Green Bay Packers at New Orleans Saints

Monday, November 24th, 2008
7:30pm CST, ESPN
This is an open thread for the game.

Inactives from NFL.com:

Packers: QB Brian Brohm (3rd), WR James Jones, LB Nick Barnett, OT Breno Giacomini, DB Charlie Peprah, RB DeShawn Wynn, OL Allen Barbre, DE Jeremy Thompson.

Analysis: CB Charles Woodson is active and will start, as expected. WR Jordy Nelson will see time in the slot with Jones out.

Saints: QB Joey Harrington (3rd), RB Reggie Bush, WR David Patten, FB Mike Karney, LB Jo-Lonn Dunbar, CB Aaron Glenn, CB David Pittman, OT Jermon Bushrod.

Analysis: Bush is inactives, so RB Deuce McAllister will start and share carries with RB Pierre Thomas. The latter figures to be the better bet for fantasy points. WR Marques Colston is active and will start, as expected.

No surprises for the Packers. Barnett is done for the season after his knee injury. Jones is healthy, but the Packers have only had 4 WRs active for most of the games this season. WR Ruvell Martin gets the nod over Jones this week. I don't know what that nonsense about "WR Jordy Nelson will see time in the slot with Jones out." Nelson has been ahead of Jones all of 2008. Thompson is still out with a groin injury. Again this week they've kept only two RBs active and Wynn is inactive.

The big news is that RB Reggie Bush is again inactive. He's been almost back from injury the past two weeks. It looks like the Saints will have to wait another week.
