Packers deactivations and chat reminder

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers' list of game-day deactivations included a couple of interesting names. Tight end D.J. Williams, defensive end Phillip Merling and running back James Starks are all healthy scratches for this game.

Starks (toe) was probable for the game from a health standpoint, but he is going to have to earn a spot on the Packers' game-day depth chart.

Remember, I plan to spend most of Sunday's game over in our NFL Countdown Live chat. I'll post blog items only if something really, really crazy happens.
