Green Bay Packer nose tackle Gilbert Brown, whose 345-pound frame is a formidable obstacle for running backs, was declared inactive for today's game against the Carolina Panthers. Brown will rest sore ankles. Joining Brown on the inactive list are wide receiver Derrick Mayes, tight end Jeff Thomason and offensive guard Joe Andruzzi. The game is key for the Packers because home-field advantage in the playoffs is undecided.

Before Oregon tight end Jeff Thomason graduated from Corona del Mar High School, he was recruited by Arizona and USC--as a swimmer. Thomason was ranked among the top 30 in the nation in the 50- and 100-yard freestyle events. "When I was young, I wanted to swim at UCLA, but they said they couldn't offer me a scholarship," Thomason said. So, Thomason will play football against UCLA, instead, on Saturday at Eugene, Ore.
