  Packers | Jordy Nelson still has breathing issues    Mon Jan 16, 10:08 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) said Sunday, Jan. 15, that he still isn't able to breathe normally because of his ribs injury.

Footballguys view: Nelson's status for the NFC Championship Game against the Falcons is up in the air. There's a chance he could be very limited or maybe not even participate in practice during the week. Let's call him a game-time decision for now, and we'll all be monitoring his practice status.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers throws for 356    Sun Jan 15, 08:24 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 28 of his 43 pass attempts for 356 yards, two touchdowns and an interception and had two carries for 16 yards in a 34-31 win over the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Jan. 15.

Footballguys view: What an instant classic we just saw. Rodgers led the way for the Packers and made pinpoint throws on the run or from the pocket to get the win. He's been on a hot streak that few have matched, and we'll see if that can continue next week in Atlanta for the NFC Championship Game.

Green Bay Packers TE Jared Cook finished with six catches on a team-high 11 targets for 106 yards and a touchdown in a 34-31 win over the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Jan. 15.

Footballguys view: Cook's catch to set up the game-winning field goal will be replayed for years. It was an amazing display of his athleticism, concentration and body control. Without WR Jordy Nelson, the Packers went to Cook more and he came through.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy aiming to improve    Sat Jan 14, 10:07 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) said he has no doubt he will be ready for the 2017 season, and he has an offseason training program in place designed to help him become more explosive and agile.

Footballguys view: Lacy had serious ankle surgery, but all signs indicate he'll be ready for the start of the regular season. He's entering free agency on a down note after being limited to only five games in 2016. There's a good chance the Packers bring him back at a cheap price.

  Packers | Jared Cook will be FA after season    Sat Jan 14, 03:42 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Jared Cook will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: Cook made it through 10 games with the Packers this year, and there were times in the regular season (Week 11 vs Washington) that he looked like the player he always could be. The potential and talent has always been there with Cook, but staying healthy and staying consistent holds him back.

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 13, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional round playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) has been ruled out for the divisional round game against the Dallas Cowboys. He's feeling better every day, according to head coach Mike McCarthy, and the team will re-evaluate him Monday, Jan. 16.

Footballguys view: Bad news for the Packers here. They'll need all the firepower they can muster against the Cowboys on Sunday. Without Nelson, QB Aaron Rodgers may not be as effective. They'll be turning to guys like Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and rookie Geronimo Allison to do more in the Divisional Round.

Green Bay Packers WR Jeff Janis (quadriceps) is participating in practice Thursday, Jan. 12.

Footballguys view: Janis has been a routine disappointment to most Green Bay fans and will remained mired among the "other" receivers not named Davante Adams, Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. Even rookie Geronimo Allison is higher in the pecking order.

  Packers | Jordy Nelson to miss practice    Thu Jan 12, 12:06 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) will not participate in practice Thursday, Jan. 12.

Footballguys view: We just don't see him playing on Sunday, and even if he did Nelson would be no more than a reserve player. Consider Davante Adams and Randall Cobb as strong alternatives this weekend.

Updating an earlier report, Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) is making progress, and the team will evaluate him Friday, Jan. 13, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Footballguys view: We don't expect Nelson to play, and instead see Davante Adams and Randall Cobb as the players to get the most work this weekend. Geronimo Allison, Ty Montgomery and tight end Jared Cook might see a little extra work as well.

  Packers | Pessimism on Jordy Nelson    Thu Jan 12, 11:34 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) seems unlikely to play in the divisional round against the Dallas Cowboys after QB Aaron Rodgers' comments Thursday, Jan. 12, shed doubts. 'We're going to try to get this one and hopefully get him back if he can't play this week,' Rodgers said.

Footballguys view: We don't expect Nelson to be playing, nor do we expect that to slow Aaron Rodgers down. Last weekend Nelson was hurt and Randall Cobb and Davante Adams stepped up. That's who we are tagging to do so again against Dallas.

  Packers | Geronimo Allison could have big role     Sun Jan 8, 10:55 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison will 'have to step up and play extended time' if WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) is unable to play against the Dallas Cowboys in the divisional round of the playoffs.

Footballguys view: Allison stepped up with Randall Cobb banged up, and now he has to do the same if Nelson is down. The undrafted rookie from Illinois can make difficult catches seem routine, and he makes plays with a large catch radius.
