Two of the top wide receivers in the National Football League are inactive on Sunday, most notably Greg Jennings of the Green Bay Packers and Hakeem Nicks of the New York Giants. Both were ruled "out" by their respective teams on Friday's injury report.

Good news on the "Active" front are the returns of Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall and James Harrison, both of whom will make their 2012 debuts on Sunday. The Steelers will also have safety Troy Polamalu and the Indianapolis Colts will get outside linebacker Dwight Freeney back from an ankle injury.
