Jordy Nelson injury: Fantasy status hazy after missing practice Wednesday

Jordy Nelson missed practice Wednesday for the Packers due to a hamstring injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jordy Nelson missed practice Wednesday for the Green Bay Packers due to his nagging hamstring injury, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Nelson aggravated the injury during the Packers' win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13.

Nelson's status for Week 14 against the Detroit Lions is still unclear. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that the wide receiver would be "pressed" to suit up, suggesting that he is questionable at best.

Fantasy Impact: Owners will be keeping a sharp eye on injury reports throughout the week. At the moment, it looks like Nelson will likely sit, but that could change quickly if he is able to practice Thursday and/or Friday.

If he does sit, Greg Jennings should receive a significant fantasy boost. James Jones is worth targeting, too, but he is a much riskier start. He had just two receptions last week, albeit with a touchdown.
