What's the Latest on Jordy Nelson's Status?

Green Bay's offense didn't seem phased without their best receiver Jordy Nelson on Sunday when they took down the top-seeded Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium. Aaron Rodgers and Co. put up 34 points in the win.

Nelson suffered a rib injury in Green Bay's win over the New York Giants on Jan. 8, and has been sidelined since.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy declined to comment on if Nelson would practice on Wednesday, but did say the receiver was able to do all of the work in his workout on Monday.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports that Nelson has a small chance to play Sunday.

Nelson is Rodgers' favorite target, and the receiver created some challenging matchups for Atlanta's defense in the previous meeting between these clubs. He caught four passes for 94 yards and one touchdown.

Nelson isn't the only Packer dealing with a significant injury. Safety Morgan Burnett left Sunday's game with a quad injury and did not return, while cornerback Quinten Rollins suffered a concussion in the Green Bay's final regular-season game and has yet to return to action.

The first injury reports from both teams will be released on Wednesday.
