GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Minnesota Vikings had no surprises among their inactives for Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

Wide receiver Percy Harvin is on the list and will miss his third consecutive game because of a sprained ankle. That, however, was known on Saturday when the Vikings announced he was not going to travel with the team.

The Vikings other inactives were quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson; cornerback Brandon Burton; linebacker Audie Cole; guard Mark Asper; tight end Allen Reisner; and defensive end D'Aundre Reed.

The Packers inactives include safety Charles Woodson; running back Johnny White; cornerback Sam Shields; linebackers Clay Matthews and Terrell Manning; wide receiver Donald Driver; and defensive end C.J. Wilson.

Woodson (collarbone), Wilson (knee), White (concussion), Shields (ankle), Quarless (knee) and Matthews (hamstring) were declared out for the Packers on Friday.

Wide receiver Greg Jennings will return to play four weeks and three days after having surgery to repair a tear in his abdomen. 

Jerel Worthy will start at right defensive end in place of Wilson; Dezman Moses will start at right outside linebacker for Matthews; and Davon House will start at right cornerback for Shields.
