Packers inactives: Five starters out
By Rob Demovsky
GREEN BAY, Wis. – Five Green Bay Packers starters were declared inactive for Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Rodgers, Perry and Barclay were all ruled out on Friday, while Jolly was doubtful. Shields was questionable.
Scott Tolzien will make his second straight start at quarterback, and Davon House will do the same for Shields at cornerback. Marshall Newhouse, who struggled last week against the New York Giants, will start again for Barclay. Mike Neal will start in place of Perry, and Mike Daniels will replace Jolly.
The other two inactives were receiver Chris Harper and linebacker Nate Palmer. Both were healthy scratches.
It was a bit of a surprise that Palmer was inactive because that left the Packers with only three available outside linebackers -- Neal, Clay Matthews, and Andy Mulumba. All three were on the injury report this week, listed as probable.
Also, safety Sean Richardson and defensive end Jerel Worthy, who were activated off the physically unable to perform list on Saturday, will be in uniform.
