Jordy Nelson (hamstring) very iffy for Sunday

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel - [Full Article]

Packers WR Jordy Nelson sat out Thursday and would not practice again Friday, coach Mike McCarthy said.

You can believe that after seeing Greg Jennings come back too early and aggravate his injury, they won't let Nelson do the same thing. If it's bad enough that he can't practice during the week, it's probably bad enough that he can't play.

"This is really the first time Jordy has dealt with a hamstring," McCarthy said. "We will probably test him either Saturday or Sunday. (That's) what we're looking for."

If Nelson can't play, James Jones and Randall Cobb would be the starters with Donald Driver and rookie Jarrett Boykin the backups.

Fantasy Impact: 

Jones and Cobb are obvious plays, but Driver would be a sneaky start if Nelson can't go.
