By now, you should know four of the Green Bay Packers' inactive players by heart. The Packers have announced their inactives for today's week 16 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the usual suspects make up the bulk of the list.

The only player who has played a major role for the Packers this year and who is inactive today is cornerback Davon House, whose absence has been expected. The shoulder injury he suffered against the Atlanta Falcons kept him out last week and is expected to sideline him until the playoffs.

You'll note that Bryan Bulaga is active today. He was originally listed on the injury report as Questionable with a concussion, but was upgraded to Probable on Saturday. Since he is active today, he has passed the concussion protocol. Here is the full list:

Packers Inactives

LB Carl Bradford
DT Bruce Gaston
C Garth Gerhart
CB Davon House
WR Jeff Janis
TE Justin Perillo
QB Scott Tolzien

For the Buccaneers, there are few surprises as well. The big loss for the Bucs, though, is on injured reserve: that's defensive tackle Gerald McCoy. Here are the seven players who will sit for Tampa today:

CB Isaiah Frey
WR Robert Herron
