Packers could be making a change at LT

The Packers are paying left tackle Chad Clifton $7.5 million this season. However, that may not deter them from bringing the veteran off the bench.

Clifton was replaced by first-round rookie Bryan Bulaga during the second quarter against the Bills Sunday. The plan all along has been for the young Iowa product to learn the ropes as Clifton’s backup. But Clifton allowed 1.5 sacks against Philadelphia in Week 1 and struggled mightily against Buffalo.

"He has an issue with his knee," Mike McCarthy said, according to Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "I felt that he just didn't look like he was fully recovered, so I thought it was important to get Bryan in there.

"He didn't look good today. He didn't look healthy. We'll assess it in the morning and set our plan for next week."

Offensive coordinator Joe Philbin believe Bulaga is capable of starting if need be. The Packers travel to Chicago next week in a battle of 2-0 NFC North foes.

Packers could be making a change at LT

Packers could be making change at LT. The only reason for the change is because Cliffy isn't healthy. As soon as Clifton's knees get better he'll get his starting spot back from Bulaga. Bulaga is more than capable to start at LT if Clifton should miss a bunch of time due to his injuries. Packers got a good LT of the future, can't say the same for other teams, thank you TT for giving us depth on the O-Line.
