GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP)

Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez is active for Sunday's game against the Packers after being limited in practice with a toe injury.

The veteran Gonzalez had been questionable for the game.

For the Packers, center Evan Dietrich-Smith is active after being hobbled the past week with knee and ankle injuries. Backup offensive lineman Marshall Newhouse is out because of illness.

As expected, Matt Flynn is starting at quarterback for Aaron Rodgers, who remains out with a fractured left collarbone. The Packers' other inactives are receiver Chris Harper, running back Kahlil Bell, linebacker Nate Palmer, and defensive linemen C.J. Wilson and Jerel Worthy.

Inactive for Atlanta are running back Josh Vaughn, safety Kemal Ishmael, linebacker Omar Gaither, defensive tackle Travian Robertson, and offensive linemen Harland Gunn, Terren Jones and Sean Locklear.
