Packers' inactives: No more drama
By Rob Demovsky
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- A week after quarterback Aaron Rodgers and receiver Randall Cobb returned from long injury absences, there was no drama among the Green Bay Packers’ inactives for Sunday’s NFC wild-card playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers at Lambeau Field.
Other than linebacker Clay Matthews, who was ruled out early in the week because of his broken thumb, the Packers had a healthy roster to choose from for their 46-man game-day roster.
Linebacker Brad Jones, who was listed as probable on the injury report, returned a week after missing the regular-season finale against the Chicago Bears because of an ankle injury.
The Packers also decided to dress only two quarterbacks this week, Rodgers and Matt Flynn. Against the Bears, Scott Tolzien was active as the third quarterback in Rodgers' return from his fractured collarbone.
The biggest news among the inactives came from the 49ers, who will be without cornerback Carlos Rogers.
