House 'hard pressed' to play Sunday; Bulaga in concussion protocol
Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy doesn't expect cornerback Davon House to play this week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers because of a shoulder injury.
House was inactive Sunday against the Buffalo Bills with an injury he suffered the previous Monday night against the Atlanta Falcons. The backup corner finished the Packers' win over the Falcons, but he hasn't practiced since.
"I think he would be very hard pressed to make it this week," McCarthy said Monday. "I'm told he's made a lot of progress. We'll see where he is."
McCarthy said right tackle Bryan Bulaga is going through concussion protocol this week. Bulaga left in the second half Sunday and was being evaluated for a concussion.
Bulaga was playing well before exiting the game early, holding his own in a tough matchup against Bills defensive end Mario Williams. Buffalo leads the NFL with 49 sacks, but it only had one against Green Bay.
"It's a credit to everybody," rookie center Corey Linsley said. "Bryan probably had the game of his life on a guy that was a No. 1 overall pick and has hundreds of accolades or whatever. That's a testament to him."
