Mike Neal among Packers inactives


There was really only one “game-time decision” of note in Thursday night’s game.

Packers second year defensive lineman Mike Neal will miss the season opener. He was questionable on the injury report.  Neal missed most of his rookie year, and he was essentially expected to replace Cullen Jenkins.  Now Jairus Wynn will start instead.

CB Davon House, S MD Jennings, LB Frank Zombo, T Derek Sherrod, TE Ryan Taylor, and LB Vic So’oto are also out for Green Bay.  Sherrod was the team’s first round pick, and couldn’t win the job as the team’s third tackle.

The Saints didn’t have huge injury questions. Kicker Garrett Hartley is out, as is Lance Moore.   We knew that already.   Wide receiver Adrian Arrington is active.

Here’s the rest of the Saints list: RB Joique Bell, CB Johnny Patrick, OL Matt Tennant, TE John Gilmore, and DT Tom Johnson.
