Wide receivers Sidney Rice and Bernard Berrian are both active for today's game against the Packers.

Rice will make his 2010 debut after returning from hip surgery. The Pro Bowl receiver was activated from the physically unable to perform list on Saturday. 

Berrian was listed as questionable because of a groin injury. Berrian tested his groin during early warmups with wide receivers coach George Stewart while coach Brad Childress and head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman watched. The Vikings didn't want to have a repeat of last week when Berrian told Childress that he couldn't play after the deadline for declaring inactives.

The rest of the Vikings inactives are wide receiver Hank Baskett, cornerback Lito Sheppard, running back Albert Young, safety Eric Frampton, linebacker Erin Henderson, offensive guard Chris DeGeare and defensive tackle Fred Evans. Joe Webb is the No. 3 quarterback.

Frampton was ruled out Friday after injuring his hamstring covering a punt last Sunday at Chicago.

Center John Sullivan (calf) and right guard Anthony Herrera (elbow) were both questionable, but both will start.

The Vikings announced no starter changes so that means Asher Allen is expected to start at right cornerback. Rookie Chris Cook will play left corner in nickel situations.

The Packers inactives are cornerback Brandon Underwood, fullback Korey Hall, tight end Spencer Havner, running back James Starks, linebacker Diyral Briggs, offensive linemen Nick McDonald and Marshall Newhouse and defensive end Jarius Wynn.
