D.J. Williams and Phillip Merling have moved to the inactives list
D.J. Williams is a slightly surprising, but not astonishing healthy scratch. Tom Crabtree, who was out last week, takes his place. Manning has been on the list before when other linebackers were healthy, while the first four players on that list have not been active for the Packers this season. Jamari Lattimore, who was inactive last week, is back from injury. The Packers are opting for more depth at LB than DL, and have sacrificed Lattimore in his place.
The Saints' inactives are Turk McBride, Jonathan Casillas, David Hawthorne, Tyrunn Walker, Chris Ivory, Bryce Harris and Elbert Mack. Ivory, who has had two solid years for the Saints, has not been active this year. Such is their insane depth at RB, though it hasn't helped them this year.
