Jordy Nelson injury: Packers WR not practicing

Doug Pensinger

A plague of injuries has hit the Green Bay Packers' wide receiving corp, as Jordy Nelson may be questionable for Sunday.

Green Bay Packers' wide receiver Jordy Nelson has not been practicing and is questionable to play this Sunday, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

The Packers are preparing to host the Jacksonville Jaguars and may have to do so without Nelson, who is trying to work through tightness and soreness in his hamstring. Nelson, the 6'3 receiver out of Kansas State, is the team's leading receiver with 532 yards on 40 receptions.

The team "will probably test [Nelson] either Saturday or Sunday," according to head coach Mike McCarthy. The problems come just after two particularly productive games for Nelson. In wins against the Houston Texans and St. Louis Rams, Nelson hauled in a combined 243 yards and four touchdowns.

Nelson's status comes shortly after it was announced fellow receiver Greg Jennings will undergo surgery to repair and abdominal muscle tear. In the absences of Nelson and Jennings, the Packers will start Randall Cobb and James Jones, who are second and third in receiving yards for the team.
