Sack master Abraham returns for Falcons

The good news for the Falcons is bad news for Packers QB Aaron Rodgers.

Veteran DE John Abraham, who leads the Falcons with eight sacks this season, is active for Sunday’s NFC showdown with the Packers after a groin injury sidelined him in the previous game. Lawrence Sidbury, who started in Abraham’s place against the Rams last week, is inactive.

The Packers had a surprise lineup change, choosing to start rookie Andrew Quarless at tight end and make Donald Lee inactive. Lee wasn’t included on the injury report that the team released Friday.

Full inactives list:

Packers
DB Atari Bigby
DB Anthony Smith
RB James Starks
LB Diyral Briggs
G Nick McDonald

TE Donald Lee
DE Jarius Wynn

Falcons
John Parker Wilson (No. 3 QB)
