GREEN BAY, WI (WHBL) - Nose tackle B-J Raji is expected to go on injured reserve, after being declared out for the year with a torn biceps suffered in Friday night's win over Oakland. Two more starters are also out for the Green Bay Packers. Coach Mike McCarthy said Sunday that second-year center J-C Tretter would be out for multiple weeks with a left knee injury suffered in Friday night's exhibition win over Oakland. On the defensive side, inside linebacker Brad Jones injured a quadriceps on Friday night. McCarthy said Jones might return in time for Green Bay's regular season opener at Seattle a week from Thursday night. Jamari Lattimore would most likely start in Jones' place, with help from Sam Barrington. Tretter was absent from practice Sunday. He played the entire first half before giving way to fifth-round rookie center Corey Linsley, who will start for now. Agent Alan Herman said Tretter apparently had a severe bone bruise, and it could take 3-to-6 weeks to heal depending on how it's treated. Meanwhile, corner Casey Hayward returned to practice yesterday on a limited basis. McCarthy says the coaches are being cautious with Hayward, after he sat out much of last season with a bad hamstring. Meanwhile, the Packers cut seven players on Sunday, including receiver Chris Harper. The back-up was signed late last season from San Francisco. Chase Rettig, the Packers' fourth quarterback at training camp, was also let go along with receiver Gerrard Sheppard, fullback Ina Liaina, linebacker Korey Jones, safety Charles Clay, and corner Antonio Dennard. Green Bay's roster is now at 81 players. Don Barclay and Jared Abbrederis are also expected to go on the I-R, meaning the Packers will have to cut three players by 3pm Tuesday to reach this week's N-F-L roster limit of 75 players
