Green Bay Packers
GREEN BAY, Wis. It was only a few weeks ago when Packers coach Mike McCarthy had the difficult decision of selecting which healthy players to make inactive on the team's game-day roster. He won't have that luxury this weekend.
Wide receiver Greg Jennings is awaiting surgery on his rectus abdominis tear and veteran safety Charles Woodson is out at least one month with a broken collarbone, but Green Bay's injury woes don't end there.
The Packers will also enter Sunday's home game against the Jacksonville Jaguars without several other starters. Fullback John Kuhn (hamstring), cornerback Sam Shields (ankle) and outside linebacker Nick Perry (knee) have all officially been ruled out.
It's possible that quarterback Aaron Rodgers won't have wide receiver Jordy Nelson on the field with him, either. Nelson is listed as questionable due to a hamstring injury and did not practice Thursday or Friday.
In order to be cleared for Sunday's game, Nelson will have to pass a series of tests from the team's medical staff a couple hours before the Noon kickoff at Lambeau Field.
The one piece of good news for the Packers was that nose tackle B.J. Raji (ankle) is probable. Raji has missed the past two games, practiced Thursday in pads, but sat out Friday's practice.
"If nothing changes in the next 48 hours, I feel very confident in B.J. playing," McCarthy said.
Rodgers (calf), wide receiver Donald Driver (neck), tight end Jermichael Finley (shoulder), left guard T.J. Lang (elbowwrist), center Jeff Saturday (neck) and running back James Starks (illness) are all probable.

Undrafted, cut twice and having found a "real" job in construction, Brett Goode got a call from the Packers just before 2008 season. One of the most anonymous players on the team, Goode has been rewarded for going unnoticed.
Lethal weapons produce the most impact. Some of the impact is noticeable. Other times the impact is subtle but just as forceful. While the most lethal weapons in the NFL need a little help from their friends, they are pretty darn great all by themselves. Whether they sling the ball, run the ball, kick the ball or strip the ball, all the action is hardly every met by an opposite...
