Despite reports to the contrary, Bernard Berrian is active today for the Vikings against the Packers. Berrian was limited Thursday and Friday with a hamstring injury.
WR Percy Harvin is active as well. He had struggled with illness last week, and NFL.com reported that it was a recurrence of his migraines.
Inactive for the Vikings are QB Sage Rosenfels (third QB), CB Antoine Winfield (foot), RB Albert Young, FB Naufahu Tahi (knee), C Jon Cooper, WR Darius Reynaud (hamstring), DE Jayme Mitchell and DT Letroy Guion.
With Winfield out, Karl Paymah or Benny Sapp is being listed as a replacement, but the Vikings aren't being specific with it. With Tahi out, Jeff Dugan is the starting replacement.
Inactive for Green Bay are FB Korey Hall, S Matt Giordano, T Breno Giacomini, OL Jason Spitz, WR Jordy Nelson, TE Jermichael Finley, DE Jarius Wynn and LB Jeremy Thompson.
The biggest of those is Finley. Finley had 128 yards against the Vikings at the Metrodome. He didn't practice last week because of a knee injury.
Also of note is the fact that Chad Clifton is being listed as the Packers' starter at left tackle. That should provide a good matchup with Vikings defensive end Jared Allen, who had 4½ sacks last time against Daryn Colledge and rookie T.J. Lang.
