Teddy Bridgewater inactive vs. Packers

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is officially inactive for Thursday's game against the Green Bay Packers.

Bridgewater, who sprained his left ankle Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons, will sit out, as Christian Ponder starts for the Vikings. Chandler Harnish, who was added to the practice squad Monday and activated from it Thursday afternoon, will back up Ponder.

The Vikings will also be without linebacker Chad Greenway, who had been ruled out for Thursday's game with a broken rib and broken hand. There aren't many surprises among their other inactives: Defensive end Scott Crichton, linebacker Brandon Watts, guard Austin Wentworth, guard David Yankey and tight end Kyle Rudolph will all sit out.

There's no rain at Lambeau Field yet, though it certainly looks like precipitation is on the way. We'll see how the Vikings handle their latest set of injuries in about 90 minutes.
