Green Bay, WI (Sports Network) - Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson
won't test out his ailing hamstring until at least Friday, putting his status
for this weekend's upcoming game with Arizona in question.
Nelson did not play in last Sunday's 24-15 victory over Jacksonville due to
the injury, which he sustained in practice last week. The fifth-year pro leads
the Packers with 532 receiving yards on 40 catches and has scored five
touchdowns so far this season.
Fullback John Kuhn, also inactive for the Jacksonville game with a hamstring
strain, will sit out Thursday's session as well, while rookie defensive end
Jerel Worthy is still undergoing evaluation after suffering a concussion
against the Jaguars.
The Packers also announced that wide receiver Greg Jennings will have surgery
on his torn abdominal muscle in Philadelphia later in the week. The veteran,
who has played in just three of Green Bay's first eight games due to the
injury, had his original appointment postponed by superstorm Sandy.
