GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson has officially been listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.Nelson injured his hamstring Wednesday and was unable to practice Thursday and Friday. Coach Mike McCarthy said that Nelson would have to pass a series of tests from the medical staff in order to be cleared. Nelson was listed as questionable heading into the game.Nelson leads the team in receptions and yards this season.Green Bay is now without both of its top receivers, as Greg Jennings announced earlier this week that he's opting for surgery to repair his rectus abdominis tear. Jennings still expects to return this season following surgery.With Nelson and Jennings out, that leaves receivers Randall Cobb and James Jones as the Packers' starters for Sunday's Noon kickoff. But that is still a pretty good one-two punch for quarterback Aaron Rodgers to throw to. Jones had three consecutive games this season with at least two touchdown catches. Two weeks ago, Cobb had his first career 100-yard receiving game and followed it up with his first game with two touchdown receptions.Green Bay's injury list is growing fast. Veteran defensive back Charles Woodson is inactive with a broken collarbone (out approximately six weeks), starting outside linebacker Nick Perry (knee) and starting cornerback Sam Shields (ankle) are both out for a second straight week, and fullback John Kuhn is unavailable due to a hamstring injury.Nose tackle B.J. Raji, who missed the past two games with an ankle injury, is active and will play in Sunday's game.
