NFL Injury Report:
The Green Bay Packers have ruled out wide receiver Jordy
Nelson, linebacker Clay Matthews, running back James Starks and safety Charles
Woodson for Sunday night’s game against the Detroit Lions, reports Tim
Twentyman of Lions.com.
LB Clay Matthews, WR Jordy Nelson, RB James Starks, DB Charles Woodson and DE C.J. Wilson all out Sunday for Packers
— Tim Twentyman (@ttwentyman) December 7, 2012
Starks suffered a knee injury last weekend against the
Minnesota Vikings. After his knee flared up on him Monday it was checked out by
doctors who didn’t like what they saw. Coach Mike McCarthy has since come out
and said that he expects Starks to miss multiple weeks due to the injury.
Matthews and Nelson continue to be sidelined due to
hamstring injuries. Woodson is attempting to return from a broken collarbone,
and he’ll be out another week due to the injury.
Beyond Nelson, Matthews, Starks and Woodson, the Packers
have also ruled defensive lineman C.J. Wilson out due to a knee injury.

Packers linebacker Clay Matthews will miss his fifth consecutive game Sunday against Detroit.

Packers running back James Starks (knee) will miss "multiple weeks," according to coach Mike McCarthy. SOURCE: Tyler Dunne, Milwaukee Journal-SentinelFantasy Spin:Starks injured his knee Sunday versus the Vikings. The Packers re-signed Ryan Grant, but we suspect that move was made only because he's familiar with the system; Grant was released by Washington earlier this...
Packers receiver Jordy Nelson missed every practice this week and is out for Week 14 against Detroit.Fantasy Spin:Green Bay has plenty of depth in the receiving corps, particularly with the return of Greg Jennings, so this injury shouldn't affect Aaron Rodgers' performance too drastically - just Nelson's fantasy owners.
Mike McCarthy likes the forecast for Sunday night.
''Well, we live in Green Bay, Wisconsin, so snow's going to happen,'' the Packers coach said Friday. ''I hope it does snow. I think it'd be great. It's a great setting. Personally, I think snow's fun to play in, so I think our players will enjoy it.''
