ARLINGTON, Texas -- Among the notable inactives for Super Bowl XLV is right outside linebacker Erik Walden.

Walden was the Cowboys' sixth-round pick in 2008 and was released in training camp.

But he caught on with the Green Bay Packers and emerged as a starter this season. But an ankle injury will keep him out of the Super Bowl.

Frank Zombo will replace him in the starting lineup.
Calvin Watkins joined ESPNDallas.com in September 2009. He's covered the Cowboys since 2006 and also has covered colleges, boxing and high school sports.
