Jordy Nelson entered the postseason as one of, if not, the hottest wide receiver in the NFL (thanks in part to Aaron Rodgers and his hot hand). Nelson ended up catching one pass for 13 yards in the Packers wide card match up before leaving with a rib injury and not returning to the Green Bay win. Today Packers coach Mike McCarthy gave an update on his star receiver.
McCarthy also said of Nelson that he has to practice on Saturday to have any chance at suiting up against the Cowboys in Dallas on Sunday afternoon.
It sounds like a tall order for the Packers to travel to Dallas and beat the Cowboys without Jordy Nelson at their disposal but think about this ...
One more fun-fact: Nelson has missed 20 games since the start of 2012. In those games Aaron Rodgers has throw 39 touchdowns and just 8 interceptions and 4,120 yards while going 14-6.
