GREEN BAY, Wis. -

The Green Bay Packers activated linebacker Frank Zombo from the physically unable to perform list Saturday, a day before their game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Zombo missed the first eight games with a hamstring injury. He returned to practice last month, and the Packers had to decide by next Wednesday whether to activate him or not. Zombo said earlier this week he hoped he'd be activated, saying "it sure would be pretty special to run out on Lambeau again and head into the bye week with a game under my belt."

Zombo played in 18 games, making nine starts, in his first two years with the Packers.

The Packers only had 52 players on their active roster, so they did not need to make a corresponding move to activate Zombo.
