Packers' Burnett, Bulaga listed as probable to face Rams

Green Bay Packers safety Morgan Burnett expects to play in Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams after breaking his hand during Thursday's practice, according to the team's official website.

Burnett sat out practice Friday but was listed as probable by the team. He was also fitted for a cast that could limit his ability to defend passes.

"He clubbed (the hand) today," coach Mike McCarthy said. "Any time you have a broken bone in your hand, there's things you have to look at, but he feels and (team) doctor (Pat) McKenzie feels that he can potentially play with this."

McCarthy said right tackle Bryan Bulaga, who has missed the last two games with a knee injury, "looked to be moving well" during the team's padded practice Friday. The team will evaluate Bulaga Saturday, and he is listed as probable.

The Packers 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.

Wide receiver Greg Jennings (groin), linebacker Clay Matthews (quadricep) and cornerback Charles Woodson (foot, knee) all returned to practice and are also probable.
