NFC Championship Inactives: Kevin King good to go, Buccaneers lose Antoine Winfield Jr.

The Packers have a relatively clean bill of health ahead of their matchup with the Buccaneers in the NFC Championship game.

The Packers will have everyone available in the secondary today as they host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line.

Though he’d been questionable with a back injury, Kevin King will be in the lineup today, as will recently re-acquired cornerback Tramon Williams. King missed the Packers’ matchup with the Buccaneers in Week 6, with 2018 second-round pick Josh Jackson playing every snap in his absence. This time around, it’s Jackson on the shelf and King in the lineup.

Outside of King, there are no surprises on the inactive list for the Packers. Kingsley Keke will miss his second playoff game, but he’d already been ruled out late in the week.

On the Buccaneers’ side, they’ll be without playmaking safety Antoine Winfield Jr. An ankle injury late in practice late in the week will keep him on the sidelines for today’s game. The rookie had started every game for the Buccaneers this season, recording an interception, six passes defensed, and three sacks.

However, it’s not all bad news for Tampa Bay. Massive defensive tackle Vita Vea is active and apparently ready to go, having been activated from injured reserve this week after fracturing an ankle in Week 5.
