Packers’ Clifton will likely sit next two games

Green Bay Packers left tackle Chad Clifton will likely miss the next two games with a sprained left ankle.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said it will be at least a couple weeks before he is able to return from the injury.

“Chad’s going to be (out) a couple weeks,” McCarthy said. “I would say he definitely won’t be available this week or next week. So that’s something we’ll revisit after the (Week 5) bye.” 

Clifton was hurt on Green Bay’s first offensive play in the third quarter of this past Sunday’s game against Cincinnati.

The Packers were forced to shuffle their offensive line during the game against the Bengals. Left guard Daryn Colledge shifted over to tackle and center Jason Spitz moved to guard, forcing Scott Wells to take over at center.

Cincinnati registered six sacks against Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers on Sunday, five by Antwan Odom.
