Packers-49ers II: Donald Driver active
By Kevin Seifert
SAN FRANCISCO -- The masses have gotten their wish: Veteran receiver Donald Driver is active for Saturday night's divisional playoff game between the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers.
Driver is one of six receivers who are in uniform for this game: Greg Jennings, James Jones, Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, Jeremy Ross and Driver. Are they going to come out throwing? Will they use more four-receiver sets? Or is it just a coincidence? We'll find out soon enough.
The Packers also made a flip at running back, deactivating Alex Green and making James Starks active for the game. Starks last played in Week 13, when he rushed for 66 yards before spraining his knee against the Minnesota Vikings.
It's expected, but has not been announced, that DuJuan Harris will start at running back for the Packers.
Other deactivations: Receiver Jarrett Boykin, cornerback Davon House, linebacker Frank Zombo, tight end D.J. Williams, defensive tackle Jordan Miller and defensive end Jerel Worthy.
