Packers rookie Raji misses second straight game with ankle injury

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- First-round draft pick B.J. Raji's regular-season debut will be delayed another week after the Packers made the defensive lineman inactive for their home game against Cincinnati.

Left guard Nate Livings (knee) was inactive for Cincinnati on Sunday and will be replaced in the starting lineup by Evan Mathis. First-round draft pick Andre Smith (foot) also was inactive for Cincinnati.

Raji injured his ankle in the Packers' final preseason game and missed their season-opening victory against Chicago last Sunday. He was taken with the ninth overall pick out of Boston College.
