It’s going to be a cold one at Lambeau Field tonight when the San Francisco 49ers take on a rested Packers in freezing temperatures. In back to back seasons under the helm of coach LaFleur, Rodgers and the Packers have entered the playoffs as the top seed in the NFC. Unlike last season, this team is looking better overall health-wise and performance-wise. Hopefully the special teams will be at playoff caliber performance.
OLB Za’Darius Smith and OLB Whitney Mercilus have been activated from Injured Reserve this week. Smith played only 18 snaps in week one and has been out since due to back surgery. OT Billy Turner was also active during practice this week.
Also returning is WR Randall Cobb, who was also activated from Injured Reserve. He will be a helpful addition to the the pass game since MVS is not likely to play.
LT David Bakhtiari and CB Jaire Alexander are both listed as questionable. Bakhtiari did manage to play a bit in the previous game, but was only active at practice one day this week.
DL Kingsley Keke was released this week. He was claimed off waivers by the Texans.
