Three players who had been battling injuries – linebacker Nick Perry, tight end Brandon Bostick and special teams ace Jarrett Bush – were active Sunday for the Green Bay Packers as they hosted the New England Patriots at Lambeau Field.

Inactive for the Packers were tight end Justin Perillo, wide receiver Jeff Janis, defensive tackle Luther Robinson, center Garth Gerhart, linebacker Carl Bradford, cornerback Demetri Goodson and quarterback Scott Tolzien.

Perry, who missed last week's game against Minnesota, was expected to start at outside linebacker after dealing with a shoulder injury. He and Bush had been listed as questionable entering Sunday's game.

Bostick's hip injury had kept him out of the past two games but he was able to practice more last week than he had the past couple of weeks.

Two key inactives for the Patriots were starting defensive end Chandler Jones (hip) and long snapper Danny Aiken (concussion). Backup long snapper Rob Ninkovich was practicing snaps before the game.

Also inactive for New England were cornerback Malcolm Butler, running back James White, linebacker Chris White, guard Jordan Devey and tackle Cameron Fleming.
