GREEN BAY PACKERS (3-1) GAME #5 WASHINGTON REDSKINS (2-2)
Date: October 10, 2010 Location: Landover, MD
Time: Noon CST
Stadium: FedEx Field
TV: FOX Favorite: Packers by 3
Weather: 69 degrees, sunny Injury Report: Friday Injury Report
SBN Coverage: Hogs Haven My Prediction: Packers 24, Redskins 17

Inactives from the Journal-Sentinel:

CB Sam Shields, FB Quinn Johnson, LB Brandon Chillar, LB Nick Barnett, RT Mark Tauscher, OG Nick McDonald, OT Marshall Newhouse and DE Jarius Wynn.

No surprises as Shields, Johnson, Chillar, and Barnett were known to be injured and out all week. Tauscher had a chance to go, but he's obviously not quite ready, and rookie Bryan Bulaga gets his first career NFL start. McDonald, Newhouse, and Wynn are all inactive regulars, but T.J. Lang gets his first appearance on the active roster this season in place of Tauscher.

For the Redskins, the Washington Post reports that only RB Clinton Portis is out due to injury, but DT Albert Haynesworth is absent due to the death of his half-brother, and LG Derrick Dockery is inactive since he's lost his starting job. Also, on something that wouldn't have mattered on the field anyway, they just released disappointing WR Devin Thomas, who was their top pick in 2008, but a complete bust on the field.
