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

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.
