After missing three weeks with a left knee injury, Green Bay Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga returned to the field on Sunday against the St. Louis Rams at Lambeau Field.

Bulaga has not played since the Packers' opener at the Chicago Bears. He reportedly had a sprained MCL and surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee, an injury that happened during practice Sept. 17.

Entering Sunday, Bulaga was listed as questionable on the Packers' injury report. He returned to the practice field Wednesday and also participated in the team's padded practice the next day. His return could provide a needed boost for an offensive line that will face one of the NFL's best defensive lines after struggling in pass protection last week. Don Barclay, serving as Bulaga's backup, allowed three sacks last Sunday at the San Francisco 49ers.

Receiver Davante Adams and safety Morgan Burnett headline the Packers' seven inactives. Both were listed as doubtful after being unable to practice this week. Adams has missed most of the past three games with an ankle injury. For Burnett, it's the fourth time in five games a calf injury has kept him inactive.

The Packers' other inactives are safety Sean Richardson, quarterback Brett Hundley, cornerback LaDarius Gunter, inside linebacker Jake Ryan and guard Lane Taylor.

Richardson was listed as out of today's game on the team's injury report with a neck injury so severe it's expected to threaten the fourth-year veteran's career.

Here are the Rams' inactives: quarterback Sean Mannion, safety Maurice Alexander, linebacker Alec Ogletree, linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar, tackle Darrell Williams, guard Cody Wichmann and defensive lineman Ethan Westbrooks.
