KEYS TO THE GAME
Packers: Rodgers leads all passers this postseason in completions (49), yards (546), completion percentage (77.8) and rating (134.5). He is second with six touchdown passes. Rodgers set a league record with 10 touchdown throws in his first three playoff games, dating to his debut last season when he had a career-high four in a wild-card loss at Arizona. ... CB Tramon Williams, who has three postseason interceptions this season, has been added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster as an injury replacement for Asante Samuel. ... LB Frank Zombo has yet to practice this week and likely won't be available for the NFC Championship Game on Sunday. The rookie has missed the last five games because of a knee sprain. ... LB Erik Walden is penciled in for another start on the right side in the absence of Zombo. Walden, a free-agent pickup at midseason, has started four of the last five games. He made a name for himself in the Jan. 2 regular-season finale against the Bears, sacking Cutler three times and producing 16 tackles. ... FB John Kuhn had limited work in practice Thursday for the second straight day. Kuhn is recovering from a shoulder stinger he sustained in the divisional playoff win at Atlanta on Saturday. Kuhn, who is a big part of the offense as both a fullback and halfback, is expected to be OK for Sunday. ... FB Korey Hall is practicing this week after missing the last three games because of an aggravated knee sprain. Hall, a starter earlier in the season, has been a key contributor on special teams and might have an integral role in that regard Sunday. ... S Atari Bigby will be under consideration to be activated for the game for what he can offer on special teams and also in a situational role on defense. Bigby isn't on the injury report after being out for three games because of a groin strain. ... WR Antonio Robinson was signed to the practice squad Wednesday. The 6-1, 195-pound Robinson originally was signed as an undrafted rookie out of Nicholls State by the Bears and also had a stint on the Seattle Seahawks practice squad this season. ... S Anthony Levine was placed on the practice squad/injured list to make room for Robinson. The undrafted rookie was on the practice squad all season.
