Nelson left the Week 2 game with a quad injury.

News you need to know

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): Nelson was forced from the Week 2 game with a quad issue, but it doesn't look like it will keep him out for long. He hasn't been ruled out for Week 3.

General News (Tue Sep 19): is '50-50' to play in Week 3, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, but Nelson's quadriceps strain isn't considered serious.

Week 3: vs Cincinnati Bengals

All WR vs CIN

FBG says: Great matchup. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers pass attack amassed 343 passing yards and two touchdowns last week. Rodgers got off to a very sluggish start last week with only 85 passing yards, an interception, and a fumble that was returned for a touchdown in the first half. He picked it up in the second half though, especially in the fourth quarter once the game was already well out of hand--amassing 149 yards and both of his touchdowns during this garbage time. Rodgers spread the ball around all night as Davante Adams led the way with eight receptions for 99 yards and a touchdown. Tight end Martellus Bennet was Rodgers most targeted receiver, but only hauled in 5-of-11 targets for 47 yards. Randall Cobb has a solid showing but was forced to exit in the fourth quarter with a shoulder injury. His status is looking positive for this week though. The big story for the Packers right now is Jordy Nelson's injured quadriceps, forcing him out of last week's game early in the first quarter before amassing a single catch. As of early in the week, it looks like Nelson's status for Week 3 is still up in the air. Cincinnati's defense has been statistically solid against the pass this season, allowing only six yards per pass attempt and 209 total passing yards. Although most of this can be attributed to the Bengals inept offense that made it easy for teams to protect their lead by rushing the ball, this defensive unit actually has actually played well on their limited opportunities to defend against the pass. From a pass-rushing perspective, the Bengals own a 9.8% sack rate--eight highest in the league. Geno Atkins has been solid on the interior of that line, applying consistent pressure on the quarterback--including six pressures and two sacks last week against the Texans. Cornerback is a weakness for the Bengals, but they have a solid safety over the top in Shawn Williams. The Packers offensive as a whole will by far be the Bengals toughest test of the season, as Aaron Rodgers is a mismatch for almost any defense.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 1 vs SEA (8 / 7 / 79 / 1 rec)

While Nelson didn't see as many targets as Randall Cobb, he made the most critical one. His touchdown came near the end of the third quarter when Aaron Rodgers, as Aaron Rodgers does, saw the Seahawks had too many men on the field and sent Nelson on a seam route downfield. Nelson got open, made the catch and stretched the Packers' lead to eight points, which turned out to be insurmountable.
