Green Bay Packers defensive tackle B.J. Raji (ankle) is out for the team's Week 7 matchup against the St. Louis Rams, according to the team's official injury report. The Packers have started the season with a disappointing 3-3 record, and the defense has been a particular cause for concern. Heading into Week 7, Green Bay is ranked No. 18 in passing defense and No. 17 in rushing defense.

Raji's absence will make their task even more difficult on Sunday. He missed his first start since the 2009 season when he was unable to play in Week 6 on Sunday night against the Houston Texans. The beefy defensive tackle and former first-round pick has recorded seven tackles so far in 2012 over five games.

In other Packers injury news, tight end Jermichael Finley (shoulder) and Aaron Rodgers (calf) were both listed as probable in Friday's injury report, while LB Nick Perry and CB Sam Shields joined Raji and Greg Jennings with an "out" designation.
