After a two-game absence James Jones is active for the Packers Monday night.
The news for the Packers' banged-up defensive line got worse Wednesday when rookie DE Jerel Worthy's season ended with a knee injury suffered against the Vikings.
The Packers have already locked up a playoff berth, but that doesn't mean they won't be motivated against the Vikings on Sunday. They can improve their seed, and then there's this: not being on the wrong end of an Adrian Peterson record.
For the past couple of weeks, coach Mike McCarthy has insisted that veteran DB Charles Woodson, who's missed two months with a broken collarbone, would play as soon as he's ready. The Packers were not going to intentionally rest Woodson to give him extra time to fully heal for the playoffs, McCarthy said.
The Packers' offense got a boost Wednesday when WR Jordy Nelson and RB Alex Green returned to practice.
DB Charles Woodson is among Green Bay's inactives for its game against the Titans.
Although the Packers earned a bye last season and came back rusty in a loss to the Giants, coach Mike McCarthy wants to earn the bye again this season.
The Packers' battered offensive line has been decimated by injuries in recent weeks. On Thursday, it took another shot. Backup G Greg Van Roten hurt his back in practice, joining LG T.J. Lang (concussion, illness) and C Jeff Saturday (neck/shoulder) on the injury list.
The injuries continue for the Packers, and two of the biggest concerns are LG T.J. Lang and RB Alex Green, who both have concussions. QB Aaron Rodgers, who hurt his ankle against the Bears, was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.
Packers inactives for Sunday's game against the Bears include CB Charles Woodson and RB James Starks.
