Tauscher suffered a severe groin injury in early November at Minnesota. After five weeks of rehabbing the injury, Tauscher will return against the Vikings tonight.
The Packers and Vikings are both 6-8 on the season. Neither team has protected its home field very well. The Packers won the first meeting this season back on November 12th at the Metrodome, while Minnesota has won 3 of the last 4 games played at Lambeau Field.
Both teams must win out just to have a shot at the post season NFL playoffs.
