Packers downgrade WR Jordy Nelson, misses Thursday practice

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson @JordyRNelson was a late addition to the injury report as a limited participant after his hamstring tightened up Wednesday. On Thursday, Nelson was downgraded after being held out from practice. There has been no official announcement yet from the team that suggests that Nelson is in jeopardy of not playing in Week 8.

Fantasy Analysis:

The Packers have already been without Greg Jennings @GregJennings and losing Nelson would be a big blow as well. Donald Driver @Donald_Driver80 did not practice Wednesday and hasn't produced much this season regardless. Nelson's injury will likely make him a game-time decision so fantasy owners should be prepared for him being inactive. Randall Cobb @rcobb18 has in a big way over the last month and should Nelson not play, Cobb becomes a must-start if he isn't already.

Ugh....just traded Decker for Jordy. Looked like I got a steal for a week or two.
