GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers have three starting offensive linemen on the injury report for their game Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons, with right tackle Bryan Bulaga listed as doubtful to play.
Bulaga left last week's loss to the Arizona Cardinals with a knee injury. He has also missed practice this week because of illness. Third-year pro Jason Spriggs would likely start get the start.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — For a change, it was the Packers in a runaway.
Aaron Jones ran for career highs of 145 yards and two scores, Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams connected for two touchdown passes and the Green Bay beat the Miami Dolphins 31-12 on Sunday.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers will be without receivers Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison against the San Francisco 49ers because of hamstring injuries.
It's the second straight week that the Packers will be without Cobb and Allison. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers will have to rely again on rookies Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown behind top wideout Davante Adams.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — A ride on a golf cart during an offseason trip to the Dominican Republic changed the course of Bashaud Breeland's NFL career.
The cornerback's left foot was hanging out of the cart during that March trip when it was bumped by another cart that clipped Breeland's foot. An old wound that Breeland suffered in fourth grade reopened.

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — The Washington Redskins have signed cornerback Quinton Dunbar to a multiyear deal.
The team announced the contract Monday after finishing its season at 7-9. Dunbar was set to be a restricted free agent.
Dunbar, 25, was a receiver at Florida and converted to cornerback during his first NFL training camp in 2015. He reached career highs with 15 games, four starts, 28 tackles and eight passes defensed this season.
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Informed that one calculation gives his Washington Redskins a 1 percent chance of making the playoffs, cornerback Bashaud Breeland opted to take a rose-colored view of the situation.
"So we still have something we can play for," Breeland said after an abbreviated practice Monday. "It's not all the way out of our grasp."
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — No matter how many injuries they accumulate, no matter how slender their playoff hopes might be, the Washington Redskins at least have this on their side: Each opponent the rest of the way currently owns a losing record.
Starting next week with the NFC East rival Dallas Cowboys.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Eagles were without starting cornerback Ronald Darby for the fifth straight week and starting linebacker Mychal Kendricks for Monday night's game against Washington.
Darby practiced this week for the first time since he dislocated his right ankle in the opener against the Redskins. Darby was listed as inactive and might be ready to play Sunday against San Francisco.
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Quinton Dunbar takes pride in the way Washington Redskins defensive backs coach Torrian Gray makes every member of the secondary prepare as though he's starting.
"When you get in, you are expected to play like a starter," Dunbar said.
That approach has come in handy this season. Already 2015 All-Pro Josh Norman, fellow cornerback Bashaud Breeland and safety Stefan McClure have gone down with injuries, and second-year safety Su'a Cravens left the team to contemplate retirement.
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Washington Redskins rookie defensive lineman Jonathan Allen has a Lisfranc sprain in his foot and will miss some time, according to coach Jay Gruden.
Allen could miss three or four weeks, Gruden said while providing injury updates Monday. Gruden said kicker Dustin Hopkins has a hip injury that could also cause him to miss the Redskins' upcoming game at the NFC East-leading Philadelphia Eagles and that they'll work out some free agent kickers this week.
NEW YORK (AP) — Baltimore linebacker Za'Darius Smith and Washington cornerback Bashaud Breeland have been fined $18,231 by the NFL for hits last weekend.
Smith was called for roughing the passer after hitting Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger in the Ravens' loss to the Steelers.
Breeland made a horsecollar tackle of Kansas City running back Kareem Hunt in the third quarter of the Redskins' loss to the Chiefs last Monday night.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — D.J. Swearinger wasn't even sure he could play Monday night in Kansas City because of a hamstring injury, yet the Redskins safety was on the field from start to finish.
Good thing, too. The Redskins might have run out of backup defensive backs.
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The Washington Redskins wrapped up their Richmond training camp Monday with a brief workout that ended when free safety D.J. Swearinger kicked an extra point that barely cleared the crossbar.
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Bashaud Breeland intercepts a pass during practice and heads toward the end zone, and free safety D.J. Swearinger runs alongside hooting and hollering as if the play just won the Washington Redskins the Super Bowl.
Earlier, Swearinger made the same celebratory noises when it was him with the pick.
The 25 year old, in his first season with the Redskins, has stamped himself as the team's energy guy.
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Will Compton figured the Washington Redskins' defense wouldn't be a quick fix, and he was right.
The middle linebacker hoped for the best, but the unit ranked 28th in the NFL for the second straight year as its struggles contributed to what coach Jay Gruden called a "barely above average" 8-7-1 season. Slow starts and inconsistent offense hurt Washington down the stretch, but retooling the defense — again — is a top priority.
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed will miss Sunday's game at the Arizona Cardinals with a sprained left shoulder.
Redskins coach Jay Gruden announced Friday that Reed would sit out. It'll be the third game missed this season by Reed, who leads the Redskins with 59 catches. He has 630 yards receiving and five TDs.
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Washington Redskins running back Matt Jones was held out of practice Wednesday with a knee injury.
Coach Jay Gruden says Jones reported soreness while moving laterally and pain when cutting. It's unclear how the injury will affect Jones' availability for the Redskins' game Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals in London.
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden says an MRI shows that left tackle Trent Williams' left knee is "structurally OK."
Speaking to reporters Monday, Gruden called the information about his Pro Bowl offensive lineman "good news", but added that Williams will need to be monitored during the week.
Williams left Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Detroit Lions after injuring his knee.
