Mike McCarthy said on Friday that for the second straight week WR Jordy Nelson would be a game-time decision with his hamstring injury. Last week, Nelson tested the hamstring on Sunday morning but was declared inactive. This week, he did not practice at all but rehabbed only.
“Jordy’s work today went well,” McCarthy said. “They pushed him further than they have all week. We’ll see how he is in the morning, and we’ll give him the opportunity to take it to the game.”
Meanwhile, FB John Kuhn also has a hamstring injury but has already been ruled out for the second straight game. Also ruled out are WR Greg Jennings, who had abdominal surgery on Thursday, LB Nick Perry (knee), CB Sam Shields (ankle), CB Charles Woodson (collarbone) and DL Jerel Worthy (concussion).
The addition to the injury report is rookie S Jerron McMillian, who sat out practice on Friday due to tightness in his back. He is listed as questionable.
“I don’t really have a whole lot of information, but I’m hopeful that he can go,” McCarthy said.
DE Mike Neal, who left last week’s game with an ankle injury, practiced on a limited basis on Friday after going harder in the padded practice Thursday and is listed as probable for the game. With Worthy’s absence, that still leaves the Packers with five healthy defensive linemen in Neal, Ryan Pickett, C.J. Wilson, Mike Daniels and B.J. Raji (ankle), who is also listed as probable.
Other comments from McCarthy on Friday:
–He’s “encouraged” by the work of RB James Starks in practice this week, saying he looks like his old self. “He looks like he’s ready to go. He might have some opportunities.” McCarthy indicated Alex Green is still the No. 1 back.
–The week of preparation wasn’t razor sharp, but McCarthy is confident the players sense the importance of getting one more win before the bye week.
“I think the energy has been outstanding,” McCarthy said. “I think they’ve really cranked it up, the sense of urgency to win this football game. It hasn’t been as clean as I would like. There’s been a segment in all three practices that has not been quite where it needs to be, but for the most part it’s been a good week.”

WR Jordy Nelson and FB John Kuhn were not on the practice field on Friday during the portion of the workout open to the media. Mike McCarthy said earlier in the week that Nelson and Kuhn, who are both nursing hamstring injuries, might practice on Friday, but their absence puts their status for Sunday’s game in serious doubt.
Also, S Jerron McMillian was only observing practice on Friday but was not doing any drills. McMillian has not been on the injury report all week, so he’ll have to be added today. If McMillian is unable to play on Sunday, and with Charles Woodson already out, the Packers would have to turn to CB Jarrett Bush as the dime defensive back when the defense goes to six DBs.
McCarthy will have the final injury update after practice.
