It’s going to be chilly tonight at Lambeau Field when the San Francisco 49ers take on a rested Packers in freezing temperatures. In consecutive seasons under Coach LaFleur, Rodgers and the Packers entered the playoffs as the NFC’s top seed. Unlike last season, this team looks better in terms of health and performance. Hopefully the special teams will live up to the playoff performances.
OLB Za’Darius Smith and OLB Whitney Mercilus were activated from injured reserve this week. Smith only played 18 snaps in the first week and has been out ever since due to back surgery. OT Billy Turner was also active during practice this week.
Also back is WR Randall Cobb, who was also activated from injured reserve. He will be a useful addition to the passing game as MVS is unlikely to play.
LT David Bakhtiari and CB Jaire Alexander are both listed as questionable. Bakhtiari managed to play a bit in the previous match but was only active in training one day this week.
DL Kingsley Keke was released this week. He was claimed on waivers by the Texans.
