- Mike Neal, Frank Zombo and Chad Clifton have already been ruled out of Monday’s game.
- Neal practiced in limited fashion every day this week, but the Packers clearly aren’t going to take a chance with him on Monday. The good news is that he appears to be making good progress.
- The toughest choice seemingly comes down to the two rookie outside linebackers, Jamari Lattimore and Vic So’oto. The deactivation of Zombo, makes one of them a likely choice to play on Monday. Lattimore has been the better special teams player while So’oto is probably the better defender. But for some reason, the coaching staff has been hesitant to give So’oto a chance on D. The guess is that they’ll continue to go with Lattimore as they’ve done more frequently this season.
- Davon House, Robert Francois and Ray Dominguez have all been inactive for several games this season. That figures to continue.
