Unlike the Lions’ inactive list, there are no big surprises among the Packers’ inactives.
But there are some big names, including running back Ahman Green, who was listed as doubtful with a groin injury, and linebacker Aaron Kampman, who suffered a serious knee injury last week.
It will be interesting to see how the Lions’ passing game, which will have both quarterback Matthew Stafford and wide receiver Calvin Johnson, matches up against the Packers’ pass defense, which will be without Kampman and cornerback Al Harris. Harris isn’t on the inactive list because he was already placed on injured reserve, where Kampman is likely to land soon.
The Packers’ other inactives are wide receiver Biren Ealy, defensive end Jarius Wynn, defensive backs Josh Bell and Matt Giordano and offensive tackles Breno Giacomini and Allen Barbre.
