McCarthy on Jordy Nelson: “We’re going to declare him out for the game Sunday”
GREEN BAY — Coach Mike McCarthy said Friday, January 13th that wide receiver Jordy Nelson has officially been declared out for the Sunday, January 15th Divisional Playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys.
McCarthy said they will re-evaluate Nelson’s condition on Monday.
Nelson suffered what is reported as multiple rib fractures. He was hurt in the second quarter of the Packers’ 38-13 win in a wild-card game last weekend against the New York Giants during a hit by safety Leon Hall.
Nelson had an NFL-high 14 touchdown catches in the regular season as quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ top target in the Packers’ prolific passing attack.
