While the Green Bay Packers have ruled linebacker Clay
Matthews and wide receiver Greg Jennings out for Sunday’s contest against the
Detroit Lions, wide receiver Jordy Nelson “appears a safe bet to play,”
according to ESPN Wisconsin.
Matthews (hamstring), Jennings (abdomen) and safety Charles
Woodson (collarbone) will all miss Sunday’s game, but they all aren’t far away
from returning to the field, according to coach Mike McCarthy’s comments
following yesterday’s practice.
Nelson is dealing with hamstring and foot injuries. His
hamstring kept him questionable up until the start of last week’s game, and
while he was able to start the contest he soon exited with a foot injury. His
participation in Wednesday’s practice was limited, but he is expected to suit
up against the Lions.
Others that were limited in practice include tight ends
Andrew Quarless (knee) and Ryan Taylor (chest), cornerback Sam Shields (ankle),
wide receiver Donald Driver (thumb), fullback John Kuhn (hamstring) and
linebacker Terrell Manning (shoulder).
