Jordy Nelson will be a game-time decision

The Packers are going to give wide receiver Jordy Nelson one more chance to show them his hamstring is well enough for him to play against the Cardinals.

Coach Mike McCarthy said on Friday that Nelson will be a game-time decision after being listed as a non-participant at practice all week. McCarthy said that Nelson did more work than he has at other points this week and the team will see how he responds on Saturday morning before making a final decision on Sunday.

With the bye coming after the game against the Cardinals, the Packers could err for an extra helping of caution in hopes of getting Nelson all the way healthy for the final seven games of the season. They close with five divisional games and a visit to the Giants, so having a healthy Nelson will be even more vital once the team gets back from the bye.

The Packers have another crowded injury report this week with safety Jerron McMillian getting added to the list after his back started bothering him on Friday. He’s listed as questionable while fullback John Kuhn, cornerback Sam Shields and defensive tackle Jerel Worthy ruled out for Week Nine.

    We’ll need Nelson for all those division games coming up so I’m all for sitting him. It’s FINALLY time for our tight ends to step up and contribute against Arizona.

    If it’s that iffy then he shouldn’t play. Rather have him for the last seven games than part of this one.

    If the Packers lose to the Cardinals
    the Gap between Greenbay and Chicago will open. Packers fans will be crying again and Rodgers will throw is team under the next bus he see

    I thought Arizona WAS the bye week.

    Better to hold him out than rush him and lose him for a far longer time.

    He’s the best receiver in the NFL, they’re going to need him especially since he’s A-Rod’s favorite target.
