2013 NFL Playoffs: Vikings vs. Packers inactives

USA TODAY Sports

The Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers both released their gameday inactives for Saturday's Wild Card Playoffs game.

The Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers are just a little over an hour away from getting the NFC Wildcard Playoffs under way, and both teams have released their gameday inactives prior to kickoff.

The most significant player, by far, is Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder. He has bursitis in his throwing arm and had a buildup of fluid throughout the week that limited his reps in practice. Many thought he'd be ready to go by Saturday but reports trickled out a couple of hours before the game doubting his status.

Ponder received treatment before the game, in which he likely had the fluid drained, and was throwing in warmups, surrounded by trainers. Joe Webb will get the start in his place, and the decision seemed to go down to the wire.

For the Packers, there are no surprises, as their list was expected. Below, the full inactives.

Packers Inactives: WR Donald Driver, CB Jarrett Boykin, CB Davon House, RB James Starks, OLB Frank Zombo, DT Jordan Miller, DE Jerel Worthy.

Vikings Inactives: QB Christian Ponder, WR Stephen Burton, CB Brandon Burton, LB Tyrone McKenzie, G Troy Kropog, DE George Johnson, DE D'Aundre Reed.
