Packers LT Clifton will miss at least two games with ankle injury

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers left tackle Chad Clifton is expected to miss at least two games because of a right ankle injury, coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday.

The veteran offensive lineman left early in the third quarter of last Sunday's 31-24 home loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Daryn Colledge, normally the Packers' starting left guard, struggled in Clifton's absence.

Colledge is expected to start Sunday's game in St. Louis, with Jason Spitz shifting from center to left guard and Scott Wells coming off the bench to play center against the Rams.
