Brad Jones, James Jones, Nick Perry all out for Green Bay

The Packers knew they would be without several regulars well in advance of Sunday night’s game against the Vikings.

Linebacker Clay Matthews and tight end Jermichael Finley never had a chance of playing this week, but there was some hope that linebackers Brad Jones and Nick Perry would be able to play after limited participation in practice this week. Neither player is in the lineup, however.

Perry injured his foot a couple of weeks ago, an injury that was reportedly set to keep him out for a long stretch but the Packers were hopeful he’d make it back this week. Jones is missing his third straight game with a hamstring injury.

As expected, wide receiver James Jones remains out with a knee injury. Tight end Ryan Taylor and cornerback James Nixon are also inactive for Green Bay.

Quarterback Josh Freeman was ruled out for the Vikings because of a concussion. Tight end Rhett Ellison, wide receiver Rodney Smith, running back Matt Asiata, cornerback Shaun Prater, guard Jeff Baca and defensive tackle Chase Baker join him on the inactive list.

    They should probably sit Rodgers too. They’re only scrimmaging against the hapless and tasteless Vikings in preparation for their big rivalry game next weekend against the Bears. .

    Every year the Vikings circle this game on there schedule. This is there version of the Super Bowl.
    They play better than they are!

    Packers’ list shows a couple of first round draft picks out and about 5 guys down with injury.

    The Vikings’ list is well, a list.

    If MN doesn’t win – they really need to shut up about what GB is and isn’t when it comes to a team.

    With half their regular starters inactive and a bunch of no-name 4th string replacements playing, there’s no way the Packers would beat an elite team.

    Against the Vikings, they win by two scores.

    Hold those guys out during the near bye week.
    Let them get healthy for the Bears next week.

    A banged up team had 4th qt leads (on the road) against the Bengals and 49ers….

    They’re right there – just get healthy and play smarter…. they’re gonna beat these elite teams.
