The Green Bay Packers have ruled several players, including wide
receiver Greg Jennings (groin) and fullback John Kuhn (hamstring), out for Sunday’s
matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars. One other key player is considered a
game-time decision; wide receiver Jordy Nelson (hamstring), according to ESPN Milwaukee.
McCarthy said Nelson was
examined by team physician Dr. Pat McKenzie on Friday morning but did not
divulge how the exam went. Kuhn was also examined, and his apparently did not
go very well.
The other Packers’ players that are listed as out include
safety Charles Woodson (collarbone), linebacker Nick Perry (knee) and
cornerback Sam Shields (ankle). Green Bay is expecting to get defensive tackle
B.J. Raji (ankle) back, and tight end Jermichael Finley (shoulder), center Jeff
Saturday (neck), offensive lineman T.J. Lang (elbow/wrist) and wide receiver
Donald Driver (neck) are all listed as probable for Sunday.
