The entire roster is included. Those bold and italicized are predicted to be inactive...
Quarterbacks: Aaron Rodgers, Matt Flynn
Running backs: Ryan Grant, James Starks, John Kuhn, Brandon Saine
Wide receivers: Greg Jennings, Donald Driver, Jordy Nelson, James Jones, Randall Cobb
Tight ends: Jermichael Finley, Andrew Quarless, Tom Crabtree, Ryan Taylor, D.J. Williams
Offensive line: Chad Clifton, T.J. Lang, Scott Wells, Josh Sitton, Bryan Bulaga, Marshall Newhouse, Evan Dietrich-Smith, Derek Sherrod, Ray Dominguez
Defensive line: B.J. Raji, Ryan Pickett, Mike Neal, Jarius Wynn, C.J. Wilson, Howard Green
Outside linebackers: Clay Matthews, Erik Walden, Frank Zombo, Brad Jones, Jamari Lattimore, Vic So'oto
Inside linebackers: A.J. Hawk, Desmond Bishop, D.J. Smith, Robert Francois
Cornerbacks: Charles Woodson, Tramon Williams, Sam Shields, Jarrett Bush, Pat Lee, Davon House
Safeties: Morgan Burnett, Charlie Peprah, M.D. Jennings
Specialists: Mason Crosby, Tim Masthay, Brett Goode
- Chad Clifton and Mike Neal have already been ruled out for the game.
- The toughest decision came down to Vic So'oto. Head coach Mike McCarthy made the head-scratching comment that he had to play on special teams if he was going to be active. They seem to like Lattimore better on special teams, so I give him the nod.
- They were making the comment earlier in the week that newly signed running back Brandon Saine was going to play on special teams, but I just don't see it happening. They didn't need Alex Green when their full complement of back was healthy, so I don't think they need Saine on Sunday either.
- Robert Francois and Ray Dominguez were healthy scratches the last game against Minnesota, and they very likely will be again.
