Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers

6pm CST, ESPN
This is an open thread for the game.
UPDATE: He had been practicing the last few days, but in a mild surprise, LB A.J. Hawk is active and will start. Starting C Scott Wells isn't ready to return, even as a backup, and is inactive for the game. The inactives from greenbaypressgazette.com:
Center Scott Wells (lower back) is the most notable name on the Packers' inactive list. There was a chance he would be activated as a backup in spite of missing the entire week of practice, but rookie tackle Breno Giacomini will dress instead.
The other inactives are as I guessed earlier: CB Pat Lee, S Charlie Peprah, G Josh Sitton, TE Jermichael Finley, WR James Jones and DE Jeremy Thompson. Rookie Brian Brohm is the No. 3 quarterback.
Inactive for the Vikings are: S Madieu Williams, CB Marcus McCauley, RB Maurice Hicks, LB Erin Henderson, T Drew Radovich, FB Jeff Dugan and DT Letroy Guion. Rookie John David Booty is the No. 3 quarterback. Only Williams is a starter, though Hicks probably would return kickoffs if healthy.
