GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers will have both wide receiver Randall Cobb and cornerback Quinten Rollins Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts, but linebacker Clay Matthews will miss a second straight game.

The list of inactives the Packers released included Matthews once again. Matthews has been battling a hamstring ailment and while he has practiced in a limited fashion both weeks, the medical staff decided he wasn't ready to play.

Cobb (hamstring) and Rollins (groin) were both inactive last week against Atlanta, but will play today.

In addition, CB Demetri Goodson, who suffered a concussion against the Falcons, is active. The Packers will have LaDarius Gunter, Rollins and Goodson available to cover the Colts' strong receiving corps. It's unclear how much either Rollins or Goodson will play, but either one could be the starter.

Hear are the Packers' inactives:

  • OLB Clay Matthews
  • C JC Tretter 
  • CB Damarious Randall 
  • RB James Starks 
  • OT Kyle Murphy
  • TE Jared Cook 
  • DL Christian Ringo

The Colts will be without starting offensive linemen Jack Mewhort and Joe Reitz as well as DE Kendall Langford.  Joe Haeg will replace Reitz at right tackle and Jonotthan Harrison will replace Jack Mewhort at left guard.

In addition, the Colts will be without S Mike Adams. He will be replaced by T.J. Green

Here are the Colts' inactives:

  • WR Tevaun Smith
  • S Mike Adams
  • OLB Chris Carter
  • OG Jack Mewhort
  • OT Joe Reitz
  • DE Kendall Langford
  • DT Henry Anderson
