GREEN BAY -- Adrian Peterson and Greg Jennings will play today versus the Packers after being listed as questionable on the final injury report.

Both players said this week that they intended to play and the Vikings made it official when they released their game inactives. Peterson is dealing with a groin injury, while Jennings missed the Seattle game last week because of an Achilles injury.

Defensive end Brian Robison also will play after being listed as questionable because of a neck injury. Robison suffered a muscle spasm in his neck in Thursday's practice and missed practice Friday.

Josh Freeman was declared inactive for the fifth time since joining the team in early October. Matt Cassel will serve as Christian Ponder's backup.

The rest of the Vikings inactives are cornerback Josh Robinson, linebacker Erin Henderson, offensive guard Jeff Baca, tight end Kyle Rudolph, wide receiver Rodney Smith and defensive tackle Chase Baker.

Audie Cole will start at middle linebacker for Henderson. Xavier Rhodes will start in place of Robinson at left cornerback.
