Green Bay wideout Jordy Nelson was not practicing Wednesday, according to an Adam Schein report, but the plan is for him to give it a try on Thursday.Fantasy Spin:Nelson should be better this weekend than last, when he caught three balls for 51 yards, primarily during the last drive before half-time. Nelson is obviously not 100 percent and the Packers have enough talent that he might only be Aaron Rodgers' fourth-best target at this time.

Dolphins Will Target Greg Jennings In Free Agency

Valyncia Jennings is the sister of Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings, an Aaron Rodgers hater, and down right rude on twitter. Could she be able to tell the future also.  During her twitter rant in which she bashed Aaron Rodgers, and called him overrated, she also hinted at Jennings taking his talents to South Beach.   Does she know something we don’t, did she and her brother...

Experience gap wide between Rodgers, Kaepernick

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Aaron Rodgers knows the Packers aren't going to advance to the NFC Championship Game without him performing at the elite level he's capable of. That's fine by him. In fact, the star quarterback and league's reigning Most Valuable Player embraces that role. "Guys are counting on me to play well," Rodgers said this week. "I take that...

James Starks Questionable For Saturday

Green Bay halfback James Starks is questionable for Saturday's game in San Francisco. Starks has missed the Packers' last five games with a knee bruise.Fantasy Spin:DuJuan Harris has been getting most of the reps at halfback in Starks' absence. We don't think either player will be a factor Saturday against the 49ers' fourth-ranked run defense.

Rodgers back in Bay Area with Packers for playoffs

The anxiety-filled green room and draft day seem so long ago now to Aaron Rodgers. Still, on this weekend, any lingering feelings of frustration about how far he dropped will be directed right at the team that passed him up with the No. 1 pick nearly eight years ago. Rodgers brings the high-scoring Green Bay Packers (12-5) to Candlestick Park on Saturday to face No. 2 seed San...

Packers put substance ahead of style on defense

The Green Bay Packers could have filled an entire highlight reel with their interceptions last year. Good thing, because the rest of their defense wasn't worth watching. A year after finishing with the NFL's worst defense, the Packers have traded the excitement of those big turnovers for consistency. And the change could be the difference between another early exit from...

Jermichael Finley Practicing

He dealt with cramping in his hamstring during the team's Wild Card victory over Minnesota on Saturday.Fantasy Spin:Finley only caught one pass for 10 yards in the game but also dropped a touchdown pass. The tight end averaged 56.6 yards over the final seven games this season but he's really just the fourth or fifth...

Defense Gains Without Takeaways

The Packers' defense made leaps-and-bounds improvements after setting records (good and bad) in 2011. They did it even while missing Charles Woodson, Clay Matthews and C.J. Wilson for large chunks of the season.

Packers aim to match 49ers' physicality

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The physicality of the San Francisco 49ers cannot be questioned. With a defense that ranked second this season in points allowed and third in yards allowed, the 49ers have one of the NFL's elite groups. The Green Bay Packers, on the other hand, are getting plenty of those questions leading into Saturday night's divisional round playoff game. It's been...

Green Bay's new and improved OL gets biggest test

(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By NANCY ARMOUR AP National Writer Milk bottles in carnival games are meant to be knocked down. MVP quarterbacks are not. Green Bay's offensive line has had its hands full this season as it has tried, often unsuccessfully, to keep Aaron Rodgers from looking like a tackling dummy, and it doesn't figure to get any easier in Saturday night&...

Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers: 5 Things We Learned

Beating a division team two weeks in a row is even tougher.Beating a division team...

Twitter Campaign Works: Peterson Calls Ailing Teen

Just two days after losing to their arch rival, the Green Bay Packers in the wild card round of the playoffs, and just 8 days after coming up 9 yards short of breaking Eric Dickerson’s single season rushing record, Adrian Peterson found a way to put others first. On Monday Peterson, who is well know throughout the league as an up standing citizen and moral person, made a very important...

Packers get second shot at San Francisco

Aaron Rodgers was "disappointed," "disappointed," "mad" and "disappointed" some more. The quarterback said so himself in just his first few remarks to reporters in the Packers' media auditorium at Lambeau Field in the early evening of Sept. 9, a short time after they lost 30-22 to the San Francisco 49ers. This was not the start to the...
