SEATTLE — Green Bay’s offensive line took another hit with right tackle Bryan Bulaga leaving in the second quarter with a left knee injury.

The Packers announced that Bulaga was questionable to return. Green Bay was playing without center J.C. Tretter and had rookie Corey Linsley starting in his first NFL game.

Bulaga was injured early in the second quarter on Eddie Lacy’s 3-yard run. Bulaga was down on the field for several minutes before limping to the sideline, where his left knee was examined. He later was taken to the locker room. Derek Sherrod replaced Bulaga.

Tight end Richard Rodgers, hurt on the same play as Bulaga, suffered a neck injury and his return was questionable.
