Wide receiver Jordy Nelson sat out a couple of days of practice and quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been under the weather, but the Packers are heading to San Francisco with a roster as healthy as they could probably hope for at this point in the season.
Nelson is one of seven probable members of the Packers on their final injury report of the week, which means he’ll almost certainly be on the field against the 49ers on Saturday. The quality of the field that he’ll be on drew some interest after 49ers kicker Billy Cundiff posted a picture of the shabby looking playing surface on Facebook earlier this week.
“A lot of the grass fields are that way towards the end of the season. It’ll be the same for everyone,” said Nelson, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “You just have to feel it out. In pre-game, make sure you have the right cleats on, what you feel comfortable in. You have to make sure you play fast. I don’t know if it will be all soggy or whatever, and slippery wet. We’ll just have to feel it out. I’ve only been there once. I believe it was my first preseason game, so, different time of the year.”
Rodgers wasn’t listed on the injury report at all as a result of his illness, which is likely a similar strain to the one that kept wide receiver Randall Cobb out of practice earlier this week. Cobb, linebacker Clay Matthews, running back Alex Green, linebacker Dezman Moses, running back James Starks and tight end Jermichael Finley are the other probable Packers.
