Packers May Be Close to Getting Some Help on Their O-Line

It looks like the Pack could be back to getting some of their offensive lineman back to try and keep QB Aaron Rodgers upright. Coach Mike McCarthy stated Wednesday that recently re-signed veteran right tackle Mark Tauscher could start Sunday’s game at Tampa Bay—his first action since a major knee injury last December.

Veteran left tackle Chad Clifton might be ready to return from a nagging ankle injury, too.

“No substitute for experience, and Mark Tauscher and Chad Clifton have a ton of it,” McCarthy said. “You see that just in the practice today, just some of the things that they do. Any time you add experience to your group, it’s definitely a benefit.”

Clifton and Tauscher both were active last Sunday but did not play against Minnesota. Instead, rookie T.J. Lang started in Clifton’s place at left tackle for the second straight game Sunday, and Allen Barbre made his seventh straight start at right tackle.
