive line. As we noted earlier this summer, the entire effort of flipping both tackles and guards centered around getting their best possible option -- Bulaga -- at left tackle.

If Bulaga is in fact lost for a long period of time, we'll see if the Packers have a better option than returning deposed starter Marshall Newhouse to the position. At the moment, it doesn't appear that they do.
