Packers will juggle with Chad Clifton on the shelf

The Green Bay Packers have some juggling to do on the offensive line, and it’s too early to say exactly how it will shake out.

Left tackle Chad Clifton went out Sunday night in the team’s victory at Atlanta with what the team has called a “significant” injury to his right hamstring. According to Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, will be out weeks or months, and could potentially be lost for the remainder of the season.

It’ll probably take a couple weeks for us to get our hands around how significant the injury is,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. “That’s where we are with Chad. He’ll be out for a number of weeks.”

Bryan Bulaga, the first-round draft pick last year, remains out a few weeks as he recovers from a knee injury. That leaves the team with Marshall Newhouse, who has two career starts at right tackle, and Derek Sherrod, the first pick of the defending Super Bowl champions this season.

Against the Falcons, Newhouse moved from right tackle to left tackle and Sherrod filled in at right tackle. That would seem like the direction most likely for the club to take this week against the St. Louis Rams.
