Packers safety Burnett has broken hand

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga is expected to return for Sunday's game against St. Louis after missing two games with a knee injury.

However, second-year safety Morgan Burnett broke his right hand in practice Thursday and didn't participate in Friday's workout. He is listed as probable for the game and expects to play, but he was fitted for a cast that could limit his ability to defend passes. Burnett is tied for the team lead with three interceptions.

The Packers (5-0) will be without veteran left tackle Chad Clifton for an indefinite period because of a hamstring injury. Marshall Newhouse, who replaced Bulaga in the starting lineup, is expected to take over for Clifton against the Rams (0-4).
