Cheese Curds, 10/10: Jordy Nelson’s injury still remains unclear

New, comments

We at least have a slight idea of a few things that it’s not.

NFL: Green Bay Packers at Dallas Cowboys Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

One of the big mysteries coming out of the Green Bay Packers’ victory in Dallas on Sunday is what is going on with wide receiver Jordy Nelson. Number 87 was not on the field for the Packers’ final, game-winning drive, as he was replaced by Geronimo Allison.

Nelson was coy about the specifics of the injury after the game, leading some fans and media members to hope that there would be more of an explanation from the coaching staff on Monday.

That did not happen.

For now, we will need to wait one more day before learning what Nelson’s problem is, as the team will need to issue some clarification in Wednesday’s injury report. But for now, we unfortunately have to sit and wait.

Here’s a look at what we do know about Nelson, as well as the rest of your Packers news on this Tuesday morning.

Adams' toughness is certainly one of the critical factors in his favor, but since the start of last season he has caught 16 touchdowns, trailing only teammate Jordy Nelson in that span.

One stat proves Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is clutch | Packers Wire
Aaron Rodgers has thrown four touchdown passes in the final 30 seconds of regulation since 2014, the most of any player in that span. And that doesn't include the times when he has gotten the team in position for a game-tying or game-winning field goal.

The Vikings led just 3-2 at halftime of last night's game, but the big story is why they decided to put Sam Bradford on the field. Now it's all but assured that Case Keenum will start when the Packers come to town on Sunday afternoon.
