Jordy Nelson suffered fractured ribs, unlikely to play next weekend

Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy is not tipping his hand, though. Losing Nelson is a blow, but the Packers passing attack continued to hum after he went down in the win against the Giants. Nelson remained down in pain, then was carted off.

Although Nelson's status for Sunday's NFC Divisional playoff game in Dallas remains uncertain, McCarthy said he feels good about the the Packers' other receiving options.

McCarthy says jordy Nelson had rib injury will rehab until Saturday practice. And then Saturday, if he can practice, then he may have a chance.

"We shall see. We shall see what they're going to do", Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr said Tuesday. "I'll probably know more about where Jordy stands on Friday". As is McCarthy's typical policy, he said he would let Nelson tell any specifics.

Nelson suffered the injury in the second quarter, when took a hard shot from Leon Hall as he tried to bring down Aaron Rodgers' sideline pass. And it's possible McCarthy is merely trying to keep the Cowboys guessing on Nelson's availability. Even with Nelson in the lineup, Dallas handily beat Green Bay when the two team's played in the regular season.

"We've got to start faster", Rodgers said. "But Geronimo (Allison) has been playing a lot for us and he's been playing effectively".

"We're going to line up and play Green Bay Packer football". "He was excellent. And, having him out there is going to help. But Geronimo is going to have to step up and play extended time if Jordy is going to be out".

Adams caught 45 of his 75 passes outside the numbers, which tied for 11th in the league, and Adams' yards per catch on those receptions (13.7) actually was higher than Nelson's (11.7).

Speculation is rampant that star receiver Jordy Nelson (NFL-best 14 touchdowns) could miss what's left of the postseason for red-hot Green Bay.

But, for now, we'll just have to wait on the official word as to whether or not they'll have to worry about that this week.
