Jordy Nelson hospitalized, won’t practice until Saturday at soonest

The rib injury which knocked Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson out of last night’s game sent him to the hospital. In other news, it will keep him off the practice field until at least Saturday.

And if he doesn’t practice then, he’ll miss the Packers’ Divisional Round playoff game against the Cowboys.

If he can practice, then he has a chance,” Packers coach McCarthy said, via Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press Gazette.

McCarthy told reporters that Nelson spent the night at a nearby hospital, but was back at Lambeau Field today. He offered no further detail when asked if Nelson had any internal injuries.

Nelson left last night’s win over the Giants after taking a helmet from Giants cornerback Leon Hall, and quarterback Aaron Rodgers admitted it would be a “huge loss” if Nelson isn’t able to play this week.

Having Randall Cobb back helps, but it obviously puts a huge burden on some young receivers including Geronimo Allison.

  1. Gotta be more than your run of the mill fractured/bruised rib to require an overnight hospital stay. Possible lung or spleen injury.

  2. What a gutty and heroic performance by the injury decimated 13 time World Champions yesterday.

    We all wish Jordy a speedy recovery, and this is another important reminder why it’s so important that Ted provides us with the deepest roster in the NFL.

    It’s as if Viking fans were watching the Packers navigate the treachery of an I35 crossing, waiting for the inevitable collapse that never came

    I suspect you’re a Viking troll, pretending, as many (strangely) do.

    Knock it off. You aren’t funny.

  6. Imagine what an awful life ari must have to constantly come here, knowing he’s going to sound like an idiot and get nothing but scorn, and yet still do it just to get a little attention. Wow.

    Um not sure many coaches are telling players “if he catches it let him go but if he drops it lay the hammer down.”

  10. Get well soon, I wiukd love to see him out there next week, even if he went full Marvin Harrison dropping to the ground or stepping out of bounds after each catch.

    I don’t feel it’s likely though.

    Arianass, How would you know anything about playoff football other than missed kicks? Seriously shut it.

    Another obvious case of the refs favoring Green Bay by refusing to throw a flag when Jordy viciously slammed his ribs into poor Leon Hall’s helmet.

    *************************
    Yes, exactly like the time Fabio speared Bryan Hoyer this year and broke his arm, knocking him out for the year. Like that obvious case of the ref’s favoring Green Bay??

    Yeah Pack fan here but gotta say that was one of the worst posts I’ve seen in a long time. Very classless that tragedy should not be brought up even jokingly.

    Yikes. Get well soon Jordey. Looks like it’s time for Abberdaris too finally prove his worth. He was great for Buckey, I know he has it in him! GO PACK GO

  16. I’m starting to think Ariani might be a Packer fan pretending to be a Viking fan. On the off-chance that I’m wrong, Ariani, please just stop. You’re not helping. Actually, just stop either way.

    I think the fact that he “speared the QBs arm” shows he didn’t have those intentions. the rusher from the opposite side hit Hoyer causing him to get moved into the path Matthews helmet otherwords it would have been a clean shoulder hit.

    The refs missed plenty of calls this weekend, and they will miss plenty more, but people expecting perfection and complaining about it every time an official assignment is released or nit picking every game as if they would do better,should really get over it or stop watching football.

    Which explains precisely why the Packers are in the playoffs and the Barneys aren’t.

  19. Greg Jennings played with a broken leg, you can surely play with internal injuries/broken ribs, c’mon Jordy!

    Time to put da’ team on your back Doe!
