RT Bulaga back as Packers form backup plan at LT



GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga has returned to practice after missing two games, giving Green Bay a glint of good news as it prepares for life without veteran left tackle Chad Clifton for the foreseeable future.

Bulaga was wearing a brace Wednesday on the left knee he injured at Chicago in Week 3.

Marshall Newhouse started at right tackle in Bulaga’s absence — then switched to left tackle during Sunday night’s game at Atlanta after Clifton hurt his hamstring. First-round rookie Derek Sherrod played right tackle.

It’s not clear if Bulaga will play Sunday against St. Louis.

The Packers also signed offensive lineman Ray Dominguez from the practice squad, finally placing safety Nick Collins on injured reserve after he sustained a season-ending neck injury in Week 2.
