There was a clear sense that the news on Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga’s hip injury wasn’t going to be good.

The Packers made it official Monday, placing Bulaga on injured reserve and signing outside linebacker Vic So’oto to fill his roster spot.

Bulaga’s injury broke a streak of eight games without a Packers lineman missing a snap, now they’ll have to shuffle, perhaps moving left guard T.J. Lang to right tackle.

So’oto was in camp with the Packers, and gives them cover for Clay Matthews’ hamstring problem, after Nick Perry went on IR last week with a wrist injury.
