Packers monitoring health of offensive line

The Green Bay Packers offensive line remained in flux Monday, based on what coach Mike McCarthy told reporters, but here is what we know at the moment:

  • Left tackle Chad Clifton has a significant hamstring injury that will take several weeks, at least to recover from.

  • Right tackle Bryan Bulaga, who has missed the past two games because of a knee injury, has a chance to play against the St. Louis Rams.

In short, we'll know more later this week. If Bulaga can play, the assumption is that he'll return as the right tackle with Marshall Newhouse playing left tackle. That's where Newhouse finished Sunday night's game against the Atlanta Falcons, while Derek Sherrod finished at right tackle.

Of course, Bulaga was drafted last year as a left tackle, and you know how the Packers like to shift their players around. So, stay tuned.
