Packers inactives: James Jones out again
By Rob Demovsky
MINNEAPOLIS -- As expected, Green Bay Packers receiver James Jones will miss his second straight game.
Jones said earlier in the week that he might be able to play if it were the Super Bowl.
Jones was listed as doubtful for Sunday night’s game against the Minnesota Vikings. He has not practiced since he sustained a sprained left knee on Oct. 13 against the Baltimore Ravens -- the same game in which receiver Randall Cobb sustained a fractured fibula that landed him on the injured reserve/designated to return.
Jarrett Boykin, who had eight catches for 103 yards and a touchdown last Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, will make his second career start.
The Packers will have four receivers available -- Boykin, Jordy Nelson, Myles White and Chris Harper.
Linebacker Nick Perry, who returned to practice on Friday, and was listed as questionable also will not play. Perry’s return to practice was a surprise.
Tight end Andrew Quarless will start in place of Jermichael Finley (neck).
Here’s the full inactive list:
