Packers WR Jordy Nelson reportedly has at least two fractured ribs

Jordy Nelson hurt during Packers vs. Giants playoff game

The Cowboys divisional round opponent, the Green Bay Packers, are the ones having to answer questions about who will be ready to play on Sunday. He's going to be in the rehab group through Friday. And then Saturday, if he can practice, then he may have a chance. I'll know more probably on Friday. Nelson was driven several yards into the Packers' sideline area, where he was treated for several minutes before being taken to the locker room for further examination and then the hospital. Nelson reportedly has at least two fractured ribs. Packers coach Mike McCarthy wouldn't rule out Nelson on Monday, but that might be more hope and gamesmanship than anything. "It's going to be a huge part of our success Sunday". If he practices at all, it'll only be on Saturday. After eventually being helped to a cart, he still grimaced while being wheeled off the field.

McCarthy said Nelson rejoined the team Monday, getting treatment at its Lambeau Field facilities.

It marked the sixth time in the seven-game winning streak that Rodgers has posted a rating above 100, and he's been above 125 three times in the last four games.

Nelson was injured in the second quarter of Green Bay's Wild Card-round win over the New York Giants.

Nelson took a blow to the side by cornerback Leon Hall early in the 2nd quarter.

I would wager a pretty penny that President Obama will spend equal time praising himself and low-balling his successor. It will be a "serious speech" rather than a "rally", delivered to a sitting audience rather than a standing one.


"No one can really replace what Jordy does and Jordy's production". "We've got to start fast and make them as one-dimensional as possible".

When asked about how this year's offense differs from the one that had to play without Nelson in 2015, McCarthy said the team definitely is better equipped to handle the Pro Bowl receiver's absence due to depth and development of younger playmakers. The fourth-seeded Packers will play at the top-seeded Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

Packers starting linebacker Blake Martinez is listed as hopeful with a knee injury, and running back Ty Montgomery, while expected to be a go, will likely be slowed by an ankle injury.

"We got good news on Blake, so I'm hopeful that he may practice this week", McCarthy said.
