A lot of names, but few players are out. I would expect starters DT Ryan Pickett and CB Charles Woodson will play. It looks like CB Jarrett Bush will return as the nickel back. TE Bubba Franks might even make it back and make the rare sightings of backup TE Ryan Krause even rarer. The only player out is FB Korey Hall which sucks since he's been playing so well.

Still the Packers situation is much better than it is in Chicago. QB Rex Grossman is listed as the 3rd QB, but he dressed in street clothes for their last game and is out for the season. Defensive starters LB Lance Briggs and DE Mark Anderson appear out while starting DT Tommie Harris, DT Darwin Walker, and CB Nathan Vasher might not play. That's five starters to go along with their other starters (LG Ruben Brown, RB Cedric Benson, FS Mike Brown) that have already been lost for the season. It's not the only reason they've had such a disappointing season, but it's a big part of the problem.
