Pre-Game Injury Report: Packers Host The Rams

The Green Bay Packers enter their game against the Rams in pretty good shape, but injuries on the offensive line, where three starters are listed on the injury report, and at safety are concerns.

RT Bryan Bulaga will return for his first game since injuring his knee against the Bears, but Mike McCarthy is discussing some sort of rotation at tackle and it's not clear who's going to start. LT Chad Clifton is out for a while with a severe hamstring injury, and starting RG Josh Sitton was also listed with an ankle injury but he practiced all week. There isn't a lot of depth on the line, so the news that their top backup Evan Dietrich-Smith is questionable (and unlikely to be available) with a foot injury leaves them with no one else except recent practice squad addition Ray Dominguez.

With S Nick Collins out for the season, depth at safety is going to be an issue. In addition, S Morgan Burnett broke his hand in practice on Thursday but expects to play through it with a club on his hand. The next option behind him is undrafted rookie S M.D. Jennings, so they are probably better off with an injured Burnett.

DE Mike Neal is out as usual as he recovers from knee surgery, but everyone else should be available, including LB Frank Zombo who could see his first action since breaking his broken shoulder blade during the preseason. 

The Rams injury list is short, and only two players are listed as questionable (50/50 chance), but their problems stem from the players on I.R. They have four defensive backs out for the season, and should struggle to keep up with the Packer receivers.

The injury report is from Packers.com, and the complete list is after the jump.
