Mystery solved. The Green Bay Packers’ Wednesday injury report indicated receiver Jordy Nelson has a back injury of some sort.
That would be why he didn’t play the final drive against the Dallas Cowboys.
While Nelson was on the injury report, he still practiced on Wednesday. He was listed as a full participant and appears to be a go for Sunday.
“I went through everything like normal [and] feel good,” Nelson said. “It’s nothing serious. Everything is good. Like I said, practicing all week and playing on Sunday.”
Interestingly, running back Ty Montgomery was also a listed as a full participant. He has broken ribs,
With the emergence of rookie Aaron Jones against Dallas, we thought the Packers might find a convenient way to hold Montgomery out until after the bye week.
We doubt Montgomery wants anything to do with that plan, however.
