Packers without Grant, Bulaga in Week 4

BY foxsports • September 30, 2011

The Green Bay Packers say running back Ryan Grant and right tackle Bryan Bulaga won't play Sunday against the Denver Broncos.

The team ruled them out on Friday.

Bulaga suffered a sprain and bruise of his left knee in the first quarter of the Packers' 27-17 win at Chicago last weekend. Grant rushed for a season-high 92 yards against the Bears but bruised his kidney on a hit to his back.

Grant had been splitting carries in the first three games with James Starks, who will make the start Sunday. Marshall Newhouse, a second-year player, will make his first pro start as the replacement for Bulaga.
