A.J. Hawk active but didn't start

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Hi everyone. That was some start to Week 14 here in the NFC North, huh?

A reminder and an update:

  • I'll be spending most of the afternoon/early evening over in our NFL Countdown Live chat. Please join me.

  • Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk (calf) is active for this game, but to this point the Packers are using D.J. Smith and Robert Francois as their inside linebackers.
