The Packers have said nothing about the status of wide receiver Jordy Nelson other than that he spent the night in the hospital with a rib injury. Now we know that the injury is to ribs, plural, and they’re broken.

Nelson suffered at least two fractured ribs, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The report suggests that Nelson hasn’t been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys but is a long shot to play.

Giants cornerback Leon Hall broke Nelson’s ribs when he lowered the crown of his helmet into Nelson’s body while Nelson was reaching up to try to catch a pass. Although Hall wasn’t flagged, he’s likely to be fined by the NFL.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was outstanding after Nelson left Sunday’s game against the Giants, but losing Nelson would still be a major blow for the Packers against the Cowboys. Nelson led the team with 97 catches for 1,257 yards and 14 touchdowns during the regular season.

This is a spear/an illegal hit. Not sure how it went uncalled. He should be fined for this one.

Yeah, pretty nasty. Apparently, he is still going to try playing Sunday but... I figure he will be just about worthless if he does.

If he can suit up, Dallas still has to cover him. This should open things up for Cobb and Adams.

He's talking about possibly wearing a bulletproof vest for protection. McCarthy says he will be in a rehab group through Friday and if he is going to play Sunday he must practice Saturday. We'll see.

I think this is mostly just to make Dallas prepare for Nelson. It's not impossible for Nelson to suit up but I'd be pretty surprised to see him play Sunday. If he does hats off to him.
