Green Bay, WI - When Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said "we suffered a significant amount of injuries" following Green Bay's 31-17 loss to the Washington Redskins, he wasn't exaggerating.

Six starting players had to exit the game due to injuries at Fed Ex Field Sunday. 

Add to the list Packers tight end Jimmy Graham with a knee injury that kept him out of Wednesday's practice in preparation for Sunday's game against the 1-2 Buffalo Bills at Lambeau Field. 

Defensive lineman Mo Wilkerson, 28, remains hospitalized in Washington D.C. following surgery to repair a broken ankle with ligament damage. 

Packers right guard Justin McCray left the game after a shoulder injury that has been "bothering me for sometime" forcing him to give up his spot to fellow lineman Bryon Bell.

Right tackle Bryan Bulaga was able to participate in some drills Wednesday after leaving the Redskins game Sunday just before halftime with a sore back. Jason Spriggs took over at right tackle and produced mixed results. 

Outside linebacker Nick Perry suffered a head injury late in the fourth quarter and is now in the NFL's concussion protocal. 

On the rebound is safety Josh Jones who is slowly returning to action after missing the past few weeks with an ankle injury. 

Cornerback Kevin King missed Wednesday's practice, still dealing with a groin injury suffered against the Vikings last week. King says he has been running inside the Don Hutson Center as a way to build back his strength.  

On Tuesday, in somewhat of a suprise move, the Packers placed Davon House on the injured reserve list, saying the veteran cornerback had a shoulder injury that required season- ending surgery. 

Aaron Rodgers, who suffered a sprain in his left knee, said Wednesday the pain in his leg has dimished somewhat. Rodgers went on to discuss how he has been able to play through the pain of a knee injury the past two-and-a-half games.
