ATLANTA -- Atlanta Falcons cornerback Brian Williams will miss the NFC divisional playoff game against the Green Bay Packers with an injured left knee.

Williams is inactive after hurting the knee in the regular-season finale against Carolina.

Chris Owens is expected to fill Williams' spot as the team's primary nickel back against the Packers.

The Packers are holding out safety Atari Bigby with a groin injury and fullback Korey Hall with a knee injury. Quinn Johnson is starting for Hall.

Green Bay linebacker Frank Zombo is inactive with a knee injury. Erik Walden is replacing Zombo at outside linebacker.
