The inactives lists for both Sunday Night Football teams are now in.
The Green Bay Packers will be without veteran cornerback Sam Shields and, perhaps more importantly, their starting left tackle David Bakhtiari. The Packers offensive line seems like a logical weakness to exploit in Week 17 and here is hoping Everson Griffen can properly take advantage.
The other inactives for the Packers are LB Jayrone Elliot, CB Ladarius Gunter, QB Brett Hundley, TE Justin Perillo, and G Josh Walker.
The Vikings are unsurprisingly going to be without nose tackle Linval Joseph, leaving yet another opportunity for Tom Johnson to prove himself as a very capable player with Mike Zimmer’s scheme.
Wide out Charles Johnson continues to be an unexplained missing persons case, as he will again be inactive, showing just how far he has fallen since this time last year.
The other Vikings inactives are C Nick Easton, QB Taylor Heinicke, DE Zach Moore, OL Jeremiah Sirles, and LB Brandon Watts.
