The Packers aren’t ruling any of their injured wide receivers out for Sunday’s game against the Falcons, but they know that they may need to go without one or all of Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison.

All three players were listed as out of practice on Friday — it was an estimation as the Packers will work out on Saturday — as Nelson fell ill after working two days in an attempt to return from broken ribs. Adams, who has an ankle injury, and Allison, who is dealing with a hamstring issue, missed all three days and coach Mike McCarthy said Friday that the team will go as long as they need to before making a decision about their status for the NFC title game.

“I’m going to give these guys the open time frame to do everything they can to play. Maybe one or two of those guys will have to work Sunday before the game,” McCarthy said, via USA Today.

Safety Morgan Burnett was listed as a limited participant in practice Friday, the first time he’s been listed as anything but out since injuring his quadricep against the Cowboys. He’s been listed as questionable along with cornerback Quinten Rollins, who was limited all week with the neck injury and concussion that kept him out the last two weeks.

The Falcons got wide receiver Julio Jones back at practice Friday and, as coach Dan Quinn said earlier in the day, have no players on the active roster with injuries that will keep them from playing on Sunday.

  1. The Packers’ chance of winning is questionable at best with all these injuries playing against the ATL offense.

  2. The Pack will win or lose with whoever can play. It’s never been any different.

    Viking trolls….save your “excuse-baiting” hate for your own team.

  3. so that leaves who, Cobb, Janis and Cook? Split Montomgery back outside with “here’s my best interpretation of a deflating balloon” Christine Michael in the backfield? Good grief. Hope they can play.

  4. So the Green & Gold Death Star is far from 100% for Sunday. If they were, Atlanta wouldn’t stand a chance. As it is, it will be a competitive game. Look at the teams that are left. GB, NE, and PIT, three seasoned playoff teams. And the babe in the woods, ATLANTA, who has about as much playoff experience as Trump has as President.

  5. If the Packers somehow pull out this win it will be one of the greatest wins in recent postseason history. To go into the game with 1 healthy slot receiver, a second-tier TE and a WR that is more of a special teams player than a WR, and a runningback that started as a WR just a few weeks ago and a QB that’s been carrying them all postseason suddenly sick with the flu…

    Atlanta had better win. The win is basically being served to them on a silver platter.

  6. Like other die hard yet realistic Packer fans, I see a hobbled Adams, a gimpy Bulaga, a Nelson who at best would be,a decoy if he suited up, a Janis with iffy hands who is too mentally challenged to learn more than two routes, etc., etc. So I simply do not think Rodgers will have enough healthy weapons this time around for him to carry the team to victory, no matter how great he is playing. If the Packers were to somehow win this game, the only way I can see it possibly happening is a repeat of what happened when they beat Seattle this year: the defense will give lots of yards, but somehow gets like 4 or 5 turnovers at key times when Atlanta is on the verge of scoring, and throw in a strip-sack-run for a TD by Matthews, or Peppars, or whomever.

    Such a scenario is highly unlikely to happen, but if I’m Capers, I’m coordinating a defensive gameplan with plenty of such trickery in terms of stunts, goofy looks which is typical of a Capers defense.

    Most seem to think that if the Packers are to have a chance, it will fall on Rodgers arm and legs. That was the case against Dallas, but it wont be so this game against an awesome Atlanta team who is my pick to win it all. If my Packers are to have any chance, it will fall on Capers and the defense to somehow create a sufficient number of turnovers, and for RBs Michael and Montgomery to have the game of their lives in terms of running the ball and catching dink and dunks in the flat for big gains. The Packer’s passing offense is too weakened by injuries to win this one on their own. I hope I’m wrong and eat a years worth of crow, but thats how I see it.

  7. As Falcon Fan, I’m going to let everyone know bypass this article. Aaron Rodgers can turn anyone into a star. I STILL remember when I was like ” who is Jordy Nelson?!” The rest is history. You got Aaron Rodgers be re ready for a battle. Go Falcons #RiseUp

  8. I just LOVE how everyone read the word “questionable” as meaning “Out”… If you really think that Adams and Allison won’t play, please pass the blunt… It not just here, but every article everywhere sensationalizes this story. Adams, Allison and Jordy being “questionable” does not equal “out”, nor does it mean that Cobb and Cook will carry the load. Get real!
