Don’t count out Jordy Nelson just yet.
Nelson spent Sunday night in the hospital after taking a vicious shot to the ribs from Giants cornerback Leon Hall in the first half of Green Bay’s 38-13 win over New York. The All-Pro pass-catcher will work this week with the team’s rehab group, per McCarthy. If Nelson can practice successfully on Saturday, the Packers would consider playing him against Big D.
In Nelson’s absence, fellow wideouts Randall Cobb and Davante Adams combined for a whopping 241 yards and four touchdowns off 13 grabs against New York. Green Bay’s pass-catchers picked up the slack, but Nelson’s status will be monitored daily: His presence is incredibly important against a loaded Cowboys club.
