Friday NFL Roundup: Packers Injuries Mounting & Ray Rice Fined

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga is expected to return for Sunday’s game against St. Louis after missing two games with a knee injury.

However, second-year safety Morgan Burnett broke his right hand in practice Thursday and didn’t participate in Friday’s workout. He is listed as probable for the game and expects to play, but he was fitted for a cast that could limit his ability to defend passes. Burnett is tied for the team lead with three interceptions.

The Packers (5-0) 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 (0-4).

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The NFL has fined Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice $7,500 for grabbing the facemask of St. Louis Rams cornerback Bradley Fletcher.

Rice plans to appeal. No penalty was called on the play.

It is not illegal to stiff-arm an opponent, but the league said offensive players are not allowed to grab an opponent’s facemask. Raven coach John Harbaugh says “he didn’t really see” whether Rice grabbed or twisted Fletcher’s facemask.

The play occurred in the Ravens’ 37-7 win over the Rams on Sept. 25.
