It's looking more like Bryan Bulaga will miss his second straight game with a knee injury after not practicing for a second straight day, according to the Packers-Falcons injury report issued late Thursday afternoon. If Bulaga is unavailable to start, he will be replaced by Marshall Newhouse, who had a tough time handling Denver's Von Miller (two sacks) last week.

Also noteworthy was the full participation of veteran starting WR Donald Driver in Thursday's practice after sitting out the Wednesday practice entirely with a shin injury. Other Packers who did not participate Thursday were starting LOLB Clay Matthews (quadriceps), TE Andrew Quarless (knee) and starting CB Charles Woodson (foot/knee). But it would be a surprise if neither Matthews nor Woodson plays Sunday. RB Ryan Grant, who sat out last week's game with a kidney injury, participated fully in practice for a second straight day.

For the Falcons, star WR Roddy White (thigh) participated on a limited basis after sitting out Wednesday's practice, while starting C Todd McClure (knee) did not participate for a second straight day.
