Jordy Nelson still not practicing; D-line thin

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 31, 2012 – 12:22 pm

WR Jordy Nelson, who missed last Sunday’s game with a hamstring injury, was not practicing on Wednesday in the portion of the workout open to reporters. Mike McCarthy will provide an update post-practice.

Also not practicing were the two defensive linemen who left Sunday’s game with injuries — Jerel Worthy (concussion) and Mike Neal (ankle), leaving that position a little thin.

Other players who have missed recent games also have not yet returned to practice. FB John Kuhn (hamstring), LB Nick Perry (knee) and CB Sam Shields (ankle) remain out for now.

    I believe that Green Bay will hold out as many players as possible to heal simply because they are playing Arizona, a good college team could beat Arizona.

    Along with the following being a bi-week, Greenbay should be in good shape for the last half of the year.

    T J Do you really think a college team even if it’s Alabama could beat a pro team? They wouldn’t score!

    I hope that the Pack can withstand all of the injuries this week and hold the most hurt players in reserve. I also think that is sort of wishfull thinkng as the Pack seems to need everyone they can get to play. Oline hurting, D line hurting. D backs hurting. And there really arent any running backs. Now with recievers down, where can they hope to go. Now the key play may be if A Rod can center the ball high enough so that he can run back and get it in the shotgun then loft a pass high enough so that he can skoot down and catch it, and then……no just wishful thinkin.

    To T J Roth: You are vastly underestimating the Cardinals and vastly overrating the Packers. We could easily lose this game and that would hurt a lot. Get real.

    TJ ROTH:
    The Cardinals will give the Packers a lot more to deal with than the Jags did last week. This game will be the turning point of the season for the Packers. If they go into the Bye week at 5 – 4, they will be lucky to stay ahead of Detroit, and they will have no chance of catching the Bears. They had better get all hands on deck if they hope to keep it close and the way this Offence is playing, they are risking having Rodgers go down as well!

    You know Mike never makes excuses for how the team performs when there is a bunch of injuries(next man up mentality) but us fans can be realistic. Look how we did against the Jags at home with the amount of injuries we had. They DO have an impact when you are missing that many starters. This is not a gimme game with all the injuries we currently have.

    This is the NFL, no team should ever be overlooked. Any given Sunday as they say. Arizona has a top 5 defense and Fitzgerald can blow the doors off any defense. Our Pack needs to be focused and take this game seriously or else this could be a long bye week.

    I agree this team is coming to play smash football and Aaron put it simply they are going to want to crush us because of the butt kicking by the 9ers. I hope we go no huddle 3 step and get cobb and driver involved early.

    What the Packers really Need is some type of production from the Tight End Position.This could also take some pressure of the running game

    Finley needs to start playin like he
    should and step up. That would fix alot.

    Nelson is of paramount importance to the Packers this week and every week for that matter. Finley needs to start working harder and become the gamebreaker we all know he can be. Wasn’t long ago he was considered one of the best at his position. Grow up JFin, we need ya

    Finley could go as far as I’m concerned, perhaps we could get a r.back for him.

    Here is the long and short of it, injuries matter, and the Pack has too many. Zona will come in ready to fight but the Pack will prevail (Zona’s offense can’t hang). Go into bye week and get healthy. Then walk into the Lions den and kick em around like Sue did to E.D.S. last year. Then by that time we’ll get Benson back, Woodson back, Jennings will be hopefully running at that point, and our team will be almost healed up (baring no other injuries) and ready to fly to N.Y. and serve some much needed payback. Packers need to be 7-3 and healthy going into N.Y. and is it very possible.

    If the Pack plays like they last Sun. they will get beat against Arizona, that was an ugly win!!!
