Packers Return to Practice, Vikings Next


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers are back at practice after a bye week.

Green Bay is 6-3 and tied with Chicago atop the NFC North division despite a raft of injuries.

Coach Mike McCarthy is 3-1 in games following the bye week. The Packers would like to bury another division foe, Minnesota, in Sunday's game. The Vikings and former Packers quarterback Brett Favre are 3-6 and in desperate need of a win.

The NFC is wide open. Atlanta has the best record at 7-2, followed by a bunch of teams at 6-3.
