MINNEAPOLIS -- Bernard Berrian's groin injury apparently wasn't enough to keep him out for a second consecutive game.

The Minnesota Vikings' veteran receiver worked out in front of trainers and coach Brad Childress about 2 hours before Sunday's kickoff against the Green Bay Packers and wasn't on the inactives list.

Berrian was limited in practice all week because of the groin injury that led to his strange self-benching last week in Chicago. So were center John Sullivan (calf) and right guard Anthony Herrera (elbow), who also were active and expected to start against the Packers.

Inactive for the Vikings: No. 3 quarterback Joe Webb, receiver Hank Baskett, cornerback Lito Sheppard, running back Albert Young, safety Eric Frampton, linebacker Erin Henderson, guard Chris DeGeare and defensive tackle Fred Evans.

Receiver Sidney Rice, who was activated off the reserve/physically unable to perform list on Saturday, was active and expected to make his 2010 debut.

Frampton was ruled out on Friday with a hamstring injury that kept him out of practice all week.

Cornerback Asher Allen (concussion) returned after a one-week absence and was expected to get the start over rookie Chris Cook.

Defensive tackle Ryan Pickett (ankle) and receiver Donald Driver (quadriceps) were active and expected to start for the Packers. Fullback Korey Hall (back) was out and replaced atop the depth chart by Quinn Johnson.

Also inactive the Packers: cornerback Brandon Underwood, tight end Spencer Havner, running back James Starks, linebacker Diyral Briggs, center/guard Nick McDonald, guard/tackle Marshall Newhouse and end Jarius Wynn.
