Nelson game-time decision, Kuhn out, McMillian questionable

Posted by Mike Spofford on November 2, 2012 – 3:46 pm

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.”

    I looked at the injury list. With six players out for Sunday, I guess the roster competition to make the 46 up for Sunday is not very strong.

    Why wasn’t Daniel Muir or Anthony Hargrove brought back this week?

    Finley acts like hes still in the hood,he likes to be singled out,and is a attitude night mare. Hes arrogant and not a team player,i seen this train accident coming.Dump the fool first chance we have and he can wonder what could have been in greenbay when he plays for jets.

    Yikes I’m worried about Mcmillian which might mean J BUSH could get on the field with D….thats a problem!!!!

    Agree with naples and justiron. We need to sign greg at the end of the year, dump this garbage prick. JBUSH can’t cover ANYONE. ball watches way too much

    I sure do agree on comment about bringing Hargrove back. Of course we dont know all about the situation, but it could be a help at this point and we need help. I am also unsure of J.B. in the D backfield. Thats a scary one. I know he is trying really hard, but wow can he do it for the Pack? As this year winds down, you got to look at what the Packers did in the draft and jump up and down. All of those players are helping and even tho hurt at times, have saved many a day this year. Some of those players are well over expectations. Go Pack. Get another draft class next year, but try and get a real running back and an O line guy.

    Woe, Justiron, I didn’t know a person could manage to pack so much bigotry into one statement. First, that there is some agreed-upon perception of how young men act “in the hood.” That anyone who acts a certain was is, indeed, from a “hood.”

    If Bush has to be on the field for some dime coverage, Arizona is the team least likely to be able to exploit it. Bush is arguably the best kick gunner in the game.

    Hargrove is a loud, look-at-me guy. So get rid og Finley for that reason bu sign this guy…and by the way, who do we cut in order to sign him?

    Zombo is back for how long,hes proven injury prone,just watch.We arent getting a return on him that i see.BYE

    Ok Mcahthy, stop pretending that you have a running game; admit that all you have is a sissy crybaby QB who’s terrified of getting hit. Alex Green would be on the practice squad on any other NFL team.

    Rick sorry i seem to upset you i quess,its just his brass attitude he has is hard to explain,its my thoughts that in the hood,its survival and unforgiveing attitude you must have.Guarded type hardness.I believe most understand my comment as was meant,i just think he has a chip on his shoulder,and is not a team player,something he needs to get over.Hes a packer now, relax and enjoy,drop the front.

    First I have faith in the organization here in Green Bay. They don’t make rash decisions. I think we are getting too worked up over this season. This team has and is going through another season of challenges. Give these professionals time to work out these new challenges. It was a rocky start but things are better with a winning streak going on now. I agree somethings need to improve but I also think they knew that and I think they are trying to address them. Enjoy these moments.

    We have to trust team management and coaches who make these personnel decisions. They have a pretty good track record. We are without Woodson and Shields, but with House healthy I think we have enough talented DBs to cover the Cardinals WRs. Shut down Fitz and we should be OK – just don’t play so much zone – it hurt us last week.

    YES A WIN IS A WIN….BUT WHEN THEY PLAY SF, NY,OR ANY OTHER TEAM WITH A PASS RUSH AND AT LEAST AN AVERAGE QB…CAPERS AND THE O-LINE WILL BE EXPOSED.. CAPERS WILL GET TURNOVERS AGAINST WEAK QB AND APPEAR LIKE HE KNOWS WHAT HES DOING…. HOW EVER AFTER THIS WEEKS GAME HIS GIG WILL BE UP…..AND SO WILL THE POINTS;AGAINST PLAYOFF CALIBER TEAMS THAT IS…..FURTHER AT DETROIT,BEARS,NY, OR MINNI THERE WILL BE NO RUN GAME AND ROGERS WILL BE RUNNING FOR HIS LIFE….IF YOU WATCH THE GAME LAST WEEK, AFTER EVERY SACK HE WAS ACTING LIKE HE WAS ON THE CONCUSION COMITEE !!! EVERYBODY ALWAYS TALKS ON HOW DEEP GB RECIVER CORP IS…WELL EITHER THATS A LIE, OR HAVING TO KEEP YOUR FLANKER IN TO BLOCK, TO HELP THE O-LINE IS THE PROBLEM…. BUT THE REAL PROBLEM WITH THIS TEAM RUNS DEEP, THEY ONCE AGAIN ARE THE YOUNGEST TEAM IN THE LEAGUE AND FOR THE LAST 7 YRS THEY CLAIM THEY DEVLOPE TALENT ??? WHICH PUTS THE BALL IN EITHER TT COURT OR MM …EITHER TT CANT DRAFT OR THE COACHING IS SUB PAR….WHEN DOM GOT HERE THE D IMPROVED DRAMTICLY BUT LIKE EVERY WHERE HES GONE HIS PLAYBOOK GETS TOO FAT AND AND HIS DEE PLUMITS TO THE BOTTOM OF THE NFL.. CAMPMEN NEVER COULD COACH OR DEVLOPE SOLID PLAYERS…. WITH OUT A-RODS RUSHING YDS THIS IS THEE WORST RUSHING ATTACK IN THE NFL FOR THE LAST 5YRS…LIKE IN PHILLY WHEN YOU START MAKING AN O-LINE COACH YOUR D-CORDINATOR IT SHOWS THAT THE COACH IS MORE CONCERNED WITH HIS FRIENDS THAN PUTTING THE BEST MAN FOR THE JOB AT THE HELM…( SEE RB EDGAR COACHING THE WR OR GRAMM AT QB,OR JONES AT MLB ) I KNOW WERE 5-3 ILL EVEN SAY WERE GONNA BE 6-3 SOON ENOUGH ! HOWEVER AFTER THE BY WEEK THE JUNK WILL HIT THE FAN AND THE PROLONGED EFFECT OF POOR COACHING WILL CHOKE THE OFFENSE; AND WITH CAPERS STAND UP DL RUSHING APPROACH (FLAG FOOOTBALL )OR HIS TWO DL APPROACH WILL KILL ANY CHANCE AT PRESSURING THE QB… LET IT BE CLEALY KNOWN IM NOT A FAVRE FAN ROGERS FAN OR STARR OR ANY OTHER PLAYER OR COACH FAN…. IM A PACKER FAN…. THIS TEAM CANNOT WIN IN JAN IN GB !LIKE I SAID LAST YEAR…AND NOW SADLY THIS TEAM HAS DETERIORATED SO MUCH IT CANNOT WIN ON THE ROAD EITHER….

    Lets put Crabtree in Finley’s slot, give the big tatto’d monster a chance to mix it up in the middle of the secondary.

    Finley’s dropped so many passes and has been injured since I remember hearing his name added to our roster. . . His “crap-shoot” status is not what its churched up to be on all of the articles praising our passing game.

    With an all ready thinned out Pack, why woulnd’t you trim the fat. I hate seeing Packers go, but I’d rather get someone who’s actually on the field than 2-3 seasons on the “IR” lottery.
