Inactives from the Journal-Sentinel:
CB Brandon Underwood, FB Quinn Johnson, G Nick McDonald, T/G T.J. Lang, G/T Marshall Newhouse, TE Andrew Quarless, DE Mike Neal, DE C.J. Wilson.
QB Mike Kafka, LB Jamar Chaney, LB Daniel Te'o-Nesheim, LB Keenan Clayton, OG Max Jean-Gilles, T Austin Howard, OG Reggie Wells, DE Darryl Tapp.
The only player inactive due to injury is Underwood. Greg Bedard points out that the Packers only have 4 defensive linemen active. He thought it meant they'll be playing a lot of nickel, which is probably true, but it might also mean they're playing with extra linebackers (all 8 are active). With former college defensive ends, LB Clay Matthews (and possibly LB Frank Zombo, depending on how much he's in the rotation) and the 4 defensive lineman all current and former defensive tackles, they might often line up with a 4-3 look with 5 linebackers on the field.
