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).
