Packers S Bigby active, but not starting

Green Bay Packers safety Atari Bigby was active for Sunday

night’s game against the Dallas Cowboys after missing the first

eight weeks following left ankle surgery in the offseason.

Bigby was not in the starting lineup. He has played in 42 games

with 33 starts in his first five years in Green Bay.

The Packers have 10 players on injured reserve and are missing

five starters for the season.

Starting wide receiver Donald Driver (quadriceps) and right

tackle Mark Tauscher (shoulder) were also inactive. Rookie

offensive lineman Bryan Bulaga and receiver Jordy Nelson were in

the lineup instead.

Dallas is without quarterback Tony Romo (collarbone) for the

second straight game. Romo is expected to miss at least the next

month.
