Giants-Packers Inactives: Damarious Randall out for Green Bay

Green Bay will not have its second-year corner after a Questionable designation on Friday.

The Green Bay Packers’ secondary is officially in panic mode tonight. For this evening’s game against the New York Giants, the Packers will be without both starting cornerbacks, as second-year corner Damarious Randall landed on tonight’s inactive list with a groin injury.

Randall joins Sam Shields on the bench, as the veteran was ruled out early this week with a concussion. That leaves the Packers with just four healthy players capable of playing the cornerback position: Quinten Rollins, LaDarius Gunter, Josh Hawkins, and safety/corner Micah Hyde.

The rest of the Packers’ inactives are no surprise - Jared Cook sits due to injury, and the team has deactivated a pair of young defensive linemen. That is likely due to matchups - the Packers will likely go with a lot of nickel and dime formations against the Giants’ deep receiving corps, leading to fewer snaps for the down linemen.

Meanwhile, the Giants have a starting safety out, but two of their top corners who were listed as questionable (Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Eli Apple) are both active for tonight’s game. Here are the full inactive reports for both teams.
