Jordy Nelson Injury Updates

Raiders WR Jordy Nelson is in danger of missing Sunday's game against the Cardinals after suffering a knee bruise last weekend, HC Jon Gruden said. The 33-year-old Nelson has no reason to push through this injury in Oakland's lost season. The Raiders will also be without WR Martavis Bryant (knee), leaving Brandon LaFell and Seth Roberts atop the depth chart.

The Packers released WR Jordy Nelson on Tuesday, clearing $10.2 million in cap space, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Nelson's production dropped precipitously in 2017, albeit without QB Aaron Rodgers for much of that stretch. The veteran will head into his age-33 season this fall, however, with an ACL tear and various other lower-body injuries behind him. We'll see where he lands, but it's tough to expect more than a low-WR3 fantasy outlook even in the best situation.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson injured his shoulder in the 2nd quarter of Saturday night's game against the Vikings and won't return. He finishes with 3 catches on 5 targets for 11 yards. It's been a lost season for Nelson, who has struggled with the absence of Aaron Rodgers and perhaps a declining skill set. He turns 33 in May.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson (back) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’s good to go for Sunday’s game in Minnesota. Nelson could see a bunch of CB Xavier Rhodes but remains a must-start in season-long leagues.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson put in a full practice on Wednesday. He's listed on the injury report with a back issue, rather than the previously reported hamstring. Regardless, Nelson is on track to play against the Vikings this weekend. He'll see plenty of shutdown CB Xavier Rhodes in that one, but Nelson is worth keeping in fantasy lineups.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson was on the sidelines for the final drive of yesterday's win over the Cowboys with a hamstring injury, according to's Michael Silver. Neither Nelson nor HC Mike McCarthy had an update after the game. The fact that Nelson couldn't be out there at such a crucial time, though, suggests that this is something we'll need to monitor closely this week.

ESPN's Adam Schefter calls Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quad) "50/50" for this weekend's game against the Bengals. Schefter also confirmed that Nelson's injury is not serious, so he shouldn't be looking at more than a 1-game absence. We'll keep a close eye on his practice participation throughout the week. Packers-Bengals doesn't kick off until 4:25 pm ET on Sunday.

The Packers don't believe WR Jordy Nelson's quad injury is serious, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky. Nelson was scheduled for additional testing on Monday, but HC Mike McCarthy gave no update at his press conference. Our next hint might not come until Green Bay returns to practice on Wednesday.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky hears there's "only a small chance" Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) plays against the Falcons on Sunday. Broken ribs generally take about 6 weeks to heal, so it's tough to see Nelson getting cleared just 2 weeks after his injury. "Can't tell you if Jordy's going to practice Wednesday, but he did all the work in the [regeneration] workout today," HC Mike McCarthy said Monday. "So that's a good sign." Perhaps Nelson could return if Green Bay reaches the Super Bowl, but look for Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison to serve as the top 3 WRs in Atlanta. TE Jared Cook should also continue to play a big role in the passing game.

The Packers didn't have an update on WR Jordy Nelson's rib injury after Sunday's win over the Giants. But HC Mike McCarthy admitted that he Nelson's availability for the Divisional Round in Dallas is in question. "I obviously have concern for Jordy," McCarthy said. Nelson was in obvious pain after taking a shot to the ribs in the 2nd quarter. He ended up taking a cart back to the locker room and was ruled out at halftime. We should learn more about his status over the next few days. Nelson's absence would leave Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison as Green Bay's top 3 WRs.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson is questionable to return to Sunday's game vs. New York with a rib injury. Nelson took a shot from Giants DB Leon Hall in the first half. If he remains out, it'll give a boost to guys like Jared Cook, Randall Cobb, Geronimo Allison and Jeff Janis.

Update: Nelson was ruled out for the game at halftime.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson was limited in Wednesday's practice with the hand injury he suffered near the end of last week's loss to the Falcons. We haven't heard any indication that it'll keep him out of this Sunday's game vs. the Colts, but we'll keep an eye on him over the next few days.

Knee tendonitis is keeping Packers WR Jordy Nelson from the start of training camp, according to ESPN's Ed Werder. It's believed to be the result of over-compensating during his rehab from last year's torn ACL in the opposite knee. "Not viewed as serious currently," Werder adds. These compensation-related lower-leg injuries can pile up, though. Former NFL head team doctor David Chao notes that tendonitis "can linger for months."

Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) has been running full speed "for weeks," according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky.  "I feel great and everything’s gone smoothly and hopefully that continues," Nelson said.  He tore his ACL on August 23, so he'll be over a full year removed from the injury when the 2016 season kicks off.  Nelson turns 31 in May, but his rapport with QB Aaron Rodgers could carry him to another WR1 season.
