Packers WR Jordy Nelson, RB Alex Green don't practice Thursday

It's not looking good for Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson @JordyRNelson and running back Alex Green @AGreen_20 in Week 16. Both players have yet to practice this week, and that didn't change on Thursday. Nelson was left to do only some running drills on the side during Thursday's session. He has been out of action since Week 13 due to a hamstring injury.
Green has a concussion and has yet been cleared to practice.

Fantasy Analysis:

Barring some big change, I don't think either of these players suit up against the Titans this weekend. The Packers' offense has been OK without Nelson, and the fantasy impact here is that James Jones becomes a high-risk, high-reward WR3, but at this point, the reward looks to be outweighing the risk.
If Green is out, the Packers will likely press forward with a three-man backfield consisting of Ryan Grant, DuJuan Harris @Ol_sLy_Foxx and John Kuhn. Grant will probably get the most work, but Harris has the most upside. Regardless, even though the matchup is very favorable, you're probably better off ignoring this situation for now.
