Seattle Seahawks left tackle Duane Brown is playing in Sunday's NFC division playoff game against the Green Bay Packers after missing the past three games following knee surgery.

Brown returned to practice on Friday and coach Pete Carroll indicated a decision would be made prior to Sunday's contest.

Offensive tackle George Fant (groin) also is active for the Seahawks but starting left guard Mike Iupati (neck) will miss second straight game.

Defensive end Ziggy Ansah (neck) and safety Marquise Blair (ankle) were among Seattle's other inactives.

For the Packers, right tackle Brian Bulaga (illness) is active despite being added to the injury report on Sunday and listed as questionable. Nose tackle Kenny Clark (back) also will play.

Green Bay fullback Danny Vitale (knee, illness) will miss his second straight game.
