Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle, questionable) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring, questionable) missed practice all week and are questionable for Week 20. Jordy Nelson (ribs, questionable) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is questionable for Week 20. All three players are game-time decisions. Adams and Allison are expected to play, and Nelson is apparently trending up.

Packers WR Jeff Janis (quadricep) took full practice reps again Friday. Janis may see more snaps with the GB receiving corps extremely banged up.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week. HC Dan Quinn said Jones “looked good” on Friday and “won’t have any limitations” on Sunday. His toe injury is a concern, but he has a great matchup against the Packers.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy described WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) as practicing yesterday more than anticipated. Sounds relatively optimistic.

Related players: Davante Adams, Geronimo Allison, Randall Cobb, Jeff Janis, Trevor Davis

Fantasy Impact:

Randall Cobb is the only healthy receiver of the Packers' top four wideouts. Nelson, Adams and Allison will be game-time decisions for a likely shootout against the Falcons.

Packers RB James Starks (concussion, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 19.

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.

Friday, January 13, 2017, 8:14pm

Packers WR Jeff Janis (quadricep, questionable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 19. Geronimo Allison is the better play with Jordy Nelson sidelined and Janis dinged up. He’s a tournament play only.

Friday, January 13, 2017, 8:14pm

Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 19. With Nelson out, Geronimo Allison will likely pick up most of his snaps. He played 58% of the snaps against the Giants, and had a quiet game, but that was with Nelson playing 23% of the snaps. In the two previous games, with Randall Cobb sidelined, Allison played 73% and 81% of the snaps, posting 4-66 (on seven targets) against the Vikings and 4-91-1 (on six targets) against the Lions.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy says WR Jordy Nelson, who has multiple rib fractures, will be out for Sunday’s game vs. Cowboys.

Related players: Geronimo Allison, Davante Adams, Randall Cobb, Jeff Janis

Fantasy Impact:

Geronimo Allison will likely pick up most of his snaps. He played 58% of the snaps against the Giants, and had a quiet game, but that was with Nelson playing 23% of the snaps.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson fractured 'at least two' ribs, status uncertain

Monday, January 9, 2017, 6:38pm

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Jordy Nelson's status Sunday's game against the Cowboys does not look good.

The wide out suffered at least two fractured ribs in their wild-card win over the Giants, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Rapoport adds it will take a tremendous effort for Nelson to play.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy told reporters earlier Monday that his star wide receiver has a shot to suit up for this Sunday's NFC divisional-round tilt with the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact:

If Nelson can't play, Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison will pick up the slack. If Nelson does play, we wouldn't expect a full complement of snaps.

Packers have 'concern' for Jordy Nelson (ribs)

Monday, January 9, 2017, 10:32am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Green Bay Packers receiver Jordy Nelson was knocked out of Sunday's wild-card win against the New York Giants with a rib injury in the second quarter.

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."

Fantasy Impact:

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.
