Frank Zombo figures to definitely see his first regular-season action this season on Sunday after participating fully in the Packers' Wednesday practice. Zombo, who provided an unexpected spark as a rookie with his play at right outside linebacker, missed the first five games with a fractured shoulder blade that has healed much quicker than initially expected.

Also noteworthy was the return to practice, albeit on a limited basis, by starting ORT Bryan Bulaga, who missed the past two games with a knee injury. Bulaga's return to the starting lineup would provide a boost for an offensive line that will be operating until further notice without veteran starting OLT Chad Clifton, who suffered a "significant" hamstring injury last Sunday night in Atlanta.

As has been customary so far this season, neither OLB Clay Matthews (quadriceps) nor CB Charles Woodson (foot-knee), participated in the Wednesday practice.
