Packers OLB Jones to start vs. Giants

Brad Jones will start at right outside linebacker for the Green

Bay Packers in Sunday’s divisional playoff game against the New

York Giants at Lambeau Field.

The Packers have struggled to find a consistent outside

linebacker to start opposite Clay Matthews. Erik Walden started

there for most of the season, and Frank Zombo was the starter in

the Packers’ regular season finale against Detroit.

Walden and Zombo both are expected to get playing time as the

Packers rotate players.

Another option at outside linebacker, Vic So’oto, was inactive

for Sunday’s game. Defensive lineman Howard Green also was inactive

for the Packers.

For the Giants, fullback Henry Hynoski will start in place of

Bear Pascoe.
