For the second straight game, the Green Bay Packers had all three of their quarterbacks active for Sunday's NFC divisional playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers waves to fans after defeating the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field last month.

With Aaron Rodgers still battling a calf injury, the Packers hedged by having Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien both available.

Also active were cornerback Davon House, who hasn't been active since injuring a shoulder against the Atlanta Falcons on Dec. 8, and safety Sean Richardson, who was listed as questionable with a knee injury.

Among the seven inactive players was running back/kick returner DuJuan Harris, who also was inactive in the regular-season finale against Detroit. Replacing him on kickoff returns were expected to be Randall Cobb and/or Micah Hyde.

Other inactives for the Packers were cornerback Demetri Goodson, linebacker Carl Bradford, center Garth Gerhart, tight end Justin Perillo, wide receiver Jeff Janis and defensive tackle Bruce Gaston.

Inactive for the Cowboys was starting right tackle Doug Free with an ankle injury. He was to be replaced in the starting lineup by Jermey Parnell.

Also inactive for Dallas were quarterback Dustin Vaughan, linebacker Keith Smith, linebacker James Anderson, tackle Donald Hawkins, defensive end Kenneth Boatright and defensive tackle Terrell McClain.

The Cowboys had all three starters active who missed practice most of the week, DE Jeremey Mincey, LB Anthony Hitchens and LC Rolando McClain.
