Green Bay Packers receiver Jordy Nelson is back in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. Nelson has picked up much of the slack with No. 1 receiver Greg Jennings out, with 40 catches for 532 yards receiving and five touchdowns. But he was inactive last week and didn't practice much of this week because of a hamstring injury. Jennings was inactive again Sunday after surgery this week to repair a torn abdominal muscle. Green Bay's other inactives are safety Charles Woodson (broken collarbone); fullback John Kuhn; cornerback Sam Shields; linebacker Nick Perry; and defensive end Jerel Worthy. Linebacker Frank Zombo, activated from the physically unable to perform list Saturday, also is inactive. Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb is inactive again, as are receiver LaRon Byrd, cornerback Greg Toler, linebacker Jamaal Westerman, tight end Todd Heap and guards Senio Kelemete and Adam Snyder. --- Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL
