But we're not going to do anything until Saturday.

Various reports on Monday alluded to Nelson having significant internal damage, including rib and lung, that could jeopardize his availability for Green Bay's next game and any possible playoff contests thereafter. Nelson was driven several yards into the Packers' sideline area, where he was treated for several minutes before being taken to the locker room for further examination and then the hospital.

Nelson may have been Green Bay's only 1,000 yard receiver this year, but Sunday night saw Cobb and Adams more than carry the load. "I'll probably know more about where Jordy stands come Friday".

Coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that Nelson will be in the "rehab group" through Friday. Geronimo Allison, who is next in line to step up, is poised for a prominent role in the Divisional Round contest with the Cowboys if Nelson is limited or ultimately ruled out.

Cant he Green Bay Packers beat Dallas without Jordy Nelson?

One fractured rib would have been bad enough, but two fractured ribs really does give quite the hit to the chances that he can play this Sunday in Arlington. Starks has missed the last four games. Cobb, in his first game back after missing the final two of the regular season because of an ankle injury, finished with five catches for 116 yards and three scores. The Packers would certainly prefer to have their number-one receiver available for a playoff matchup, but the offense also remains plenty capable without him. "He's a special player", veteran right tackle Bryan Bulaga said. He made some nice plays for us, tough guy to bring down as well.

"We got good news on Blake, so I'm hopeful that he may practice this week", McCarthy said.
