If you missed it, the final injury report is out. B.J. Raji, Robert Francois, Tom Crabtree and Sean Richardson are probable. Jamari Lattimore, Davon House and James Starks are all out. Raji participated fully in practice, Green sat out of practice and did his own work, while the other players all had limited participation in practice.
The Packers have to name seven inactive players just before the game this afternoon, with just three of those decided for them already. Obviously, that's good news. Mike McCarthy has almost certainly made up his mind on the inactive players already, but I can't imagine it was an easy decision. Here's my best guess at the other five inactives, with some input from Tex.
Sean Richardson: Four safeties should do the trick. The team is already having to make a tough decision on who to play at nickel safety and another backup isn't necessary.
Phillip Merling: The Packers won't be going to three down linemen that often. They already have C.J. Wilson, Ryan Pickett and Mike Daniels apart from the two "starters", and Wilson is the first choice guy in the 3-4. I'm guessing that Daniels is ahead of Merling right now. One of them will be inactive.
Brandian Ross: I was very surprised that he made the team in the first place. Even with House out, I don't see him making the active roster.
