~GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Running back Adrian Peterson and receiver Greg Jennings are active for the Minnesota Vikings against the Packers.
Peterson (groin) was held out of practice two days this week and was listed as questionable for Sunday's game, as was Jennings, who was nursing a sore Achilles tendon. Jennings is returning to Lambeau Field for the first time since signing with Green Bay's NFC North rivals.
Defensive end Brian Robison (neck) and center John Sullivan (concussion) are also active for Minnesota. Both had been listed as questionable.
For the Packers, cornerback Sam Shields will miss a second straight game with a hamstring injury. Scott Tolzien is starting at quarterback for Aaron Rodgers, who will miss a third straight game with a collarbone injury.
