OLB Frank Zombo and RB Dimitri Nance are the most noteworthy Packers players on the team’s inactive list for Sunday’s NFC championship game against the Bears. The other Packers inactives are: QB Graham Harrell, CB Patrick Lee, CB Josh Gordy, C-OG Evan Dietrich-Smith, C-OG Nick McDonald and DE Jarius Wynn.
The way we see it
Zombo, who was adequately replacing the injured Brad Jones at right outside linebacker before injuring his knee, will be sidelined for the sixth consecutive game. His replacement, Erik Walden, has done a decent job, especially in the Week 17 game against the Bears, when he had a team-high 16 tackles and a pair of sacks.
Nance has been relegated to the inactive list, with fellow rookie James Starks having emerged as the Packers’ new featured back.
