Randall Cobb won't play for the Packers, but Jordy Nelson and a crew of previously injured defensive linemen are active.
The Green Bay Packers aren't taking any chances with their banged-up players, even though a first round bye is on the line against the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday afternoon. Randall Cobb, who hurt his ankle last week and is expected to be fine for the playoffs, will sit this one out. He's joined by a number of usual suspects on the inactive list for Green Bay.

I was hoping we might get to see Donald Driver play in one last game as a member of the Packers with Cobb out, but it wasn't to be. That list of inactive players is all good news for the Vikings. It means that defensive end Brian Robison and cornerback Antoine Winfield, who have been hurt recently, are going to play for Minnesota.
