Jordy Nelson: Flex Sleepers Ready to Produce If Packers WR Can’t Play

November 3, 2012   ·     ·   Jump to comments

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson's playing status is going down to the wire, but the Pack's game is early on Sunday, which will give patient fantasy owners nearly a full slate of replacement options if he can't go. 
Nelson missed last week's game, and he didn't practice this week, but he has apparently shown some signs of progress. 
Kevin Seifert of ESPN reported that Nelson tested the hamstring on Friday and there were no reports of setbacks, so he is at least moving in the right direction.
My gut says he won't play. Hamstring injuries aren't something that can be rushed, but that's a pure guess. Keep an eye out for Nelson's status, and keep these guys in mind for a contingency plan.
