GREEN BAY, Wis. -- In what could be the final game for Donald Driver at Lambeau Field, the Packers' all-time leading receiver is inactive for Saturday night's playoff game against the Minnesota Vikings. Driver, a seventh-round pick by Green Bay in 1999, has 743 receptions, 10,137 receiving yards and 61 touchdowns in his 14-year career. Driver signed a restructured one-year deal with the Packers this past offseason, soon after winning "Dancing with the Stars." Driver battled a thumb injury late this season, but he has not been on the injury report at all since mid-December. Therefore, this decision by Packers coach Mike McCarthy to not have Driver active is strictly based on talent. In the 13 regular-season games that Driver was active for this year, he had only eight catches for 77 yards and two touchdowns. The rest of Green Bay's inactive list for Saturday night's game is: wide receiver Jarrett Boykin (ankle), cornerback Davon House (hip), running back James Starks (knee), linebacker Frank Zombo (no injury), defensive tackle Jordan Miler (no injury) and defensive end Jerel Worthy (knee).
