Hamstring injury can't keep Vikings WR Berrian out vs. Packers

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Bernard Berrian is active for Sunday's game despite a nagging hamstring injury, giving quarterback Brett Favre one of his top targets against his former team.

As expected, Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield was inactive against the Green Bay Packers because of a right foot injury.

Tight end Jermichael Finley was inactive for the Packers because of a knee injury. Finley caught six passes for 128 yards and one touchdown in Green Bay's 30-23 loss at Minnesota on Oct. 5.

The Packers will be without center Jason Spitz because of a lower back injury, but left tackle Chad Clifton was active despite a nagging right ankle injury and was listed in the starting lineup.

Two of the Packers' midseason veteran signings, offensive lineman Mark Tauscher and running back Ahman Green, were active for Green Bay in reserve roles.
