Grant, Bulaga Out for Sunday Against the Broncos

Grant, Bulaga Out for Sunday Against the Broncos

After not practicing on Friday, running back Ryan Grant and offensive lineman Bryan Bulaga have been ruled out for Sunday's Packers game against the Denver Broncos.

Grant has a bruised kidney while Bulaga is suffering from a knee injured during last week's Bears game. Head coach Mike McCarthy indicated the medical staff did not release them.

With Bulaga out, Marshall Newhouse will make his first career start at right tackle. McCarthy said if an injury were to occur to Clifton, rookie Derek Sherrod would fill in at left tackle.

McCarthy also said Alex Green will play on special teams against the Broncos but was non-committal about him getting playing time at running back indicating James Starks and John Kuhn would carry the load.

Linebacker Clay Matthews, who did not practice on Friday with a quad injury, is probable for Sunday's game. Cornerback Charles Woodson is also probable, though he did practice despite ankle and knee injuries.

Cornerback Pat Lee and linebackers Brad Jones and Jamari Lattimore are all questionable for Sunday with various ailments.

Left tackle Chad Clifton, who sat out of practice as he typically does on Fridays, is probable.

Finley's improved his blocking while Quarless and Crabtree have flashed dominance in their blocking this year. I have less anxiety about Newhouse and even Sherrod entering the mix when max pass-pro includes those folks plus Kuhn.

For all the fans visiting from Denver, I thought I would list some of the local attractions in Green Bay:
1 worlds biggest pair of pants
2 the amazing local that can read and write
3 worlds longest unemployment line
4 most mullets per capita
5 largest collection of unused soap

What they won't see? A billboard put up by fans who know nothing about football imploring their head coach to play the third string quarterback.

Graham Harrell is the Messiah!

Unfortunately, these are all redundant items found in Minnesota as well. Only they market it and have a formal tourist industry supporting it. As a St. Paul resident I can vouch. Tough to compete with a neighboring state that's perfected all of the above.

Oh, oh....just thought of one Wisconsin can add to that: World Champions. That is one way to differentiate itself from Minnesota.

CSS I can also vouch and have two words. St. Cloud.

Assuming Sherrod is active, I wonder if he gets any reps on special teams.

The backup offensive linemen typically play on the field goal and extra point protection units, but that's usually it because they're too slow for the coverage and blocking units.

Obviously would like everyone healthy, but I do think this will be very beneficial to Newhouse. Really can't replicate game experience in practice. Sure, there will be times that he struggles, but I think he can hold his own. Although, I am still traumatised buy the Allen Babre experience so I am always holding my breath everytime we have a new RT
