Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson was inactive against the Tennessee Titans but coach Mike McCarthy said Monday he was hopeful Nelson could return for Week 17. Nelson has now missed three straight games for Green Bay because of a hamstring injury.
The Packers beat the Titans 55-7 and needs another win in Week 17 against the Minnesota Vikings to secure a bye in the first round of the NFC playoffs.
Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners also hoping for Nelson to return in Week 17 will just have to wait. He hasn't practiced recently and his last catch came in Week 13.
Nelson has been a disappointment for fantasy owners this season but could warrant flex consideration in deeper leagues if he returns for Week 17.
