MINNEAPOLIS -- The Green Bay Packers deactivated Randall Cobb for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings, leaving them without one of their best offensive weapons.

Cobb, who is battling knee and ankle injuries, was limited in practice during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He leads the Packers this season with 80 catches for 954 yards and eight touchdowns.

Also inactive for the Packers were: cornerbacks Charles Woodson and Davon House, halfback James Starks, linebacker Terrell Manning, receiver Donald Driver and defensive tackle Jordan Miller.

Receiver Jordy Nelson, who hadn't played since aggravating his hamstring injury in the first game against the Vikings on Dec. 2, was listed as probable and suited up as expected.

Meanwhile, end Brian Robison (shoulder) and cornerback Antoine Winfield (hand/knee) were active for the Vikings. Both had been listed as questionable on the injury report, but Robison made clear on Friday he intended to play and Winfield had been fitted with padding to protect his broken hand.

Inactive for the Vikings were: quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson, receiver Stephen Burton, cornerback Brandon Burton, safety Robert Blanton, linebacker Audie Cole, offensive lineman Troy Kropog and end D'Aundre Reed.
