Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle) took full practice reps all week. Cobb is coming off of a stellar 5-116-3 (7) effort against the Giants in the Wildcard Round. With Jordy Nelson out, he should see plenty of quality targets from Aaron Rodgers.
While Packers coach Mike McCarthy did not say whether Nelson broke any ribs, there was concern after the game that the injury might keep Nelson out of next Sunday's divisional playoff game against the Cowboys.
"I obviously have concern for Jordy," McCarthy said. "I don't have the information yet."
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers said "it would be a huge loss for us" if Nelson were unable to play.
"But [Geronimo Allison] has been playing a lot for us and he's been playing effectively," Rodgers said. "Randall [Cobb] being back healthy -- you know I said this week in my press conference we're better with 18 [Cobb's jersey number] on the field. And he showed it tonight, made a ton of plays for us. He was excellent. And having him out there is going to help. But you know Geronimo is going to have to step up and play extended time if Jordy is going to be out."
If Nelson is out versus Dallas (which looks likely), Allison will pick up most of his snaps. The Jeff Janis truthers will have to hope for another injury or two.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (calf, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 15. Rodgers will be out there in a must-win game against the Bears, but he won’t have full mobility. He didn’t practice at all this week, which is a little worrisome. But this is Aaron Rodgers and the Bears that we’re talking about.

He told FOX’s Erin Andrews after the game that he injured his calf on the first third down play of the game, and that he believes it happened due to compensating for a hamstring he injured 13 days ago against the Eagles.
Rodgers added he has a long week of recovery ahead before taking on the Bears. One would think Rodgers would play but it's worth monitoring this week.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 13. Rodgers is fully expected to play, but he may not be as explosive as usual as a runner in Week 13.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (hamstring) took limited practice reps Wednesday. The Packers conducted a walkthrough on Wednesday, so his status is unclear, though it looks like he’ll be fine to play. He may not be as explosive as usual as a runner in Week 13.
