Daryn Colledge named Packers starter at left guard


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Daryn Colledge will start at left guard for the Green Bay Packers, the same spot where he finished last season.

Coach Mike McCarthy made the announcement Sunday at the team's first practice following a 59-24 preseason victory over Indianapolis on Thursday night. Colledge took all the snaps with the No. 1 offensive line while first-round pick Bryan Bulaga was sidelined by a hip injury.

Bulaga took part only in the jog-through portion of Sunday's practice, leaving him out of the race to start as a rookie. Earlier in camp, Jason Spitz and Allen Barbre challenged for Colledge's starting job and came up short as well.

Colledge has started 60 regular-season games since the Packers drafted him in the second round in 2006 out of Boise State, with 55 of those starts coming at left guard.
