Packers 46-Man Roster Prediction for Week 12 vs. Vikings

Here's our best guess at predicting the Green Bay Packers' game-day roster for Sunday's Week 12 game against the Minnesota Vikings. Reminder, only 46 players can be active...

The entire roster is included. Those bold and italicized are predicted to be inactive...

Quarterback: Aaron Rodgers, Scott Tolzien, Matt Flynn

Running back: Eddie Lacy, John Kuhn, James Starks, Johnathan Franklin

Wide receiver: Jordy Nelson, James Jones, Jarrett Boykin, Myles White, Chris Harper

Tight end: Andrew Quarless, Ryan Taylor, Brandon Bostick, Jake Stoneburner

Offensive line: David Bakhtiari, Josh Sitton, Evan Dietrich-Smith, T.J. Lang, Don Barclay, Marshall Newhouse, Lane Taylor, Derek Sherrod

Defensive line: Datone Jones, B.J. Raji, Ryan Pickett, C.J. Wilson, Johnny Jolly, Mike Daniels, Josh Boyd

Outside linebacker: Clay Matthews, Nick Perry, Mike Neal, Nate Palmer, Andy Mulumba

Inside linebacker: A.J. Hawk, Brad Jones, Jamari Lattimore

Cornerback: Tramon Williams, Sam Shields, Casey Hayward, Micah Hyde, Davon House, Jarrett Bush, James Nixon

Safety: Morgan Burnett, M.D. Jennings, Jerron McMillian, Chris Banjo

Special teams: Mason Crosby, Tim Masthay, Brett Goode


  • Five players are officially listed as "out": Aaron Rodgers (collabone), Don Barclay (knee), Nick Perry (ankle/foot), Casey Hayward (hamstring) and James Nixon (knee).
  • Johnny Jolly is listed as "doubtful," giving him roughly a 25 percent chance of playing, and almost assuredly won't play.
  • Sam Shields (hamstring) is listed as questionable, ostensibly giving him a 50/50 shot of playing, but probably won't after not practicing all week. After what happened with Hayward, the Packers likely won't want to take chances.
  • Six players are listed as "probable" but all are predicted to play: Clay Matthews (thumb), Ryan Pickett (knee), Mike Neal (abdomen), Andy Mulumba (ankle), Micah Hyde (groin) and Evan Dietrich-Smith (knee).
  • Hyde is the only one among the players listed as "probable" who missed practice this week, but indications are that the injury isn't serious. Of course, it appeared the same way with Shields last week and he surprisingly ended up on the inactive list.
  • The situation at cornerback may appear thin, but as long as Hyde plays, the Packers should be fine. And even if he doesn't, Jerron McMillian can play the slot cornerback position in the nickel and dime defenses.
  • Chris Harper is predicted to be active for the first time in several weeks, but could be the player to sit down if Shields happens to play.

Jerron Mcmillan. Say it ain't so. Might as well put James Nixon in there. Mcmillan won't be employed by this time next year.

Packers should be able to get by with 3 CB's honestly.
The Vikings don't have much for WR's, and they will almost always have Peterson and Rudolph on the field.

Think I heard Rudolph might be out. He has an injury forget what tho.

allen is 43 years old at least

Uncle Louie's picture

I'd take him. Major upgrade. Plays every game, full throttle every play,, mean, nasty, hates to lose, great team player. Has at least 3 more very good years left. Plays with injuries that would keep most players out for weeks. Payton Manning is 50 yrs old at least, how's he doing?

I feel better already knowing that Mcmillian can fill in, please get healthy whoever you are we need all of you.
