Jordy Nelson inactive for SNF, remove from fantasy lineups

Rich Schultz

Jordy Nelson is officially inactive for Sunday Night with a bothersome hamstring injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring) is officially inactive for Sunday Night Football against the Detroit Lions. Nelson has already been ruled out earlier in the week, so this news is just confirmation. Nelson has been dealing with a hamstring issue for most of the season--he already missed two games earlier--and is still not able to practice.

Nelson has 46 catches for 658 yards and six TDs on the season.

Fantasy Impact: The Packers will roll with Randall Cobb, Greg Jennings and James Jones as the starters. There's still no concrete timetable for Nelson's return, and re-draft owners can't afford to burn a roster spot during the fantasy playoffs.

We'll know more about his status later this week.
