Giants CB Ross recovers from concussion, active vs. Packers

One week after sustaining a concussion during a wild-card win over the Atlanta Falcons, New York Giants cornerback Aaron Ross will play in Sunday's divisional-round game against the Green Bay Packers.

Ross received medical clearance to return to the field Wednesday and was listed as probable on Friday's injury report.

Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw (foot), safety Deon Grant (quadriceps), defensive end Osi Umenyiora (ankle) and cornerback Corey Webster (hamstring) also are active, as expected. All were listed as probable.

The Giants also will start fullback Henry Hynoski in place of Bear Pascoe.

The Giants deactivated wide receiver Ramses Barden, running back Da'rel Scott, linebacker Mark Herzlich, center Jim Cordle, defensive end Justin Trattou, defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy and offensive tackle James Brewer.

The Packers will welcome back two of their top skill players Sunday, as wide receiver Greg Jennings (knee) is active for the first time since he went down against the Oakland Raiders in Week 14 and running back James Starks (ankle) will play for the first time since Week 16.

Brad Jones will start at right outside linebacker for the Packers in place of Frank Zombo, who was the starter in the regular-season finale against the Detroit Lions. Erik Walden started for most of the season.

The Packers held out quarterback Graham Harrell, cornerback Davon Harris, linebacker Robert Francois, offensive tackle Herb Taylor, wide receiver D.J. Williams, nose tackle Howard Green and linebacker Vic So'oto.
