Here's a look at a key matchup heading into Green Bay’s Week Five game in Washington against the Redskins.

Packers ORT Mark Tauscher or Bryan Bulaga vs. Redskins DLEs Adam Carriker and Phillip Daniels

With Tauscher looking very questionable for the Redskins game after being held out of the Thursday practice because of a shoulder injury suffered in the Week Four win over Detroit, the odds are turning toward Bulaga replacing him as the starting right tackle this Sunday in Washington. Bulaga did not play on the right side at all in training camp, but the Packers’ first-round pick has been putting some time in on the right side since the season started. Bulaga has held his own for the most part at whatever position he has played.

Carriker was a first-round bust of major proportions with the Rams, where he played under Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett, though he seems to be a better fit in the Redskins' 3-4 scheme. Daniels is a savvy 15-year veteran who no longer has much speed off the edge but is tough and has excellent strength.
