Tight end Jerell Adams is inactive for the New York Giants in Sunday's Wild-Card playoff game against the Green Bay Packers, the biggest surprise among the list announced by the Giants. Adams missed last week's regular-season finale with a shoulder injury, but practiced on a limited basis this week. Without Adams, veteran Larry Donnell becomes the Giants' second tight end. Adams took over that role from Donnell at midseason.

In a lineup change, Marshall Newhouse will start at right tackle in place of Bobby Hart.

For the Packers, the big news is that wide receiver Randall Cobb will return to action.

The Giants and Packers will kick off from Lambeau Field at 4:40 p.m. ET.
