Green Bay - Here are the game-day in-actives for the Packers-Jaguars game:PACKERSWR Jordy NelsonFB John KuhnCB Sam ShieldsLB Nick PerryWR Greg JenningsS Charles WoodsonANALYSIS: The Packers weren't going to take any chances with Nelson (hamstring), especially with the 1-5 Jaguars coming in. They left open a small window of opportunity for him to come back after he pulled his hamstring Wednesday in practice and decided it wasn't worth putting him on the field. With both he and Jennings out, expect TE Jermichael Finley to receive a lot of double coverage and WR Randall Cobb to be shadowed . This should be a big opportunity for rookie WR Jarrett Boykin to show what he's got. We will also see just what old reliable Donald Driver has left. He should get a lot of snaps. This indeed will be a huge test of the Packers depth at receiver. Also, Johnny White will be the No. 3 back behind Alex Green and James Starks with Kuhn (hamstring) out. Rookie C Greg Van Roten is active this ...

Running back James Starks has only six carries in the past three games
While Alex Green has averaged a pathetic 2.4 yards per carry in the past three games, a now healthy James Starks has carried the ball a total of six times. And five of those six carries came in garbage time against Houston. People can blame the offensive line all they want, but I blame Mike McCarthy. There’s...
The Green Bay Packers will already be without several
high-profile players during today’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and
Peter King of Sports Illustrated reports wide receiver Jordy Nelson is also
unlikely to suit up.

but SI's Peter King believes the wide receiver is unlikely to play against the
GREEN BAY, Wis. It had been more than 20 years since the Packers blocked a punt for a touchdown prior to Sunday's game. Apparently, all it took to end that drought was having only 10 players on the field.
In Green Bay's 25-14 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, the key play of the game came in the second quarter when cornerback Davon House sprinted off the left edge to block...
I’m not a Green Bay Packers fan, but I’ve always respected the franchise. I’ve also always thought the Lambeau Leap was a fantastic tradition that connected the players on the team to the die-hard fans closest to the action on the field.
On Sunday, Donald Driver – easily one of the most likable players in the entire NFL – scored a touchdown with 12:36 remaining in Green...
The Green Bay Packers will be hosting the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday afternoon, but they will likely be without their leading receiver, Jordy Nelson. Nelson has not practiced this week while he is dealing with a hamstring injury. Reports suggest that Nelson will test his hamstring prior to game time, but is likely to go this afternoon.

The beat-up Packers struggled on offense without receivers Jordy Nelson and Greg Jennings. The defense, however, held firm in the second half.
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It was an ugly win for the Packers. Or, in Jermichael Finleys words, a real nasty win. It wasnt the type of game that the team will look back on with pride, but Green Bay (now 5-3) hit the midway point of its season with its third consecutive victory.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers insisted they didn't take the downtrodden Jacksonville Jaguars lightly. They also blew off any suggestion that a rash of injuries impacted a mundane performance Sunday. No matter the reason, the Packers struggled to put away the Jaguars, escaping with a 24-15 victory at Lambeau Field. "I don't really think it's something...
The Jacksonville Jaguars lost to the Green Bay Packers 24-15. The Jaguars went into the confines of Lambeau Field and emerged not victorious, but not demoralized either.

While the Packers' offense is known for Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, James Jones, Donald Driver and Greg Jennings...
