Packer inactives from NFL.com: FB Korey Hall, RB DeShawn Wynn, S Matt Giordano, RT Mark Tauscher, T Breno Giacomini, C Jason Spitz, DE Jarius Wynn, LB Jeremy Thompson.

The surprise is Spitz, who Mike McCarthy expected to play. C Scott Wells will continue to start, as he's done for the past two games. FB Quinn Johnson and RB Brandon Jackson will play for the injured Hall and Wynn. With the season ending ACL injury to CB Will Blackmon, rookie 6th round pick CB Brandon Underwood will play in his first NFL game. LB Rookie 7th round LB Brad Jones will play ahead of the injured Thompson.

Lions inactives: QB Matthew Stafford, S Ko Simpson, CB Philip Buchanon, G Manny Ramirez, T Jon Jansen, DT Sammie Lee Hill, DE Jason Hunter, DE Dewayne White.

Stafford is the big name, but he was expected out. It looked like WR Calvin Johnson would miss the game, but he's going to play. We'll have to see how effective he'll be.
