Vikings-Packers Inactives: Bridgewater Sits, Barrington and Boyd Out for Green Bay

New, comments

The Vikings are indeed rolling with Christian Ponder at quarterback this evening.

The inactive players for both the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings have been announced for tonight's game. As reported earlier this afternoon, the Vikings have inactivated quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and will roll with Christian Ponder as their starting quarterback this week.

For the Packers, no starters are inactive this week, though key backups at inside linebacker, defensive end, and wide receiver will sit out.

One interesting note is that even though inside linebacker Brad Jones is active this week, Jamari Lattimore will remain the starter at the right inside linebacker position. Apparently Jones' poor play against the Seahawks and Lattimore's solid job in relief the past three weeks made an impression on the Packers' coaches.

Defensive end Luther Robinson, who was added to the 53-man roster this afternoon, is indeed active today due to Josh Boyd's injury. Robinson will replace Boyd in the rotation on the defensive line, backing up Datone Jones and Mike Daniels.
